The origin of Too Much Coffee Man

Shannon Wheeler has written and published more than a half dozen issues of the comic book 'Too Much Coffee Man', as well as 'Too Much Coffee Man's Guide for the Perplexed' and other collections of comic books. He has done illustrations for books like 'Jobs that Don't Suck' by Charlie Drozdyk and 'Do I Come Here Often' by Henry Rollins.

Wheeler's comic book creation, Too Much Coffee Man, often referred to as TMCM, is a cynical hero. The character derives his powers from a potent brew of espresso, but TMCM is more often hampered than helped by his caffeine addiction. The comic book managed to mix the current obsession with coffee with scathing satire and sizzling silliness that often went far beyond most comics, and it won Shannon Wheeler the prestigious Eisner Award.
