Andrew Vachss

Andrew Vachss is an attorney whose only clients are children. He's also the author of more than two dozen novels (including the Burke series), a long list of nonfiction pieces, and Another Chance to Get It Right: A Children's Book For Adults. It was in that book that Dark Horse published one of Vachss's first collaborations with Frank Caruso, an award-winning creator and illustrator and the art director for King Features Syndicate. The piece is an example of the "triptych haiku" they developed, a three-panel illustration which has proven unparalleled in its ability to communicate. Their success in that collaboration led them to develop Heart Transplant, a book that attempts the same kind of communication in order to achieve its goal: to reset the cultural software so that people change the way they think about bullying.
