FATALE The Deluxe Edition Volume One

art / cover SEAN PHILLIPS
MARCH 5 / 288 PAGES / FC / M / $39.99
Collects FATALE #1-10
The best-selling, award-winning team of ED BRUBAKER and SEAN PHILLIPS finally bring their hit book FATALE to the gorgeous Deluxe format they helped pioneer.
Josephine is cursed, and in a series that darkly blends American crime noir with unnamed Lovecraftian horrors, we follow her from 1950s San Francisco, where crooked cops hide deeper evils, to mid-'70s L.A., where burnt-out actors and ex-cult groupies are caught in a web around a satanic snuff film...and in the middle of it all is Josephine, with a power to die or kill for.
This beautiful oversized edition contains all the extras that BRUBAKER and PHILLIPS fans have come to expect from their deluxe hardbacks, including behind-the-scenes art and stories, sketches and layouts, back page illustrations, and several of Jess Nevins' historical essays, as well.

Gregory's Girl

My friend David Holman sent me this the other day, a poster I drew for a showing of Gregory's Girl at my old school back in 1982. I'd love to include it in volume 2 of The Art Of Sean Phillips if there ever is one!

Reject #50

Well, The Art Of Sean Phillips book should have shipped today, but apparently it's held up in customs. New on-sale date is now November 6th. I'll have about a dozen copies with me at the Lakes International Comic Art Festival in Kendal, Cumbria this weekend though if anybody wants one...

Final rejected image, from Stephen King's The Dark Tower, ink on paper, 2010.
