Reason numero uno to be cheerful if you’re a comics fan on this January Wednesday?  The re-release of Casanova in graphic novel format.

Matt Fraction Gabriel Ba Fabio Moon Casanova Luxuria Comics Graphic Novel Meet Casanova Quinn: prodigal son of a law-and-order family hell-bent on keeping the world safe and sound, now blackmailed into betraying his father and the international law enforcement organization he controls.  LUXURIA collects the first volume of CASANOVA as its titular star transforms from devil-may-care thrill-seeker into the most dangerous man in the world.  What happens when the ultimate player gets played?

Gorgeously re-colored and re-lettered by hand, this staggering psychedelic spy-fi epic is collected for the first time as it was meant to be made.  By the Eisner award-winning team of Matt Fraction (INVINCIBLE IRON MAN, THOR, UNCANNY X-MEN), Gabriel Ba (UMBRELLA ACADEMY, BPRD: 1947), and Fabio Moon (DAYTRIPPER, SUGARSHOCK). With all-new, all-different, never-before-seen bonus material!

Easily one of my favorite comics in years, Casanova is one of those rare books I get a absolute thrill out of selling to newbies and well-read comic fans alike.  Mind-bending, genre-bending, funny, sleek, sexy… it’s light years ahead of much of what the medium churns out these days.

Enjoy!
