Official Press Release
This July, the most popular mind-bending, sci-fi spy opus of the decade returns with Casanova #1, from the Eisner Award-winning team of Matt Fraction, Gabriel BÃ¡ and FÃ¡bio Moon, now exclusively at Icon! Fans new and old will be able to experience the exhilarating and crazy antics of agent Casanova Quinn as he gets abducted across space and time to infiltrate his own father’s E.M.P.I.R.E of law and order – in FULL COLOR! Â Also, fans will be treated to an ALL-NEW backup by Gabriel BÃ¡ and FÃ¡bio Moon.
“I could not be more thrilled that Casanova has found its home at Icon. Relettered, remastered, and in full and furious color, this is Casanova the way it was meant to be experienced,” explained Matt Fraction. “Everything I’ve done at Marvel has been a trick so they’d actually let me do Casanova here. Ha ha! They can’t take Eisners back, right?”
Fans and critics agree – Casanova is like no other book on stands today:
“Devastatingly geeky – and brilliant.” – Alex Pappademas, GQ.com
“Together, Fraction and Moon make for the sort of indy comics dream team I never knew I wanted but can’t imagine going without again.” – Jesse Schedeen, IGN.com
“There are very few comics that I would recommend unreservedly to all readers, but Casanova is one of those projects that doesn’t come along very often: instantly attention-grabbing, endlessly creative, entirely unpredictable and effortlessly entertaining.” – Dave Wallace, ComicsBulletin.com
“I would recommend this comic without reservation.” – Brian Cronin, ComicBookResources.com
If you’ve never experienced Fraction, Moon & BÃ¡’s Casanova before, then you don’t know what you’ve been missing. Casanova #1 hits comic shop shelves on July 8th, and believe us – you won’t regret it.
