Acclaimed comics creator Mathieu Bablet will debut the English language edition of The Beautiful Death in September 2017, and to celebrate, publisher Titan Comics has commissioned a cover for the first issue by Eisner Award nominee Brandon Graham.
The Beautiful Death is the latest project from Titan’s line of translated comics, which previously featured Snowpiercer, Elric,World War X and more. “I really love Mathieu Bablet’s story. We made contact at the Angoulême Festival earlier this year, and I wanted to find a way to bring his work to an international audience,” Brand Manager Chris Thompson said of the series. “Getting Brandon to do a cover seemed like a no-brainer, with their similar aesthetic and approach. We’re so pleased with what he turned in, and I hope it entices people to check out this gorgeous interior work.”
The official synopsis for The Beautiful Death is as follows:
The apocalypse has been and gone. The age of humanity is at an end, and horrifying insect aliens from the depths of infinite space are the new masters of the Earth!
What does resistance mean, when there’s nothing left to fight for?
That’s what Wayne, Jeremiah, and Soham, the only survivors of the devastating invasion, struggle with – seeking a future that justifies their presence on a ruined world.
As they pick through the remains of human civilization, keeping out of reach of the bugs, none of them suspect that they are part of a much larger plan, one that involves another, unknown, survivor!
