Hardcover Edition of Bad Boy Coming in November – Featuring New Cover Art and Sketches by Simon Bisley
Official press release
July 25th, RUNNEMEDE, NJ – Dynamite Entertainment proudly announced today the release of a brand-new hardcover production of Bad Boy by Frank Miller and Simon Bisley! Originally produced as a strip for the British Edition of GQ, Bad Boy is a powerful piece of graphic fiction featuring the story of Jason, a little boy who comes to realize his parents aren’t who they claim to be, and he’s part of a sterile experimental community. Dynamite’s edition of Bad Boy will feature an all-new cover and sketches by Simon Bisley, created exclusively for this release!
Dynamite stated, “The tenth anniversary of Frank and Simon’s Bad Boy is a time for celebration. As a matter of fact, Jason himself states he is number one and is happy to show it on the cover! We couldn’t be happier that Frank and Simon have chosen Dynamite for the new release of Bad Boy. Not only are Frank and Simon both legends in the comic industry, but they have extended their recognition well beyond the mainstream comic audience by taking their artistic talents into film, music, and more. Bad Boy is a pure work of genius, a credit to both creators and a work which we are extremely proud to present – both to fans of Frank Miller and Simon Bisley, as well as to a whole new generation of readers.”
Bad Boy will hit the racks as a large 8½”-x-11″ hardcover that can fit on the shelf next to Curious George and Horton Hears a Who!
The Dynamite hardcover edition of Bad Boy by Frank Miller and Simon Bisley is scheduled for release in November 2007. Recommended for mature readers.
