Official Press Release
This December, Shadowline expands THE DEFINTIVE TED McKEEVER Library with McKeever’s Eisner-nominated 21st century quixotic superhero, EDDY CURRENT!
“What’s cool about Eddy Current, is that in going over these chapters for the collected library edition, I’m struck and reminded by how truly timeless his tale is,” McKeever said. “Ironically, Eddy Current is more relevant today than it was 22 years ago. Go figure!”
McKeever’s EDDY CURRENT begins with its titular hero confined to an asylum until a mail-order Dynamic Fusion Suit allows him to escape and pursue his dream of saving the world. This definitive edition continues the tradition set by volume one, TRANSIT, by featuring EDDY CURRENT as never before with the complete, re-mastered story and many never or rarely seen pieces.
THE DEFINITIVE TED McKEEVER LIBRARY, VOL. 2: EDDY CURRENT (OCT082308), a 358-page black and white hardcover for $34.99, will be in stores December 17th, 2008.
