Official Press Release
October 29th, 2007 (Berkeley, CA) – Jamie McKelvie’s SUBURBAN GLAMOUR #1, hot off the heels of his critically-acclaimed mini-series PHONOGRAM, has officially sold out at the distribution level.
“SUBURBAN GLAMOUR is the first work I’ve done completely solo, following LONG HOT SUMMER with Eric Stephenson and PHONOGRAM with Kieron Gillen,” said series writer/artist Jamie McKelvie. “Writing and drawing on my own was initially nerve wracking, but news like this has me very excited. I’m especially happy there’s a solid readership who will experience the story getting much stranger and far more dangerous for Astrid and company.”
SUBURBAN GLAMOUR is a four-issue modern day fantasy mini-series featuring a teenage girl, Astrid, whose world spirals out of control once her childhood imaginary friends turn out to be real. Her previously make-believe friends reveal themselves to be harbingers for a greater evil centered upon the hometown she’s eager to leave. The mini-series has already received high praise from such sources as FELL’s Warren Ellis.
Ellis said, “If PHONOGRAM didn’t already convince you that Jamie’s one of the major new talents of the decade, please do make sure you get a look at this.”
SUBURBAN GLAMOUR #2 (AUG072034), a 32-page full color comic book for $2.99, is currently available for reorder and will be in stores in December. LONG HOT SUMMER (JUL051621), an 80-page black & white original graphic novel, and PHONOGRAM: RUE BRITTANIA (JAN071929), a 152-page black and & tradepaperback, are in-stock.
