Official Press Release
Marvel is pleased to announce that Omega: The Unknown Premiere HC has been selected by Amazon.Com as one of 2008’s top ten graphic novels! The acclaimed team of novelist Jonathan Lethem and rising star artist Farel Dalrymple present a re-imagining of Marvel’s classic Omega The Unknown, creating one of the year’s most talked about releases! Centering on a teenage prodigy from Washington Heights, and his relationship with Omega, a mysterious and silent Super Hero from another world, this epic, nuanced story remains one of the 2008’s most critically lauded releases. The graphic novel that has everyone from NPR to Maxim to Men’s Health buzzing is available in stores NOW!
Jonathan Lethem commented, “”Omega the Unknown is a great character — a kind of archetypal Super Hero who’s also a blank slate. The original story had an uncanny power over my imagination, and seemed potentially to have the intrigue and complexity of a great novel. I’ve always been drawn to comics as a medium and this chance to work with Marvel — and to revive this character and bring his story to fulfillment — is a kind of a dream-come-true for me.”
