Official Press Release
4 December 2008 (Berkeley, CA) – Image Comics Shadowline continues the acclaimed TED MCKEEVER LIBRARY SERIES this February with McKeever’s industrial apocalypse, METROPOL!
“The continuing success of the TED MCKEEVER LIBRARY is easily one of Shadowline’s proudest moments,” Shadowline Publisher Jim Valentino said. “Having METROPOL join the definitive editions of TRANSIT and EDDY CURRENT is something long overdue. In fact, with Ted’s large body of work both behind and before him, we’re looking forward to continuing the line’s tradition for a very long time to come.”
In METROPOL, McKeever reinterprets the biblical apocalypse through the eyes of non-entity Jasper Notorchord as angels and demons invade the stark future industrial landscape made popular in his earlier work, TRANSIT. Like the previous volumes of the Ted McKeever Library, this volume will not only feature METROPOL and its sequel, METROPOL A.D., in their entirety, but will be loaded with never and rarely seen material.
TED MCKEEVER LIBRARY VOL. 3, METROPOL (DEC082276), a 424-page black & white hardcover for $39.99, will be in stores February 25th, 2009.
