Matt Fraction and Gabrial Bá’s stylish espionage thriller Casanova is coming back this July from Icon, Marvel’s creator-owned imprint, after a long hiatus. Previously published in a limited palette at Image, this newly remastered version is now in full color. Marvel sent out some preview pages of the first issue this morning and it looks a-okay.
This July, the most popular mind-bending, sci-fi spy opus of the decade returns with Casanova #1, from the Eisner Award-winning team of Matt Fraction, Gabriel Bá and Fábio Moon, now exclusively at Icon! Fans new and old will be able to experience the exhilarating and crazy antics of agent Casanova Quinn as he gets abducted across space and time to infiltrate his own father’s E.M.P.I.R.E of law and order – in FULL COLOR! Also, fans will be treated to an ALL-NEW backup by Gabriel Bá and Fábio Moon.
“I could not be more thrilled that Casanova has found its home at Icon. Relettered, remastered, and in full and furious color, this is Casanova the way it was meant to be experienced,” explained Matt Fraction. “Everything I’ve done at Marvel has been a trick so they’d actually let me do Casanova here. Ha ha! They can’t take Eisners back, right?”
