The near and the not so near future.

So, I was looking around on the internet, checking out what's going on, when I come across the Image Solicitations for November. Imagine my surprise when I got to the fifth comic book on the list:


ROCK'N'ROLL (ONE-SHOT)written by FABIO MOON & GABRIEL BA art by FABIO MOON, GABRIEL BA, BRUNO D'ANGELO & KAKO cover by FABIO MOON
Romeo and Kelsie just want to go home, but life has other plans. Strange things happen all around in a story about that music that follows you wherever you go. When it comes to rock 'n' roll, you don't have to understand what they're saying to know what they're talking about.
November 16 o 32 pg o BW o $3.50


A short time before San Diego, we received an e-mail from Eric Stephenson asking if we wanted to publish our ROCK'n'ROLL comic book with Image, and we were thrilled, mostly because it brought back good memories.

When my brother and I first met Bruno and Kako (he was called Franco at that time), some fourteen years ago, Image comics was just starting and it was the dream of nine out of ten artists: do your own comic book, with your own characters, or just be a big fan-boy and draw whatever Jim Lee was drawing. For the four of us, Image comics was the first venue of artistic freedom we had contact outside the standard Marvel/DC hero comics, and we dreamed of someday working with them.

That dream came true.

Even more than we expected, since there's more tricks from the Image sleeve along with that rabbit:



This is an ad for a book coming out from Image next year, and you'll be able to see it in all it's glory on the back cover of Fell # 1 when it reaches stores in a few weeks.

I'm glad I will be able to get Rock And Roll. I'll even buy a couple of extra copies.

And that Casanova ad looks simply gorgeous.

Congratulations!
