Though it was originally published at Image Comics, superstar writer Matt Fraction and company have moved their psychedelic superspy book, Casanova, to Marvel's vanity imprint, Icon, a few years back when he started working there and people thought that imprint might amount to something. Times are changing though, and the Image logo in the corner of your book may mean more than even Marvel's. At the Image Expo today, it was announced that Image would publish Acedia, the next volume of Casanova, with the main story written by Fraction and drawn by Fabio Moon, and backups written by Michael Chabon and drawn by Gabriel Ba. Moon and Ba have been alternating artists on the book since the start. Image will also publish hardcovers of older Casanova material.
In addition, Fraction announced a new series, ODY-C, with Christian Ward, which is a gender-swapped version of the Greek epic, The Odyssey, but IINNNNN SPPPAAAAACCCCEEEEE (there's a lot of that going around). Fraction also writes Satellite Sam and the wildly popular and semi-autobiographical Sex Criminals for Image, of course, which means his Image output may soon be exceeding his Marvel stuff.
We like to talk shit here at The Outhouse, so take this statement seriously: it's a great time to be a comics fan.
UPDATE - Press Release from Image:
In 2014, Matt Fraction (SEX CRIMINALS, SATELLITE SAM), Fábio Moon (Daytripper, Serenity), and Gabriel Bá (Daytripper, The Umbrella Academy) team up with author Michael Chabon to bring the adventures of Casanova Quinn back with CASANOVA VOL. 4: ACEDIA.
