RETURN OF THE DAPPER MEN releases cover

Better watch out NEW YORK  COMIC-CON,  Archaia Comics just released the final cover for the RETURN OF THE DAPPER MEN made by Todd Klein.


THE RETURN OF THE DAPPER MEN:

ORIGINAL GRAPHIC NOVEL FAIRY TALE BY JIM MCCANN AND JANET LEE FEATURES COVER DESIGN BY EISNER AWARD-WINNING DESIGNER TODD KLEIN

“RETURN OF THE DAPPER MEN (hardcover, full color, 128 pages, 9.5” x 11”, $24.95) is a visually stunning fairy tale that combines steampunk with fantasy and science fiction with Renaissance style. Together, McCann and Lee have created a world where J. M. Barrie, Lewis Carroll and Maurice Sendak meet Jim Henson and Tim Burton—all sharply dressed in a pin-stripe suit and a dapper bowler hat!”

Jim McCann posted this also in his blog and some comments from Janette Lee were added:
“I love the look of books from the turn-of-the-century and classic children’s fiction. I love how they incorporate filigree and natural elements with illustrations that are now iconic.”

From Jim McCann:
“We wanted to go for a timeless feel, given both the importance that time plays in the story and the fact that this is a sort of classic fairy tale of old with some modern twists.”

Limited advance copies of the RETURN OF THE DAPPER MEN hardcover will be available at New York Comic Con and will go on sale in comic shops and wherever books are sold in November.
