Sequart is proud to announce two new books: Logan Ludwig’s Moving Panels: Translating Comics to Film and Julian Darius’s This Lightning, This Madness: Understanding Alan Moore’s Miracleman, Book One.
Moving Panels explores the differences between the related media of film and comics, using specific examples of comics adaptations in order to demonstrate how such differences change their narratives. It’s an excellent and approachable study that advances our understanding of this crucial topic — and the medium itself.
This Lightning, This Madness expands upon writing done for this website and is the first of a projected four-volume series analyzing and exploring the whole of Miracleman, as written by both Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman. This first volume introduces the series and Miracleman‘s convoluted history, analyzes the first of Alan Moore’s three books (illustrated by Alan Davis and Garry Leach), and addresses side stories featuring the series’s secondary character Big Ben.
These two books join the previously-announced Classics on Infinite Earths: The Justice League and DC Crossover Canon, by Julian Darius; Shot in the Face: A Savage Journey to the Heart of Transmetropolitan, edited by Chad Nevett; and Voyage in Noise: Warren Ellis and the Demise of Western Civilization, by Kevin Thurman and Julian Darius. Frankly, these three books have been too long delayed, but we are now moving aggressively to complete them — including updating their covers.
Although 2013 is still young, Sequart has already released both Curing the Postmodern Blues: Reading Grant Morrison and Chris Weston’s The Filth in the 21st Century and The Devil is in the Details: Examining Matt Murdock and Daredevil. We’re hoping you’ll stick with us, as we look forward to our most ambitious year yet.
