Keeping the World Strange in Comics Stores Wednesday

Keeping the World Strange, our book on Warren Ellis and John Cassaday’s Planetary, hits comics stores Wednesday (14 September 2011).

Keeping the World Strange: A Planetary GuideThe book features essays by current regular Sequart website contributors Julian Darius, Kevin Thurman, and Cody Walker, who also edited the book. So if you’re a fan of the website, you should definitely check out this book.

Another essay’s written by Timothy Callahan, author of our Grant Morrison: The Early Years and current contributor to CBR and Tor.

Another is by Patrick Meaney, author of our Our Sentence is Up: Seeing Grant Morrison’s The Invisibles and director of the celebrated documentary film Grant Morrison: Talking with Gods.

Other contributors include A. David Lewis, CBR’s Chad Nevett, Ross Payton, Andy Richardson, the legendary Peter Sanderson, and Caleb Stokes. The book’s excellent, pulp-influenced cover is by Ean Moody.

The book, solicited a few months ago, was delayed during our final editing and printing processes. While we sincerely apologize for the delay (and have anguished about it), we can assure you that when you spend your hard-earned money on Keeping the World Strange, it represents significant and enjoyable work that reflects well on us and our company.

The 180-page book retails for $19.95. Please support your local comic-book store by picking it up this Wednesday.

And if you’d tell your shop about your support for Sequart, we’d be eternally grateful. We couldn’t do this without you, our readers, and many thanks for making this dream a reality.
