Sequart Releases The Future of Comics, the Future of Men: Matt Fraction’s Casanova

The Future of Comics, the Future of Men: Matt Fraction's CasanovaSequart Organization is proud to announce the release of The Future of Comics, the Future of Men: Matt Fraction’s Casanova, authored by Geoff Klock (How to Read Superhero Comics and Why).

Matt Fraction, Gabriel Bá, and Fábio Moon’s Casanova is a stylish adventure about a sexy, amoral, universe-hopping, time-traveling, science-fiction spy caught in a war between the militaristic E.M.P.I.R.E. and the decadent and villainous W.A.S.T.E., led by a be-suited and bandaged cackling madman in sunglasses.

The Future of Comics, The Future of Men argues that beneath its pop surface, Casanova is doing more. It challenges the corporate-driven comic book production model, in which Disney and Time-Warner own all the major super-heroes. And it critiques the vision of masculinity, limited and damaging, that informs so much of modern super-hero comics and movies.

With the debut of Casanova: Acedia (on 28 January), now is the perfect time to explore the depth of the first half of the Casanova story.

The book features a striking cover by Casanova artist Fábio Moon. The book runs 136 pages and is available in print and on Kindle.

Geoff Klock holds a doctorate from Oxford. He is the author of How to Read Superhero Comics and Why and has previously authored chapters in two books from Sequart Organization: The Devil is in the Details: Examining Matt Murdock and Daredevil and Minutes to Midnight: Twelve Essays on Watchmen.
