CASANOVA Returns to Image in Style

“All a comic would have to do is say ‘Matt Fraction’ on the front for me to pick it up and feel excited about what was inside.”–Michael Chabon, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay


Image Comics is very pleased to announce the return of CASANOVA by Matt Fraction (SEX CRIMINALS, SATELLITE SAM, Hawkeye), Gabriel Bá (The Umbrella Academy, Daytripper), and Fábio Moon (Daytripper, B.P.R.D.) in a series of deluxe hardcover “Complete Editions.” The first of these, CASANOVA VOLUME 1: LUXURIA, will be released in October 2014, followed by CASANOVA VOLUME 2: GULA in November, and CASANOVA VOLUME 3: AVARITIA in December.
Casanova “Cass” Quinn was born into a life of privilege but turned his back on it to pursue his own interests — namely stealing, spying, and living a hedonistic life with few moral compunctions. The black sheep in a family of international super-spies, Cass is pulled back into their sphere after an evil organization targets the Quinns. In a game of hidden agendas and double espionage across parallel universes, Cas must choose an identity. Is he the decadent thief named Casanova Quinn? Or is he the top secret agent named… Casanova Quinn?
Writer Fraction is known for his metafictional winks and deft melding of genres in the mega-hit SEX CRIMINALS, and CASANOVA puts his skill at the forefront in a science fiction spy story shot through with psychedelia, with gorgeous art by renowned Brazilian artists Bá and Moon.
In January 2014, Image Comics announced that CASANOVA would return with a fourth volume, ACEDIA, co-written by Fraction and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon.
Each Complete Edition of CASANOVA collects four issues of the critically-acclaimed series in a deluxe, oversized hardcover volume, complete with covers and extra content. VOLUME 1: LUXURIA will be in comic book stores on October 22 and bookstores on November 4; VOLUME 2: GULA will be in comic book stores on November 12 and bookstores on November 25; VOLUME 3: AVARITIA will be in comic book stores on December 17 and bookstores on December 30. All are now available for pre-order.

Praise for CASANOVA, Matt Fraction, Gabriel Bá, and Fábio Moon:

“The idea of “Why not?” that is the spirit Fraction, Bá, and Moon capture in Casanova; a story told by creators stoned out of their heads on the possibilities that the medium provides.” –David Faust, Sequart
“Casanova is a brutally elegant fever dream of science fiction, spy movies and super-heroes, ripped through a hole in space-time specifically to blow your mind.” –Laura Hudson, Comics Alliance
“With such a wide cast and with so much going on, it’s impressive to see how much love and attention Fraction gives to every character, to every moment and to every event happening all at once. Nothing is left underdeveloped or pushed out of the way to for something better; it all feeds into itself like an ouroboros of pop-fueled pandemonium. This comic feels like the pure id of Fraction, limitless in scope and entirely open-ended from every perceivable angle.
“And good lord, Gabriel Bá is basically perfect.” –Matthew Meylikhov, Multiversity Comics

* sometimes i have to pee. or eat. or want to take my kid over to get his ADVENTURE TIME comics signed by infamous Canadian cult criminal Ryan North, or by one of his legit art heroes, Mr. Jeff Smith. Please don’t be like that guy who threatened to murder me because i dared have to get up from my table at a time inconvenient to him. I promise i’ll do my best to be there as much as i possibly can. IN FACT don’t threaten to murder anyone. Ever. About anything. As far as hyperbole goes, it’s a shitty one. And, and, and maybe just we, as a, what, a culture, a fandom, drawn to hyperbole for effect, or out of laziness, or for comedic emphasis  could, y’know, just work on that leaving that one in the toolbox, just in general. okay.
