PictureBox Inc. announced this morning they will be bringing the 80-page graphic novel So Long, Silver Screen by the cartoonist Blutch to North American, English-language audiences. The cover design will be by the comics artist and cartoonist David Mazzucchelli.

The graphic novel, which PictureBox says is the first full-length book to be published in North America from the influential and award-winning Blutch, will appear in Spring 2013. The work is made up of a series of interlocking short stories that go back and forth between history, theory and vignettes -- guest appearances from Burt Lancaster, Jean-Luc Godard, Claudia Cardinale and Tarzan among others.

Blutch made his comics debut 25 years to the release of the planned book in the legendary anthology Fluide Glacial. He was awarded the Angouleme Grand Prix, perhaps the highest honor in cartooning, at the conclusion of the 2009 show.
