PictureBox To Publish "So Long, Silver Screen" From Blutch -- Cover Design By David Mazzucchelli
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.
