New Book on Matt Fraction’s CASANOVA from Sequart
Sequart 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 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 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 superheroes. And it critiques the limited and damaging vision of masculinity that informs so much of modern superhero comics and movies.
With the recent debut of Casanova: Acedia, now is the perfect time to explore the depth of Casanova.
