The collected edition of this unique, text-free masterpiece is almost ready. If you do not order a copy in advance, we cannot guarantee that you will be able to get one. More about that below.
STEP BY BLOODY STEP is a fantasy opus by the Eisner Award nominees behind Coda ( selection officielle Angoulême 2021) MATIAS BERGARA ( Hellblazer, The Scumbag ) and SI SPURRIER ( X-Men Legacy, Hellblazer, The Spire ). It tells the story of a little girl who wakes up one day with nothing. No name. No memory. No language. Nothing…
… except a giant.
Weighing in at a whopping 192 pages, filled to the gills with new and exclusive background information, script-to-page comparisons, and poetic chapter interstitials, this is the best graphic novel you’ll read this year. A coffee table artifact. A bookshelf treasure. It’s the ideal gift for any reader of great comics…it’s the ideal cure for a reader of bad comics…it’s the perfect gateway drug for someone who doesn’t yet understand how magical and moving comics can be.
In short, it is indispensable.
Don’t believe us? This is what literally every great creator in the western comic book world thinks of SBBS. You can’t argue with this gang.
But here’s the thing. The graphic industry remains on the ropes. If stores don’t get a healthy portion of pre-orders, the first print run will be small. And there will most likely be no further runs. So if you want a copy – even if you just want to browse – you should register your interest as soon as possible with your friendly seller.
Final orders are expected on July 18. Don’t hang around.
