Time To Get The Fever
Multiple Eisner Award winning grand masters Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips—of Reckless, Pulp, Criminal, and Kill or Be Killed fame—with colours by Jacob Phillps (That Texas Blood), will bring fans another sure-fire hit in the upcoming, Night Fever. This original graphic novel will hit shelves in June 2023 from Image Comics and here’s a first look at its cover of it courtesy of Ed Brubaker’s email newsletter plus the first two pages in colour and a look at a proof copy also from Brubaker…
Night Fever is a pulse-pounding noir thriller featuring the Jekyll-and-Hyde story of a man facing the darkness inside himself. This riveting tour-of-the-night is a must-have for all Brubaker and Phillips readers.
“Night Fever is a story that’s been scratching at the back of my skull for a long time now and man, is this a weird one,” said Brubaker. “Inspired partly by old Black Lizard noir novels and weird and sexy European comics from the 70s, this book is a dark trip into what being alive right now feels like, but hopefully a thrilling one for our readers, too. I know it’s the best art of Sean’s entire career, which feels almost unbelievable. But it’s true.”
In Europe on a business trip, Jonathan Webb can’t sleep. Instead, he finds himself wandering the night in a strange foreign city, with his new friend, the mysterious and violent Rainer as his guide. Rainer shows Jonathan the hidden world of the night, a world without rules or limits. But when the fun turns dangerous, Jonathan may find himself trapped in the dark… And the question is, what will he do to get home?
“One of my great pleasures over the last decade has been watching Ed and Sean produce story after amazing story—from Fatale in January 2012 right up to last month’s Reckless graphic novel, Follow Me Down—so what better way to start kick off the next 10 years than with yet another astonishing entry into their illustrious canon with Night Fever,” said Eric Stephenson, Publisher at Image Comics. “If you’ve enjoyed Ed and Sean’s previous collaborations, as well as Ed’s work with Steve Epting on Velvet and Marcos Martín on Friday—trust me, you are in for a treat.”
Night Fever (ISBN: 978-1-5343-2609-5) will be available on Wednesday, June 14 at local comic book shops and on Tuesday, June 20 it will hit shelves at independent bookstores, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, and Indigo.
Night Fever will release digitally across many platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play.
