Matt Fraction and Elsa Charretier team up for "November," a series of graphic novels for Image Comics
A great creative team and a strong premise can go a long way when pitching a comic book. Image Comics’ upcoming November has both in spades: it will be a series of three graphic novels, focusing on the unexpectedly intersecting lives of three women and their connection to a single man, with a creative team boasting Matt Fraction, Elsa Charretier, Matt Hollingsworth, Kurt Ankeny, and Rian Hughes.
How many Eisner nominations do you think this already has?
We’ll have to wait until November to judge November’s quality, but in the meantime, check out the details below.
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING WRITER MATT FRACTION TEAMS WITH ELSA CHARRETIER ON FORTHCOMING GRAPHIC NOVEL SERIES, NOVEMBER
One night. One city. Three women. November.
PORTLAND, Ore. 07/08/2019 — Image Comics is pleased to announce the first in a sequence of three graphic novellas by Matt Fraction (Sex Criminals, Hawkeye) and Elsa Charretier (Star Wars, Infinite Loop), with colors by Matt Hollingsworth, exquisitely crafted lettering by cartoonist Kurt Ankeny, and book design by Rian Hughes, titled November.
In November, the lives of three women intersect in a dark criminal underground. As fire and violence tear through their city over the course of a single day and night, they find that their lives are bound together by one man—who seems to be the cause of it all.
“November is a crime thriller about three women connected by unforeseen and terrible circumstances—the kind of random encounter with chaos and darkness that upends lives without warning, walking the line between accident and catastrophe,” said Fraction. “As a serialized series of novels, the format of November gives us the space and time to explore who these women were before and after everything changed for them, in a sprawling story of chaos and coincidence where everything happens according to a pattern, but no plan ever goes off without a hitch. It's the kind of story only comics can tell in the way only a comic can tell them, and I couldn't ask for better collaborators than Elsa, Matt, and Kurt.”
Charretier added: “Characters so alive they draw themselves, scripts that feed my imagination for days on end, November is the most challenging project I've worked on, and collaborating with such a talented team has been everything I dreamed it'd be.”
November, vol. I: The Girl on the Roof will hit comic shops on November 6 and other retailers on November 12.
