The highly anticipated U.S. edition of Karmen by bestselling writer and artist Guillem March (Batman, Catwoman, Harley Quinn) will showcase a dreamy variant cover by lauded artist Milo Manara. Originally published by Dupuis in Belgium as a graphic novel, Karmen will be reproduced and introduced to U.S. audiences in single-issue periodical format this March from Image Comics.
Karmen is a provocative story that explores grief, suicide, and redemption told as a visual feast-for-the-eyes and featuring ethereal, fantastic artwork to set the tone. Punctuated with humor, Karmen is the story of Catalina, a recent suicide, who is taken under the wing of the strange and quirky angel, Karmen, on a journey of discovery and reflection.
Catalina’s story is packed with surprises and metaphysics, tenderness and humor, and dives deep into the topics that matter and are brought to life by the creator behind the acclaimed Monika (Titan Comics) and The Dream (Europe Comics).
Karmen #1 cover A by March, cover B by Manara, and Cover C blank will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, March 10.
