Archaia Entertainment Previews: Okko: The Cycle of Air #3 + Return of the Dapper Men!

We have two awesome previews for you from Archaia Entertainment. The first is the official Return of the Dapper Men trailer which is an original graphic novel in HC format which comes out in November, and after that is Okko: The Cycle of Air #3 which arrived in comic shops yesterday! Check’em out!

Looks pretty cool doesn’t it? I love the trippy feel to the book which is conveyed through the art. Here’s some additional info on Return of the Dapper Men:

“Imagine a land where Time itself has ceased to exist. Where children have played so long it’s almost become work, machines have worked so long they have begun to play and all the clocks have stopped at the same time. A land that’s about to change when 314 identical-looking dapper men rain down from the sky, bringing time back with them.

This is Return of the Dapper Men, part fairy tale, part steampunk, all original, the highly anticipated graphic novel that’s already being hailed as “groundbreaking” and “an instant contemporary classic.” The book features a Foreword by Tim Gunn (Project Runway) and pin-ups by 12 of today’s hottest artists!

Now, Archaia is proud to unveil this stunning new trailer, featuring an original score, animated artwork and an exciting glimpse into the graphic novel. Return of the Dapper Men is a visually stunning fairy tale that combines steampunk with fantasy and science fiction with Renaissance style, brought to life from the minds of award-winning playwright and comic book writer Jim McCann (Hawkeye & Mockingbird) and critically acclaimed visual artist Janet Lee. Together, these two have created a world where J.M. Barrie, Lewis Carroll and Maurice Sendak meet Jim Henson and Tim Burton. All sharply dressed in a pin-stripe suit and a dapper bowler hat.

A limited number of copies of Return of the Dapper Men: Advance New York Comic Con Collector’s Edition will be available for sale at the Archaia booth (#2031) at New York Comic Con, October 8-10 at the Jacob Javits Center in New York, and will be available wherever books are sold in November. To pre-order a copy, use ISBN code 978-1932386905.”

Okko: The Cycle of Air #3, written and illustrated by Hub, came out yesterday in comic shops everywhere! In case you missed it, here’s a preview of the issue complete with solicit info:

“Left for dead after a terrible duel, Okko lies abandoned in the countryside as the Celestial Winds rise and the season of kamikaze cocoons begins. His traveling companions have but one thought: to avenge their friend and master. But can they, even together, hope to defeat that killing machine, the dread demon hunter known as Kubban Kiritsu?”
