Madison, WI (PRWEB) December 09, 2011
Marvel.com freelancer Ben Chabala has launched a new blog dedicated to the upcoming comic book from Kelly Roman and Michael DeWeese entitled THE ART OF WAR (HarperCollins, May 2012). The blog, http://www.theartofwarcomicbook.com, will attempt to deconstruct the creative and business aspects surrounding the watershed graphic novel set 20 years in the future when Wall Street is militarized and China is the dominant economy.
"This book has the potential of becoming a cultural phenomenon, and I want to try and use the blog to analyze the making of it, the innovative build up to its release on May 8th, and the critical and fan reactions," states Chabala.
The authors and publisher, Harper Perennial, have agreed to provide the blog with exclusive content, including artwork, interviews and video.
Early buzz about the book is strong. “Phenomenal artwork, a brilliant story - one of the best graphic novels I've ever read,” says Tarquin Pack, a producer of the movie adaptation of Kick-Ass and Executive Producer of X-Men: First Class.
