Scene Of The Crime

SCENE OF THE CRIME DELUXE HC
writer ED BRUBAKER

art /cover MICHAEL LARK & SEAN PHILLIPS

NOVEMBER 14

128 PAGES / FC / OVERSIZED / M

$24.99

From the co-creators of Gotham Central and FATALE comes a lost crime noir masterpiece. Long out of print, and presented here for the first time in an oversized hardback edition, SCENE OF THE CRIME was the first time ED BRUBAKER and MICHAEL LARK worked together – before their acclaimed runs on Daredevil and Gotham Central – and it was inked by SEAN PHILLIPS, who also designed this deluxe edition.

This is where it all began, with a hard-hitting mystery story, a modern day "Chinatown" that garnered nominations for Best Miniseries and Best Writer in the 2000 Eisner Awards. Also included in this new collection are behind the scenes art and stories, a new foreword by BRUBAKER, and many other extras. This is the book you'll want on your shelves.

I'm definitely glad to hear that it's going to be reprinted. My brother, Justin, and I haven't been able to find it anywhere. Love the fact that it's black and white. congratulations Mr. Phillips along with Brubaker and Lark

Actually, it's going to be in colour. I'm working on the files right now, cleaning them up and getting them ready to print over-sized.

oh well that's interesting. I had assumed the regular mini was in black and white...I'm not sure how I figured that, but your guys' work in color is also amazing as well.

Love the cover Sean. Can you talk about the process for it? Was it easier to do the foreground, middle ground and background on separate sheets?

Michael pencilled the cover on one piece of paper, but I did indeed ink bluelines of the foreground, middle ground and background on separate sheets.
