Midnight Sun GN Available for Pre-Order


Yep, that’s right–I’m gonna have to wrap up this book and bring it on home, come Hell or high water, ’cause SLG’s taking orders for the thing right now. Here’s the skinny on the book itself:

The year is 1928 and an Italian airship expedition to the North Pole has mysteriously disappeared. Excitement changes to uncertainty when the Italia and her international crew reach the pole, issue a celebratory radio communiqué, and are never heard from again. As a worldwide search effort gears up, a down on his luck American newspaper reporter is dispatched to the top of the Earth to cover the event.

Written and illustrated by Eisner Award nominated cartoonist Ben Towle, this 144 page graphic novel collects the three issues of the SLG Publishing comic book series and then adds in what would have been issues 4-6 in one handsome graphic novel. The complete story will be presented for the first time.

Damn straight it’ll be handsome! Better get you one–no, two–today! You can pre-order the book at a sizable discount directly from SLG:

Crazier still is this YouTube “trailer” the folks at SLG have put together for the book:

    how goes the hoboing

  2. Greg Burgas says:

    Is it available through Previews yet? My comics shoppe gives me a pretty good discount, so if I can, I’d like to order it through them.

  3. Ben says:

    I don’t believe it’s listed in Previews yet. I think the book stores generally do pre-orders before stuff winds up in Diamond. But I’ll definitely post the Diamdond order number when I get it, and I’ll email you as well.
