W. Maxwell Prince And Martín Morazzo’s ‘Art Brut’ Gets Fully Remastered By Image Comics This December
by Olly MacNamee
The Ice Cream Man team of writer W. Maxwell Prince and artist Martín Morazzo are fully re-lettered, remastered, and re-titling their firt major collaboration The Electric Sublime as under originally intended title of Art Brut this winter from Image Comics.
“The world of fine art is falling apart, and only Art Brut knows how to fix it. Alongside the Bureau of Artistic Integrity, Art Brut follows the titular Arthur Brut the Mad Dreampainter (and his trusty sidekick, Manny the Mannequin) as they dive back into the very paintings that made him insane…in order to save reality itself from crumbling.
A colorful, gonzo romp through art and art history, Art Brut is equal parts police procedural, hyper-fantasy, and psychological thriller—a veritable Pollock-splatter of comics genres tossed onto one giant pulpy canvas!
Each issue features new covers, new design, and a new Silver Age-style backup story featuring the art hero that no one’s ever heard of—until now!”
Popverse had the excluisve, and Prince told them:
How lucky we all are, to have Arthur Brut keeping watch over the world of art and keeping us all safe. A lot of people don’t know he exists, but we’re happy to remedy that this December.
Art Brut mixes two things I love the most: comics and fine arts, so it’s not a surprise it’s one of my most dearest works! I’m smiling from ear to ear knowing everybody will be able to read it soon!
Art Brut #1 will be available on Wednesday, December 7th from Image Comics with the following covers:
- Cover A Morazzo & Lopes
