ALL-STAR ARTISTS GO 'DAPPER'
'RETURN OF THE DAPPER MEN' TO FEATURE AN ALL-STAR PIN-UP GALLERY
Los Angeles, CA (September 14, 2010) As the buzz for the upcoming Archaia original graphic novel RETURN OF THE DAPPER MEN continues to grow, so does the roster of Dapper men and women who are contributing to the book Examiner.com has called groundbreaking and iFanboy.com says is shaping up to be the 'it-book' of New York Comic Con.
In addition to award-winning designer Todd Klein providing the cover and interior design work, an incredible array of artists have put on their best bowler hats and pinstripes to create a remarkable gallery of pin-ups that will be appearing in the book. From some of today's hottest comic book and graphic artists comes a variety of takes on the incredible world and characters of RETURN OF THE DAPPER MEN (hardcover, full color, 128 pages, 9.5 x 11, $24.95), created from the minds of Jim McCann (Hawkeye & Mockingbird) and acclaimed visual artist Janet Lee.
The full list of contributors to the 12 pin-ups featured in the book is as follows:
Adrian Alphona and Christina Strain

The fact that this many people wanted to and agreed to provide their own vision of a world that has existed for so long only in our minds was mind-blowing, says the book's author, Jim McCann. The sheer volume of talent and the spectrum of the way each artist approached the work has been overwhelming and exciting to watch.
