Dover Announces Border Worlds Graphic Novel for August 2017!

Dover Graphic Novels, an imprint of Dover Publications Inc., has announced the Border Worlds graphic novel for August 2017! It is already listed on The hardcover will be 336 pages, with a new 30-page concluding chapter and portfolio of unpublished art, with an historical overview introduction by comics legend Stephen R.

This is the Image Comics house ad which ran in Splitting Image 80-Page Giant (2017), announcing the Border Worlds hardcover.

The official blurb: "With nothing left to lose, Jenny Woodlore joins her brother's ramshackle trucking business on Chrysalis, a huge floating platform on the edge of the galaxy — only to find herself in the middle of a cosmic conflict that could change the very fabric of the universe. This deluxe hardcover collects the complete run of Simpson's epic space drama as published by the Kitchen Sink Press in Megaton Man and its own self-titled series, finally adding an all-new concluding chapter. New Afterword by Stephen R. Bissette. Suggested for mature readers."

Another dust jacket design under consideration.

  1. It's going to be great to have the entire story in one volume. I was always fascinated by the approach you took with the storytelling. I recall reading an Amazing Heroes article in which you discussed this. Unfortunately, that issue was lost to the ages. Perhaps in some future posting you could write about it. Anyhow, this book is my absolute must buy of 2017

  2. I'll have to dig out that issue of Amazing Heroes and scan that interview at some point.
