As demonstrated by his earlier projects, Piskor is a creator fascinated with different presentations for his work. As a result, Red Room is already planned to be released in multiple formats. Initially to be published in the standard 32-page comic book format — with an extended 64-page first issue — the series will later be collected in three trade paperbacks, each collecting four issues of the initial run.
“We’re thrilled to both be continuing our relationship with Ed, who’s given us the perfect opportunity to get back into the monthly comic book periodical business,” added Fantagraphics associate publisher Eric Reynolds; the company had previously released Hip-Hop Family Tree “Red Room peels back the curtain on a shadowy side of humanity. The series is chock full of graphically horrific imagery, punctuated by Ed’s sharp sense of humor, gorgeous cartooning, and dynamic storytelling.”
Red Room will launch in May.
