Matt Kindt’s ‘Revolver’ On the Way From Vertigo
Life-defining choices aren’t always easy to make. They can mean the difference between a life fulfilled and a life, well, less than fulfilled. Online sneaker purchases, setting a relationship status on Facebook, deciding between a croissant or a bagel breakfast sandwich, these are the things readers definitely won’t find in “Revolver,” an original graphic novel coming this July from “3 Story: The Secret History of the Giant Man” creator Matt Kindt.
Vertigo’s Graphic Content blog, however, does have an accurate first look at the OGN, including its stylish cover and three pages of interior artwork along with this story synopsis:
“Sam is a young man on the brink of turning 30 who works for a major newspaper in St. Louis. Faced with two very different realities-one of chaos and one of boredom–he tries to put the pieces back together. “
After seeing just three pages, Kindt’s rich storytelling skills seem to ensure anything but the mundane, which is good because I’m already set on sneakers and sandwiches. I’ll be looking forward to a little more vicarious choice-making intensity when “Revolver” drops this summer.
