The first fully-recolored issue of Matt Fraction's indie masterpiece "Casanova" hits stands this week, republishing what was once the first two issues of the series into one lush, over-sized package through Marvel's creator-owned Icon imprint. We talked with Matt last week about the book, which he began as an indie creator before his rise at Marvel , and we've also got a 9-page preview from the first arc of the series illustrated by Gabriel Ba -- previously black and white and green -- with spectacular new colors by Cris Peter. Check them out after the the jump, and do yourself an immense favor by buying "Casanova" #1 this Thursday. (Holiday, remember?)
