Jeremy Holt, Felipe Cunha and Dearbhla Kelly graphic retelling of The Great Gatsby as Gatsby, reimagined "as an LGBTQ-tinged, multicultural thriller for the Internet age"
Jeremy Holt, Felipe Cunha and Dearbhla Kelly graphic retelling of The Great Gatsby as Gatsby, reimagined "as an LGBTQ-tinged, multicultural thriller for the Internet age" was meant to be published last November by AWA and revived considerable publicity from the likes of The Advocate at the time. However all solicited issues of the series were cancelled in favour of an eventual graphic novel instead. Now, in their May 2023 solicits and solicitations, AWA will be publishing the full eight issue series as that complete graphic novel, rather than serialise it, as seen below..
