Image Comics announced a new original graphic novel coming in February from writer Steven T. Seagle and a bevy of cartoonists including Emei Olivia Burell, Tina Burholt, Patricia Amalie Eckerle, Christoffer Hammer, Andrada-Aurora Hansen, Rebekka Davidsen Hestbæk, Hope Hjort, Angelica Inigo Jørgensen, Bob Lundgreen Kristiansen, Silja Lin, Sim Mau, Ingvild Marie Methi, Thorbjørn Petersen, Aske Schmidt Rose, Erlend Hjortland Sandøy, Mads Ellegård Skovbakke, Cecilie "Q" Maintz Thorsen, Fred Tornager, and Thomas Vium.

Called Get Naked, the new book promises to "take drawn storytelling into the world of the graphic essay." What is a "graphic essay," you ask, and what's this all about? Seagle explains in the press release:

"For most of my life I had massive reservations about getting naked. But the more I traveled the world, and found myself in uncomfortable situations, the more it became obvious that the American anxiety of 'I'm not taking my clothes off in front of anyone else unless it's to have sex with them' is unique—and not in a good way—to the US. I started looking into the history of nakedness and thinking about why we're so uncomfortable with bodies in this country—with me as a lens for that. Comedic essays seemed like the right way to chronicle what I realized, and graphic essays felt like a great new kind of visual challenge for challenging subject matter—nakedness—both physical and emotional."

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
