  1. Missed this the first go around and am very excited to read it! Plus I love the twin’s work.

  2. Funny how I really don’t like Matt Fraction but I LOVE Ba and Moon. This is going to be interesting.

  3. I read the first issue on image’s website a while a go and did not understand so I’ll have another go this time round

  4. @OnASunday – If you don’t like Fraction’s work, I’m almost positive you will not enjoy this book. This is as Fractiony as it gets.

  5. Define "Fractiony"?? I jumped on Uncanny when he started and was rather bored after 15 issues, haven’t read his Iron Man… but am desperately waiting for him to kick some life back into Thor. What exactly does he bring to the table with this book?

  6. Is this the same story as the first series?

  7. @drakedangerz – You never know. Casanova is the only work of Fraction that I really enjoyed so far.

  8. The impression the solicit gives is that this is a reprint of earlier published material, redone, with some bonus material and NOT a brand new chapter in Casanova (whatever that would be). Having never seen any of it, I am on board either way, but if this is a brand new story they really blew the solicitation.

  9. He discussed it on don’t miss, this is the same material recolored and hand lettered (sweet!) with some bonus stuff once the old stuff has been published they will be doing new stuff

  10. For those unsure: This is a fully-coloured, relettered ‘reprint’ of the first issue of Casanova (Image 2006) with a NEW back-up story drawn by Fabio Moon. It is c. 32 pages of story content. I cannot recommend it highly enough; for those who have never tried CASANOVA I urge you to at least try this first issue!

  11. The Don’t Miss podcast has a strange power over me. I inevitably pick up almost every book they cover.

  12. @theevilconroy same here brother, same here

  13. This is not a comic you casually read – you really need to pay attention (it is ‘dizzyingly’ good!)

  14. these reprints are going to be jam-packed!  If you didn’t read this series the first time around, keep in mind that these reprints are combining two 16-page issues into one(+ bonus material).  I am looking forward to revisiting this series with all of its remastered glory!  Casanova demands to be re-read!

    @milez42 – To me, ‘Fractiony’ means that it would be ultra dense with lots of random twists and turns, lots of tech/espianage jargon, and fleeting pop culture/Hip culture references that you might not pick up on right away.

  15. Man, I’m finding this really hard to get into. I read til half way through then put it down. I don’t find it an easy read. *confused brain*

  16. I found this book to be somewhat similar to Cowboy Ninja Viking, which is equally difficult to understand at first.  All in all, I must say Casasnova is a slice of deep fried gold!  Ba and Moon have a style I really like, but because I found Daytripper kinda boring I couldn’t justify getting it.  Now I can get my Brazillian art twin fix with these sweet reprints that I’ve never seen before.  Ah hell, there goes another 4 bucks a month. 

  17. Even if you have no idea what’s going on, you have to admit that it’s fun going along for the ride… that’s how I see it. I fucking love this book.

  18. I really liked this. It looks like Umbrella Academy and the tone is similar but just way wackier. I’m very interested to see where it goes.

  19. I picked up this issue to see if I would be interested in a trade paperback somewhere down the line.
    Now im on the fence about following it in issues.
    Considering this is a $3.99 book, that is quite impressive.

  20. I’m going to get the next issue, but I don’t know… it was a struggle at times.

    Was the original run in a different size format? Every page seems incredibly squashed. To compound this the narrative moves like a family guy episode, that is very quickly and almost arbitrarily moving from one scene to the next. 

    And it all just seems too self-consciously "cool" (and completely empty on every level). 

  21. Sorry. 🙁 

    I read it again, at a time when I wasn’t completely hung over and was bowled away. Sure, it has problems, but it’s really fantastic. The energy and imagination propel you forward. Comparisons to Luther Arkwright aren’t unjustified. 

  22. LOVE.
