Welcome to Anoreve, a world in between time, where children have played so long it’s almost become work, machines have worked so long they have begun to play and all the clocks have stopped at the same time. This is how this land has remained, until 314 dapper-looking gentlemen rain down from the sky and set off in different directions to start the world again. Now Ayden, the only boy to still ask questions; Zoe, the robot girl all other machines hold dear; and the Dapper Man known only as ’41’ must discover what happened that made time stop, understand what their true places are in this world, and learn what ‘tomorrow’ really means. The sun is setting for the first time in memory, and once that happens, everything changes.

  1. No where has this as coming out this week except for here that I can see.

  2. My 2 1/2 year niece this for christmas. i’m not going to read it – because i’m an adult 

  3. @youngneil- Diamond is distributing it to comic shops this week.  that’s where iFanboy gets this list from.

  4. @Edward- like the original texts of Peter Pan & the Alice books, this is something for adults to get a different meaning from than kids.  It’s for both to read and enjoy for different reasons.  Plus, the art is so pretty!  🙂

     As for shipping- Diamond tells me that it’s on the trucks.  I’m holding my breath…there’s already been 2 Amazon screw-ups, but we’ll see.  It should hit everywhere this week.  If there are any stores left out it’ll be few & far between…or because they didn’t order enough copies.

  5. Oh, and THANK YOU to all who are pulling the book!  I think when you see it, you’ll be surprised.  *I* still can’t get over how the book looks, feels, even smells!  Archaia spared no expence and it shows in this beautiful package.

  6. @JimMcCann – great interview/talksplode with you and Josh solidified my decision to pick this book up, really looking forward to reading it

  7. @Jim: dude, i’m getting already. what else do you want ? 

  8. @edward – a hug?  🙂

  9. I think I’m going to have to finish the book this week.  I got it at NYCC (signed by Jim and Janet!), but it’s been sitting unread in my stack.  the parts I have read are great!

  10. @Edward – embrace the hug. It’s not lame.  It’s an acceptable sign of greeting, affection, congratulations, farewell, and so many other meanings.  Unless you are terrified of germs, in which case, don’t hug weird people on the subway.  Aside from that, there’s no need to fear human contact. 

    If you still can’t, though, you can hug a kitty.  That’s more manly, right?

  11. in addition to works that are considered traditionally for kids such as Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland, I think it feels similar to Fritz Lang’s Metropolis.

  12. NAH.
