Every year seems to bring an eagerly awaited, long brewing graphic novel by an industry master — and in 2015 that book looks to be Scott McCloud’s The Sculptor, which has been in the works for years and years. It’s currently slated to be released in February, and USA Today has the first look at the cover as well as some chat from McCloud on the subject matter:

Arriving in February, The Sculptor (First Second Books) stars a once-promising artist named David, who’s already washed up at 25. He makes a deal with Death to be remembered, and David’s given 200 days of being able to sculpt anything with his bare hands.

However, he then tumbles headlong into a romance forcing him to question what he wants from his life as well as his art.

“It’s big, loud and operatic at times, but also grounded in a lot of small, funny, human moments,” McCloud says. “Most of all, I just want it to be an engrossing read — a page-turner from beginning to end.”

  1. Been looking forward to this for ages. I love McCloud’s non-fic but I’ve been waiting to see him return to fiction.

    i might just be because i’m so used to seeing McCloud’s stuff in black and white, but i’m surprised by how much i dont like the coloring in the image above.
    looks uninspired
    like a big two house job ten years ago.

  3. I think the coloring on this image looks great!
