Luis Royo's Dead Moon

Artist rep Alan Lynch stopped by the office the other and showed me an early copy of Luis Royo's new book, Dead Moon. This is a thick and beautifully printed book, written and illustrated by Royo. He took a substantial amount of time putting this together and it shows. It's a stunning collection of paintings -- large scale epic works, loose intimate portraits, and everything in between. Check out this fifteen minute video for a preview of the art and interview with the artist/writer.

The edition I saw was in Spanish but an English language edition will be available soon. If you're at San Diego ComicCon, Royo will be signing copies at the Heavy Metal booth.

Brilliant Royo has long been a favorite of mine its good to hear him and see him in his own words. Great score Irene!

Brilliant art, but did he really say "ARYAN" and mean a European appearance? He is not a historian, I know, but this term is so completely wrong (since actually the term "Aryan" when used for Europeans is a Nazi invention and commonly only used by Nazis). I guess he didn't know that, but it's... somehow weird.
