Last Friday Vertigo announced Gone To Amerikay, a new original graphic novel written by Derek McCulloch (Stagger Lee) with art by Colleen Doran (A Distant Soil, Orbiter, Sandman). Although the project is still in the early stages, Doran sent over some of her early artwork for the project.

“Derek is writing one of the best scripts I have ever read in my life,” Doran said. “We spent the day on Thursday in NYC taking reference photos and running about doing research, but I can’t really talk about it very much. DC is keeping it all very close, I think. The book will be out sometime next year. I guess it’s setting us up to say how good the story is, because people are going to expect the moon, but I have the feeling Derek can deliver the moon.”

The one up top was shown at the Vertigo panel at the New York Comic Con; check out additional artwork that wasn’t shown after the jump …

Lovely stuff. I don’t know Derek McCulloch but, if Doran’s art is any indication, it looks like a lot of time/attention/love is going into this project. I look forward to it.
