"Flash" Writers, Teddy Sears Race Down Burning Questions From "Flash of Two Worlds"
Announced this morning on his blog, this hardcover has been serialized for years in the Mome anthology and centers on a young retail worker named Amy who becomes engrossed with a cartoon show called Mr. Dangerous.
In an interview last fall with the website New City Lit, Hornschemeier said he “wanted to write a story about that strange time between your early twenties and whatever adulthood is supposed to be. When you’ve embraced reality by getting a job, renting an apartment, getting a cat or a dog or a car or a fern — but you don’t really know who you are yet.”
In addition to the standard 140-page hardcover Villard also will release two special editions: The Limited Edition ($75) will contain a four-color silkscreened dust jacket, a signed original sketch and be limited to 75 copies. The Ultra Limited Edition ($400) will contain an 14″ x 17″ original page of artwork from the book, a hand-sculpted figure of a character from by the book by the artist, and everything from the Limited Edition package. This latter package is limited to 16. It’s first-come, first-serve, and Hornschemeier is taking advance orders now at his store.
