Dark Horse will publish a hardcover collection of Cameron Stewart’s Eisner Award-winning webcomic Sin Titulo next year. The neo-noir mystery thriller, which debuted in 2007 as part of the Transmission X comics collective, concluded just last week.
“Many people have opined that I should have gone through Kickstarter rather than a publisher, but I actually agreed to publish through Dark Horse a couple of years ago, before Kickstarter had shown itself to be a viable means of funding,” Stewart explained on the comic’s website. “From my conversations with Dark Horse it’s clear that they really love the story and will do their utmost to produce a beautiful, high quality book. I think Kickstarter is for the most part a great means of funding projects, and I may still use it in the future for another comic, but for now I am very comfortable and confident that Dark Horse is the best home for Sin Titulo.”
He noted that he’ll make revisions for the landscape-format edition, “mainly tidying up lettering and colour, so that it looks its best in print.” The cover price hasn’t been determined.
Cameron Stewart has been on a roll as of late, becoming one of the key artists in Grant Morrison’s Batman stories as well as a go-to guy for licensed titles like IDW’s Suicide Girls and the upcoming Assassin’s Creed graphic novel. Between all that, however, Stewart has found some free time to recommit to his Eisner-winning webcomic Sin Titulo.
With one reviewer describing Sin Titulo as “out-Lynching David Lynch,” the enterprising series is a study in pacing and mood that is good in daily installments or saved up for marathon reading sessions every couple months (that’s me, at least). Stewart has already posted two new pages this week, with a plan to do three or four each week until the end of the series. Stewart has plans to release Sin Titulo as a print book in 2012, so even if you’re not the type to read comics online then you’ve got reasons to look out for Cameron Stewart.
