“Return of the Dapper Men” a quick sellout for Archaia; second print coming
Archaia has announced that Jim McCann and Janet Lee’s “Return of the Dapper Men” has sold out of its 10,000 copy initial printing at the distributor level, less than 24 hours after release.
Archaia is rushing a second printing to press.
“Reaction to the book has been just incredible, to say the very least,” said writer Jim McCann in a news release. “Janet and I are absolutely blown away and extremely humbled by the outpouring of support.”
Archaia describes the book as follows:
A modern twist on classic fairytales, this is a story about growing up, childhood fears and examining the origins of a world and the things that inhabit it. The incredible decoupage art style combines steampunk fantasy and science fiction with Art Nouveau for a truly unique and groundbreaking book, all sharply dressed in a pinstripe suit and a dapper bowler hat. The book also features a Foreword written by the original Dapper Man, Tim Gunn (“Project
Runway”), and a collection of pin-ups featuring works by Adrian Alphona and Christina Strain, Joyce
Chin, John Tyler Christopher, Katie Cook, Colleen Coover, David Mack, Dave Perillo, Mike Perkins,
Evan Shaner, Mark Smylie, Tom Whalen and Skottie Young.
