All Ages Graphic Novel GEAR Will Have a Second Printing

Posted by at 1:05 pm on April 30, 2018

Writer/artist Doug TenNapel (CREATURE TECH, Ghostopolis, Cardboard) and colorist Katherine Garner (Ghostopolis, Nnewts, Tommysaurus Rex) will release a new printing of the full-color graphic novel GEAR this July—just in time for its 20th anniversary, Image Comics has announced.

Four incompetent cats hijack a giant killer robot to change the course of a war between cats, dogs, and insects. But while these three species fight for control of the world, a powerful mechanical being named GEAR arrives to risk his own life to save the lives of good cats.

“GEAR was the first graphic novel I ever made, and it’s why I fell in love with the medium,” said TenNapel. “Now with 17 graphic novels under my belt, I’ve yet to capture the raw energy of GEAR in another title. I was on fire back then, and GEAR is still on fire!”

“GEAR was the first of Doug’s comic books I read, back when it was published in black and white,” said Garner. “I became a fan of his comic books because of it and never expected to be coloring them in.”

This 20th anniversary edition has it all: an action-packed story with robots, harpoon guns, talking cats, mantis kung fu—plus pin-up art by Rob Schrab and Mike Mignola! GEAR hits comic book shops Wednesday, July 11th.
