[quote] What if we found a cure for death?

Two of comics’ most acclaimed creators, SCOTT SNYDER (WYTCHES, Batman, American Vampire) and JEFF LEMIRE (DESCENDER, Moon Knight, Sweet Tooth) unite to create a three-part epic like no other, set in a future where a genetic cure for death has been found. Years after the discovery, one man starts to question everything, leading him on a mind-bending journey that will bring him face-to-face with his past and his own mortality. A unique combination of comics, prose, and illustration, A.D.: AFTER DEATH will be serialized monthly as three oversized prestige format books written by SNYDER and fully painted by LEMIRE.[/quote]

[quote] It’s more autobiographical and more intimate, especially in the ways it explores my concerns, and paranoia really, about how quickly life goes. There’s the fear of sickness and the fear of death that can maybe make us all a little myopic. But it also has this element of taking the reader 800 years into the future that’s completely blended with all of these ideas.

And Jeff’s just the perfect artist to take on all of this. His artwork is so emotionally wrought that it’s almost trembling with feeling. There’s a sadness there that makes it almost hyperreal and saturated. And there’s an almost artistic element to the page composition as well. Some pages may only have a few spot illustrations whereas others are going to be more densely prose. For the prose, it just punctuates or emphasizes those emotional elements so that when you get to the comics, it won’t feel as jarring. Again, it feels fluid as you experience the emotional current running through it.

It’s something new for me, and I had a near-breakdown while doing it asking myself why I was doing it and questioning what it was. And I showed it to some friends, and they felt it was the best thing I’d done.[/quote]

[quote] When we originally started working on A.D.: After Death, it was actually just a short story. But the intention was, like, a 20-30 page short story. It was much more of a streamlined, sci-fi, high-octane story. A little more genre.

I was just going to draw it and Scott was going to write it. And we were going to put it out as a 20-page one-shot as a fun side project.

But when we actually sat down and started working on the story, it took on a life of its own and grew in scope and ambition. And it became much bigger.

So we were thinking we’d do a 150-page graphic novel. One big book. That’s kind of how we proceeded for the last year and a half or so.

And then about six months ago, we got deeper into it, and it just became obvious that the story had these three natural break points.

There’s three arcs, or chapters. And we realized, well, why don’t we serialize them and put them out in three sections?

The new structure that gave us really helped us solve some of the story problems we were encountering. So it just clicked together.[/quote]
