Releases do Neorama reports that Jamie Delano‘s complete Outlaw Nation, which the British author describes as “my shot at a big, sprawling ‘American Adventure Story'”, first published by Vertigo in 2001 and 2002, will be published in November, in a black and white edition.
In Outlaw Nation, Story Johnson, a hundred-year-old semi-deranged amnesiac pulp fiction-writer returns home from 25 years MIA in Vietnam. All Story wants is to recover his missing time and catch up with some legendary, larger-than-life Johnson Family members. Trouble is, a lot of cousins have “disappeared,” and those that are left have put the blame on him.
Delano reckons the work is some of the best of his career, with art by Goran Sudzuka and Goran Parlov. “It certainly looks damn good, especially in this black-and-white edition,” says Delano. “I hope any new readers who pick it up have will have half as much enjoyment in reading it as I had in its writing.”
