Dapper Men Comes Back to Print From Top Shelf

Top Shelf Acquires Return of the Dapper Men

Return of the Dapper Men was an attractive, fairy-tale-like graphic novel by Jim McCann and Janet Lee published in late 2010 by Archaia (before they were acquired by Boom!). It won the 2011 Eisner Award for Best Graphic Album — New but apparently went out of print somewhere along the way. Top Shelf (who is now part of IDW) has just announced that they will be republishing the book next year.

Top Shelf Acquires Return of the Dapper Men

Here’s the book description:

Welcome to Anorev, a land where time has no meaning. Robots work and children play, but the play is no fun and the work is no use. A curious boy named Ayden and his robot friend Zoe know that something’s missing, but they can’t imagine what it might be… until 314 identical men in green bowler hats fall from the sky. At last, our heroes have a chance to discover what happened to their world, what might start the clocks back up again, and what tomorrow really means.

But wait! There’s more! Along with the reprint comes a sequel. Time of the Dapper Men will be released in summer 2018, with a final book, making a trilogy, coming later in the future.
