Comedy, emotion, and cartooning collide in Get Naked

Image Comics has announced an original graphic novel of sequential essays in Get Naked, written by Steven T. Seagle—with artwork by Emei Olivia Burell, Tina Burholt, Patricia Amalie Eckerle, Christoffer Hammer, Andrada-Aurora Hansen, Rebekka Davidsen Hestbæk, Hope Hjort, Angelica Inigo Jørgensen, Bob Lundgreen Kristiansen, Silja Lin, Sim Mau, Ingvild Marie Methi, Thorbjørn Petersen, Aske Schmidt Rose, Erlend Hjortland Sandøy, Mads Ellegård Skovbakke, Cecilie “Q” Maintz Thorsen, Fred Tornager, and Thomas Vium—is set to hit store February 2018.

In the spirit of essayist David Sedaris and monologist Spalding Grey, Seagle and 19 emerging global cartoonists take drawn storytelling into the world of the “graphic essay,” in the upcoming Get Naked ogn. Nineteen stories of global attitudes about the naked body balance raw comedy, raw emotions, and raw cartooning. Seagle honestly chronicles his place as an undressed, metaphorical, fish-out-of-water on different continents—from not recognizing a famous naked celeb in Hollywood to being naked and eaten by actual fish in Tokyo.

Get Naked OGN (ISBN: 978-1-5343-0480-2, Diamond Code NOV170679) hits comic book stores on Wednesday, February 7th and bookstores on Tuesday, February 13th. The final order cutoff for retailers is Monday, December 18th.
