Sneek peek at Jeff Smith's sci-fi noir graphic novel, RASL

Cartoon Books is publishing a full-color collection of Jeff Smith's RASL comic book series as a 472 page hardcover graphic novel this fall.

When Rasl, a thief and ex-military engineer, discovers the lost journals of Nikola Tesla, he bridges the gap between modern physics and history's most notorious scientist. But his breakthrough comes at a price. In this twisting tale of violence, intrigue, and betrayal, Rasl finds himself in possession of humankind's greatest and most dangerous secret.

New York Times Bestselling author Jeff Smith's follow up to his epic fantasy BONE, is a gritty, hard-boiled tale of an inter-dimensional art thief caught between dark government forces and the mysterious powers of the universe itself.

  1. I already have all four of the giant-size softcover B&W collections, so I’m not sure if a probably-smaller color hardcover is an upgrade or not for me.

    But if you don’t have any of it, this is well worth your time.

  2. It’s ironic that you put “sneek peek” instead of “sneak peek” and then posted this a couple of hours later: :)
