THE NEW BOOK FROM THE AUTHOR OF BoTToMLEss BELLY BUTToN
One part MOME collection, one part authorized IFC Channel spinoff, the first quarter of this jacketed hardcover will collect the work - storyboards, scripts, character designs, etc. - that Shaw has created for a series of original
shorts to begin airing on IFC in Nov. 2009. The latter 3/4ths will collect his
acclaimed short stories from MOME, as well as several little-seen stories from elsewhere, and a new 20 page story.
The Unclothed Man in the 35th Century A.d. is Shaw's first book since his breakthrough graphic novel of 2008, Bottomless Belly Button, which was named Publishers Weekly's best graphic novel of 2008, one of Entertainment Weekly's top ten books of 2008, and one of Amazon.com's top ten graphic
novels of the year, amongst numerous other accolades. The book also collects Shaw's acclaimed, genre-bending short stories from MOME, including "Look Forward, First
Son of Terra Two," a remarkable story of two lovers traveling in opposite directions... in time. Also featured: "Galactic
Funnels," the 2008 Ignatz Award nominee for "Outstanding Story," about the parasitic relationship between an artist and his lover/mentor; "Satellite CMYK," a sci-fi mindwarp that ingeniously drives the narrative through Shaw's masterful control of color, and "Making the Abyss," a fictionalized story of a surreal film set filled with nuclear tanks, hot tubs, and blind ambition.
