“To think after 20 years that I would be returning to TRANSIT is almost abstractly absurd,” said McKeever in a prepared statement. “TRANSIT had become my personal holy grail, but now, with this collected hardcover edition, I can roam free of it’s gaping wailing and allow it to scab over while I move on to new roads.”
Following Transit, Shadowline will release Eddy Current and Metropol.
Each edition will feature the definitive versions of McKeever’s vision, including all the original covers, unused art and TRANSIT’s never-before-seen ending. These graphic novels consist of McKeever’s inter-connected magnum opus in his world of tomorrow – from industrial wastelands torn by war, cities on the verge of self-destruction and one of the most twisted takes on superheroics to ever grace the comics medium.
The hardcover edition will arrive on October 1, 2008 for $24.99.
