Press release, with the cover images and more information about the original graphic novel, after the jump.
“THE TROUBLE WITH KATIE ROGERS” GRAPHIC NOVEL. is a “little something for the ladies” from British Illustrator Des Taylor, whose work has already received plaudits from the likes of Louise Redknapp, Denise Richards, Michael Jackson, Geri Halliwell,Â LA designer Jazmin Whitley and celebrity jeweller Theo Fennell, to name a few .Â And now his thousands of followers on Katie Rogerâ€™s official Myspace will get a chance to see his latest character leap of the screen and onto the printed page in the artistsâ€™ first graphic novel. “I wanted to create a female hero, but one that girls could relate to. After putting up Katie’s webstrips online, the response I got from girls was overwhelming. They are the ones that pushed me to make it into a full graphic story.” said creator Des Taylor.
What is The Trouble with Katie Rogers?
Katie Rogers is a beautiful, independent, British born publicist working in New York with some of the cityâ€™s biggest celebrities; A-list parties, award ceremonies, exclusive nightclubs and penthouse dinners are the sort of places her job requires her to be.
But Katie’s personal life isn’t so glamorous. She is a workaholic that is on the brink of losing her boyfriend due to her work load. And her nemesis at work – the evil Crystal Rose – is out to make Katieâ€™s life a misery every time she goes into the office.
The Trouble with Katie Rogers has the high speed antics of a romcom, all the fun and action of a traditional Graphic Novel, with short stories & anecdotes that reveal Katieâ€™s outlook of her love of New York, clothes, and the perils of being a woman of the 21st century.
Katie Rogers is forÂ women who want a little lighter reading with their bookstore coffee, for girls who might not have thought there was anything in a traditional comic store for them, and for boys who feel a little bit guilty for spending the whole day in the comic store instead of with their girl, but have left it too late to run to the florist!
