Slave Labor Graphics has announced the upcoming release of White Night from artist Kevin Sacco.
Set in the advertising world in 1960 Manhattan, White Night tells the story of Zeppo Abandando, an advertising copyrighter searching for his EUREKA moment. White Night tells the story of this search, and in the process, Sacco reveals a loving portrait of Zeppo’s world-at home, on Madison avenue, and at Harold’s Showspot, his favorite bar.
According to the publisher, White Night is a mix of fiction and biography as Sacco pays homage to his father Joe Sacco.
“My father believed in the “Eureka.” explained Sacco, defining it as “The moment arrived at after copious research and brainstorming. This story is my guess about one of his “eureka” moments. I’ve changed his name in this story to Zeppo Abandando to pay homage to the protagonist of his never published novel“ two cents cheaper. Readers of a certain age will recognize the ad campaign that Sacco’s father was working on.
White Knight has an October 2019 release date.
