Dave McKean to Create a Biographical Paul Nash Graphic Novel

By Maryann Yin Comment

Black Dog Cover (GalleyCat)Dave McKean has signed a deal with Dark Horse Comics. He plans to work on a new graphic novel called Black Dog: The Dreams of Paul Nash.

This book will profile the life of the British surrealist artist, Paul Nash. The publication date has been set for Oct. 5.

Here’s more from the press release: “Black Dog takes biographical moments from Paul Nash’s life and explorations of his work, writing, and imagination and mixes them with firsthand accounts of the First World War. Presented as a series of surreal dreams, the stories add up to a moving piece about how war and extreme situations change us and how we deal with the resulting pain—in Nash’s case, by turning landscapes into powerful and fantastical ‘psychoscapes.'”
