Airboy Soars in Deluxe Hardcover


Airboy is a pretty raunchy look at a unique character. Image Comics wants to get more people on board with the work by James Robinson and Greg Hinkle, offering up the Airboy Deluxe Hardcover to comic book stores on April 27 and bookstores on May 3. Airboy Deluxe Hardcover (ISBN 9781632155436) and will be available for $24.99. It can be ordered by Diamond Book Distributors with Diamond code FEB160620.

“This is me looking back at a dark time in my life...and making light of it,” said Robinson. “And like all satire, I leave it to the reader to decide what happened and what didn't.”

Added Hinkle: "As a reader, I always enjoy bonus material, so I'm really excited to share some more process pages, preliminary work, and even a little sample of how our collaboration worked."

“Profane, disgusting and utterly brilliant.”Jeff Lemire

Shades of Hunter S. Thompson color AIRBOY, starring acclaimed author James Robinson (StarmanFantastic Four) and artist Greg Hinkle (THE RATTLER) as they attempt to reboot the Golden Age hero. When the actual Airboy suddenly shows up after a boy's night out of debauchery, a hangover becomes the least of their trouble.

“This is me looking back at a dark time in my life...and making light of it,” said Robinson. “And like all satire, I leave it to the reader to decide what happened and what didn't.”

Praise for AIRBOY:

Airboy is the best thing James Robinson has ever done, thanks in no small part to the outstanding artwork of Greg Hinkle. As insanely imaginative as it is cringe-inducingly honest, this is mandatory reading.”—Brian K. Vaughan

“Self-examination via public domain extra-dimensional mashup. Searingly honest and wildly funny, with a dark but mighty heart.”—Darwyn Cooke

Airboy is the kind of comic book that keeps me reading comic books. Inventive, confessional, fun and full of character…a fearless experiment that is refreshing and purely entertaining.”—Rick Remender
