Adult coloring books are more popular than ever (I’m not sure if they were ever popular before, but they are now).
Following this trend, with a notable twist, Dark Horse Comics announced today that they will be releasing Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk’s first coloring book novella entitled Legacy: An Off-Color Novella for You to Color.
According to the author, the combination novella and coloring book is as “…if Joseph Campbell produced a coloring book.” He went on to say that the “Legacy will be one part Art Bell, one part Carl Jung, part George Noory, and right brain from cover to cover. All cultures have their myths about attaining immortality, but Dark Horse, Mike, Steve and I are the first to slap such high culture anthropology into the low culture world of coloring.”
Legacy will feature artwork “for you to color” by “Mike Norton, the creator of the Eisner and Harvey Award-winning webcomic Battlepug, and Steve Morris, who’s best known for his art for Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic books.”
This isn’t Palahniuk’s first foray into the world of coloring books. In October of 2016, Dark Horse released Bait: Off-Color Stories for You to Color which also happened to be Palahniuk’s second short story collection (after 2015’s Make Something Up).
Legacy will be available in finer book stores and comic book shops on November 7, 2017.
