Episode 28 - The Dapper Men Cometh

The cast of Beaucoup Pop is back, bringing you everything you need to know about whats going on in the pop culture world...and maybe some things that you didn't need to know, BUT WE GIVE IT TO YOU ANYWAY!!!
Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's 314 Dapper Men!! The cast of Beaucoup Pop welcomes the wonderful and ever charming Janet Lee, who dazzles us from the pages of Return of The Dapper Men and Marvel's Emma.  We discuss everything from her stunning decoupage process to hidden pieces of cat hair in RofDM...that's right. ^_^

Matt and Tressa's copies of RotDM. Arn't the pretty?
Since our main focus is her work on Return of The Dapper Men, which was nominated for 5 Eisners awards and won the 2011 Eisner Award for Best Graphic Album: New, here is a brief synopsis, if you haven't had the opportunity to read this wonderful book:

Return of The Dapper Men is a tale of a world in between time, where children have played so long it’s almost become work, machines have worked so long they have begun to play, and all the clocks have stopped at the same time. This is how this land has remained, until 314 dapper-looking gentlemen rain down from the sky and set off in different directions to start the world again. Now Ayden, the only boy to still ask questions; Zoe, the robot girl all other machines hold dear; and the Dapper Man known only as “41″ must discover what happened that made time stop, understand what their true places are in this world, and learn what “tomorrow” really means.

RotDM's Jim McCann with artist Janet Lee!
Be sure to check out Janet's other work (Etsy Shop link) including the previously mentioned Marvel adaptation of Jane Austen's Emma, the upcoming adaptation Austin's Northanger Abby (hitting shelves November 2011) and the sequel to RotDM, Time of the Dapper Men!! So Grab your bowler hat kiddies it's time for episode 28!!!
