ATTICA graphic Novel

Yesterday (september 13) was the 46th anniversary of the UPRISING OF ATTICA.
For few months, i've worked (among many others things) on a graphic novel retelling what really happened in ATTICA. The Writer JARED REINMUTH has wrote a screenplay with FRANK -BIG BLACK - SMITH (you can't missed him, it's the BIG MAN "BB" on the famous shot of the ATTICA).

BIG BLACK was an inmate and the head of security during the UPRISING, he was also brutally tortured by the guards and state troopers in the aftermath of the attack. After he finished his time he still had a beef with Govenor Rockefeller and he sued. That trial took almost three decades, but he had the neck of Rockefeller, first, and he ruined his chances of getting elected POTUS.

But the movie was never made. And this great story HAD to be told, and i was asked to make it in flat pictures in a fat book. My job was to make it, as good, or even better than the MUHAMMAD ALI biopic i did with Sybille Titeux De La Croix.

I fell in love for this story, the theme first stroke me, but also the beauty of the words. Why use 10 words when you can use the right one, right away. The script was tight and beautiful. Right now we are almost at the half of this 120 to 130 pages graphic novel and it will be finished before the end of 2017.
We don't have an editor yet, but we are confident in the quality of our book. And this story had to be told. I will show you few pages and post some news about it... on a regular basis.

The title of the book is "BIG BLACK : STAND AT ATTICA"
