Announcing Templar


I’m excited to announce that my original graphic novel Templar will be published in July in its entirety as a 480-page, full-color hardcover from First Second. (Book one of the saga was previously published in 2010 as an individual paperback, Solomon’s Thieves.)

It’s a hefty tome. Artists LeUyen Pham and Alex Puvilland have outdone themselves, evoking 14th-century Paris with all the action, humor, and depth a writer could hope for. I’m immensely proud of this book, and I can’t wait for you to discover it.

Templar will ship on July 9, 2013. You can pre-order it from Amazon here.

    No comments? Really? Everybody is on social networks and good old web is abandoned… Graphic novels are great, I am really looking forward to reading Templar, pretty sure it will be great. I have just finished Czech edition of Blacksad and now am reading Incal.

    I’m glad to see this finished.
    I really hope Mr Mechner will come back and create some solid Prince of Persia game now to end this ‘in-between-game’ phase. Or some epic POP-themed novel, at least :D
