Secret Project One revealed: "Judenhass"

From the desk of Lou Copeland:

Dear friends,

I'm very pleased to announce the details of a project that's been in the making for three years, and is the first major work from the drawing table of Dave Sim since he completed Cerebus four years ago. The project, Judenhass, is a personal reflection on The Holocaust in the form of a 56 page graphic novel. Begun in response to the sixtieth anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz (2005) it will be released during the sixtieth anniversary of the founding of Israel this May.

Over the past two years I've been doing the layout of the 56 page book per Dave's specs, assisting Dave with research, and creating the website with input and content from Dave.

As with Glamourpuss, an advance preview copy will be going out to each retailer account sometime this month. We encourage you to ask your local comic shop retailer to see their copy and to let your interest in Judenhass be known.

In my opinion Judenhass is a powerful, moving, and meaningful experience. I couldn't be prouder of being able to assist one of the persons I admire the most in bringing it into this world.

The comic comes out in May. The website's here right now...
