D+Q and Dan Clowes

Comics Reporter and the D+Q blog announce a great coup: Drawn + Quarterly has acquired the publishing rights to Daniel Clowes’ next graphic novel, Wilson.

D+Q, the three time winner of the Joe Shuster Award for Outstanding Publisher, has added another great talent to the publishing line-up

D+Q provided a statement from its publisher and editor-in-chief, Chris Oliveros: “As a long-time fan of Eightball, it is thrilling to be able to publish Dan … Wilson is signature Clowes as the cartooning is seamless. It is funny, poignant and leaves an indelible impression on the reader.”

Wilson is slated for a May 2010 release.

Raincoast Books, and surely Diamond Comics, will distribute the work.
