Image Comics' Casanova may just be one of the greatest comic books of all time, a fact I can probably prove with graphs and charts given enough time to prepare. Suffice to say that the book — ostensibly about Casanova Quinn, a super-spy kidnapped by his dead sister into a parallel dimension where she lives and he's dead — is unlike anything else around right now. We spoke with writer Matt Fraction to find out where the series had come from, what it all means, and what television show he'd revamp given the choice. Warning: Spoilers ahead. Also, people who don't want to see me being called a dick should not read any further.
Elsewhere on io9 I described Casanova like this: "Every science-fiction super-spy idea gets mixed up in this story that shows what happens when the black sheep of a spy family gets stolen into an alternate dimension where he's the white sheep for a change. Sexy robot girls! Floating heads that are scientific genuises! Incest! Catatonic mothers! It's all here, friends."
