THE SLEEPER OMNIBUS debuts at #1 on THE NEW YORK TIMES’ Hardcover Graphic Books Best Sellers List


By Alex Nagorski Friday, March 15th, 2013

Earlier today, THE NEW YORK TIMES published their Graphic Books Best Sellers lists and debuting at #1 on the Hardcover list was THE SLEEPER OMNIBUS!

From the Eisner-Award winning creative team of Ed Brubaker (GOTHAM CENTRAL, BATMAN) and artist Sean Phillips (HELLBLAZER) comes the saga of a reluctant double agent torn between his original mission and new loyalties towards the cabal he has infiltrated.

SLEEPER tells the story of Holden Carver, a double agent without hope of rescue. Tao, the criminal mastermind whose organization Carver has infiltrated, had Carver’s only lifeline, spymaster John Lynch, shot, leaving him in a coma. Now that Tao has cut off every means of escape, he will try to persuade Carver to join him…for real this time.

Collecting the complete saga, with additional art by Colin Wilson and Jim Lee, the omnibus also includes a bonus section filled with sketches and variant covers.
