Andrew J. Rostan has always had an impeccable memory, one that connects facts with key moments and important people in his life. At the young age of 22, this ability landed him a spot on the game show Jeopardy!—an experience that forever changed the way Rostan looked at the world. This November, Rostan and cartoonist Kate Kasenow immortalize that life-changing opportunity in Form of a Question, a graphic novel memoir from BOOM! Studios’ Archaia imprint.
“When BOOM! Studios asked me to tell my story, it was because they were sure they had an important message: that what makes you feel different from others can help you accomplish what you never imagined you could,” Rostan said in a statement. “I’m proud to have written this book; however, what excites me is that Form of a Question is more Kate’s achievement than mine. She combines non-fiction and magical realism to create a vivid, sensual art with emotion filling every panel. Everyone who cares about our medium will be astonished by what Kate has done.”
“There is, quite literally, something for everyone in this book and I should know because I got to draw new and fantastic things with every page!” Kasenow added.
Form of a Question joins Mouse Guard, Rust and the Jim Henson license under BOOM! Studios’ Archaia imprint. The book hits shelves in November, and Paste readers can take an exclusive first look at Kasenow, Jenna Ayoub and Jillian Crab’s cover below.
