The story behind one of modern film’s most recognizable directors is being told in graphic novel form. Quentin By Tarantino from creator Améziane Amazing will explore the twists and turns of his groundbreaking career.
Starting with his beginnings as a video store clerk, the graphic novel will trace his path to indie blockbusters of the 1990s and international stardom. The story follows his journey from early cult hits like Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction all the way to 2019’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. It dives into the fame that came with his signature style, lengthy dialogue, pop culture references, and affinity for kung fu flicks and spaghetti Westerns.
“Quentin Tarantino is arguably the last great celebrity director, a creator who’s almost as recognizable as the hugely influential and iconic pop culture moments that he’s brought to movie screens over the past four decades,” Titan’s Head of Creative & Business Development Duncan Baizley said. “His movies are love letters to the genres, directors, and stars, as well as the books and comics he grew up with. So, it seemed perfect that writer, artist, and Tarantino aficionado, Amazing Améziane, should be the one to capture this singular career’s stylistic shifts and evolution almost as Q.T. himself would probably shoot it – with flair, wit and some damn unforgettable dialogue. I think Quentin would approve.”
Quentin by Tarantino will be in comic shops on October 17, 2023.
