- Casanova Quinn, interdimensional superspy and assassin, has crashlanded here on Earth — on OUR Earth — with absolutely no memory of who he is or the things he's done. He works for a man with just as mysterious a past as his own and has found the New Normal of his life under the name "Quentin Cassaday."
That's when the end of the world begins. With nine days to a supposed apocalypse, Los Angeles simmers in fear as a weird cult readies itself for what comes next...and what comes next runs straight through Casanova Quinn.
- By Eisner-award winning writer Matt Fraction (Sex Criminals,
ODY-C) with art by international superstar Fábio Moon (Two
Brothers, Daytripper), this volume also features exclusive back-up stories written by Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Michael Chabon and drawn by

Casanova: Acedia, Volume 1 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
A tale of two amnesiacs Quentin Cassaday aka Casanova Quinn works for Amiel Boutique, another man whose has lost the memory of his past. Strange “people” called Fabula have the answers as does Sasa Lisi who may be Amiel’s daughter. There seems to be a large amount of organisations with acronyms: N.E.T.W.O.R.K, E.M.P.I.R.E., A.C.A.D.E.M.Y., etc.., the majority of which appear in the comic-within-a-comic, the Metanauts. Quite confusing in places (especially with unexplained flashbacks), it is quite engaging; some sex and violence. I prefer my comics more straight-forward
