CRIMINAL colorist and first time solo artist JACOB PHILLIPS and writer CHRIS CONDON break onto the scene with a brand-new ongoing series! Like Paris, Texas gut-punched by No Country for Old Men, this mature neo-Western crime series kicks off when the search for a casserole dish leads to a dark and tense confrontation on Sheriff Joe Bob Coates’ 70th birthday.
“CHRIS & JACOB pull off something remarkable here. A vivid and bright story that nails a thorough sense of foreboding and darkness. A shocking amount of talent for a duo so fresh to comics!” —CHIP ZDARSKY (SEX CRIMINALS, Daredevil)
If you’re a comics fan, you’ve probably already heard the hype on just how good That Texas Blood #1 is. Believe it.
A synopsis of the issue wouldn’t do it justice. Most folks would read it and say, “Not much happens.” They’d be wrong. Condon and Phillips lull us with a pace that mirrors small town life. All is well, until it isn’t and then things go bad in a hurry. Now we’re left with a questions about a suicide, a possible murder and a sinister (Satanic?) killing from the past.
That Texas Blood #2 can’t get here fast enough.
