Blacking Out by by Chip Mosher, Peter Krause, Giulia Brusco & Ed Dukeshire is Coming!

Blacking Out by by Chip Mosher (writer), Peter Krause (pencils/inks), Giulia Brusco (colors), Ed Dukeshire (letters) is going to hit all the sweet spots for lovers of crime fiction, mysteries and graphic novels.  Here’s the goods…

Bad people doing bad things in a tale of fire and murder in Southern California.

A disgraced ex-cop, Conrad, seeks redemption by unraveling an unsolved murder during Southern California’s fire season. Conrad follows a lone clue—a discarded crucifix—to unravel the death of Karen Littleton, whose body was found amid a blaze that scorched 10,000 acres. The search leads him to clash with the victim’s father and prime suspect, Robert Littleton, as well as hostile former colleagues on the local police force. All the while, Conrad combats his consuming alcoholism and fading faculties.

Will his “questionable” methods net him a murderer, or will the grizzled detective be brought to his knees by heartbreak and addiction? Find out, in this all-new edition of Blacking Out, a scorching crime noir comic set in a small town in the dry California desert.

From the minds of comics industry veteran and writer Chip Mosher (Left On Mission) and legendary artist Peter Krause (The Power of Shazam!, Irredeemable) with colors by the amazing Giulia Brusco (Scalped, Django Unchained), and letterers from Ed Dukeshire (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Basilisk)

Blacking Out hits on October 1, 2024.

When Death Came for Frank Miller by Anthony Breznican for Vanity Fair!

Anthony Breznican at Vanity Fair recently sat down with Frank Miller for an no-holds-barred interview.  Miller, the comics genius behind Sin City, Dark Knight Returns, Batman Year One, 300, Ronin, and so much more openly discussed his addiction, recovery as well as upcoming projects.  This interview, When Death Came for Frank Miller is not to be missed.

Congratulations to Frank Miller for his health comeback.  The Sin City western is music to my ears.

The Blood Brothers Mother #1 by Brian Azzarello & Eduardo Risso / Z-View

That’s one of the covers to The Blood Brothers Mother #1 by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso.  I say one of the covers, because there are variants available.  I selected the Eduardo Risso cover, since I’m a huge Risso fan and he did the art for the series.

Anything Azzarello and Risso team to create is worth more than a glance.  Best known for the award-winning series 100 Bullets, Azzarello and Risso should clear out more space on their mantles.  The Blood Brothers Mother is off to that great of a start.

Carter Cain is an outlaw.  Recently released after a five year stint in a Mexican prison, Carter has one thing on his mind.

Anna.

Carter’s gang is there to meet him when he’s released.  They’re ready to take up their old ways.  Easy money to be had by robbin’ and killin’.  But Carter has other plans.  They’ll get Anna and then return to the life.

The fact that Anna’s married with three young boys means nothing to Carter.  She’s his and he’ll have her.

Issue one of The Blood Brothers Mother starts as Carter Cain’s story.  But it’s not.  If anything it is the prologue to Anna’s boys’ story.

Azzarello and Risso’s first issue perfectly sets up a story of adventure and revenge.  The oversize format is justified by Risso’s stunning watercolors.

The Blood Brothers Mother #1 by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso rates 5 of 5 stars.
