Dead Letters TPB Debuts in August
It's no secret that comics are expensive now. You can drop $4 on a single issue and you're lucky if you get more than 24 pages of content. Fortunately BOOM! Studios is looking out for you. The publisher has recently announced that the first trade paperback of Dead Letters will be released this August for a special introductory price of $9.99. The press release doesn't confirm the total number of issues included in this first volume, but based on the page count listed on Amazon (112), I'm betting it will be 4 or 5.
Dead Letters is written by Christopher Sebela and illustrated by Chris Visions. It's a supernatural noir comic centered on Sam Whistler, a man who wakes up in a strange motel room, dressed in hospital scrubs and his arms wrapped in bandages. He has no memory about who he is or how he got there. There are men knocking down his door that seem to know. Suddenly, Sam finds himself in the middle of a gang war in the bizarre landscape known only as “Here,” an amalgamation of different places from different times in which normal rules – particularly those of life and death – don't apply.
“Christopher Sebela and Chris Visions have poured everything they’ve got into this series, and it shows on every page,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “Getting a noir series right is difficult enough on its own, but creating the world of ‘Here’ and adding this otherworldly element is just a phenomenal achievement. We’re incredibly proud of this series and happy to be collecting it in a volume that will allow readers to jump in at a great price.”
Dead Letters: Volume 1 will be available in August and will retail for $9.99. It can be pre-ordered from your local comic shop or Amazon.com.
