BOOM! Studios have announced details of THE DOWN RIVER PEOPLE, the latest collaboration from the Eisner and Harvey Award-nominated Long Walk to Valhalla pairing of writer Adam Smith and artist Matt Fox.
This new original graphic novel, which tells the story of a man attempting to survive the complicated and dangerous web of his family’s dark past with his soul intact, will be available in May 2021.
Here’s the official blurb:
Myers Carpenter is a bootlegger who just inherited his family’s bar, The Flatbed. Unsure of whether or not he wants to keep the famous speakeasy, Myers is forced to find a new booze supplier when he burns his bridges at his longtime source in Mississippi. The only option he can turn to is his estranged mother, now running a fishing lodge for the wealthy, and a half-sister he knew nothing about.
As Myers becomes more entangled in the lives of his newfound family, he begins to learn the secrets of the fishing lodge and the sinister cult thriving just under the surface of wealth and opulence.
Print copies of The Down River People will be available on May 26th 2021 at local comic shops, and from June 1st 2021 at bookstores.
