Le nouveau projet indépendant Dead Body Road du scénariste Justin Jordan (Luther Strode) se fera toujours chez Image Comics, mais sous le label Skybound de Robert Kirkman.
Dans cette mini-série au relent de western moderne, l’ancien flic Gage poursuit ceux qu’il estime coupable du meurtre de sa femme. Le dessinateur Matteo Scalera (Black Science) se chargera de la partie graphique des 6 numéros.
Sortie de Dead Body Road #1 en novembre.
[quote=“Justin Jordan”]It is set in the modern day – I don’t want people to think it’s ‘Jonah Hex’ or ‘Lawless.’ I was a big fan of Westerns as a kid, and I actually still am – not to the extent that I’ve gone to see ‘The Lone Ranger’ as yet but a general thing," Jordan said. "I like the aesthetic and I spent some time in West Texas just getting to experience the actual desert and areas that are actually kinda desolate still. You can go miles and miles and miles without seeing a building, and the harshness of the terrain has a lot to do with the tone and feel of the book for me. I wanted to do a Western-type thing set in a modern setting so it’s got a real desert-dry feel to it.
"And like I said, I like crime and thrillers, so I wanted to see if I could cross some of that with the noir sensibilities and see what we’ve got.[/quote]
