Jim Munro & Shannon Gerard present Sword of My Mouth #1

:: Posted by max @ 2/25/2009 05:14:00 AM
In a follow-up sequel to the acclaimed graphic novel Therefore Repent! writer Jim Munroe once again takes us into his world of post-Rapture America, where the immoral majority remains, and nothing quite makes sense.

Join Ella, and her not-quite-right baby as they try to make a life in a very different Detroit, one where magic works and no one seems safe from unexplainable mutations, not even it seems the truly innocent.

Sword of My Mouth #1
Jim Munroe (w) - Shannon Gerard (a)

If Ella didn't have her baby, she'd go crazy from the loneliness. But she might still go crazy from the guilt, because the baby isn't quite right. The world was simpler before the righteous floated away into the sky, and magic started working.

A stand-alone six-issue story continuing on from acclaimed graphic novel Therefore Repent! Sword of My Mouth moves the focus from Chicago, under siege by angels with machine guns, to the urban prairie of Detroit, where a different kind of struggle is faced.

Folks in the D have banded together to turn land with burned out crackhouses into farming tracts, and seem to be on a road to self-sufficiency... until Famine rides into town. This six-issue story arc will be written by creator Jim Munroe ("a pop culture provocateur" - Austin Chronicle) and drawn by Shannon Gerard.

B&W - 32 pages - $3.99
