Please call or visit your local comics shop before March 3 and ask them to carry the graphic novel before it’s too late!
The visceral revenge thriller merges the real-world hopes and horrors of a post-disaster community with an engaging thread of political corruption, class divide and blood-curdling terror! From Louisiana native and Disney screenwriter Mark Landry, “Bloodthirsty” is illustrated by “Interview With The Vampire” and “Squarriors” artist Ashley Marie Witter, and Richard Pace (“Batman: The Doom That Came to Gotham”), and has received public support from none other than superstar artist Georges Jeanty (“Serenity,” “Buffy The Vampire Slayer”). The 144-page trade paperback features a stunning cover by “The Star Wars” cover artist Nick Runge, as well as interviews with the real heroes of the Katrina rescue – US Army and Coast Guard personnel.
Haunted by the catastrophe that tore his city apart 10 years ago, Coast Guard veteran Virgil Lafleur struggles daily with the hardships of a post-Katrina New Orleans. But when his younger brother’s murder leads him into a vortex of intrigue, corruption, and violence, Virgil becomes obsessed with bringing the killers to justice and exposing the horrific secret hiding beneath the Mississippi.
