The Devil’s Cut is your introduction to DSTLRY, a new publisher redefining creator-owned comics. In the aging process, the whiskey that evaporates is called the Angel’s Share. But the most potent spirits are captured in the wood-the Devil’s Cut.
The debut comic released from the comic book world’s newest publisher is filled with unfiltered stories from the most fearless creators, offering a distinct taste of the quality to come. The one-shot features 88 oversized pages of material printed on premium paper filled with stories and artwork from some of the best in the business.
The Devil’s Cut features stories from Founding Creators including Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, Tula Lotay, Mirka Andolfo, Jock, Becky Cloonan, Brian Azzarello, Marc Bernardin, Elsa Charretier, Lee Garbett, Joelle Jones, Stephanie Phillips, Ram V, Jamie McKelvie, Junko Mizuno and friends including Francesco Francavilla, Ariela Kristantina, Eduardo Risso, Christian Ward, and more. While also edited by the legendary Will Dennis.
Sometimes when a super team forms in sports or a supergroup gets together in music it doesn’t always work out to their advantage. This cannot be said about The Devil’s Cut and the future of DSTLRY. If the debut one-shot is even a glimpse of what we can expect from these legendary creators we are in for a hell of a ride.
Story, artwork, lettering and design in The Devil’s Cut is top-notch. The one-shot has real John Hammond vibes as we feel as DSTLRY “spared no expense” creating a one-of-a-kind comic for real comic book fans. Let’s just hope that DSTLRY has a better future than Jurassic Park.
The initial release of a teaser of what to expect from the new kid on the block is a great way for us to see what is to come. So be sure to grab your copy at your local comic shop on August 30, 2023 as the kick-off issue will never be reprinted in this format ever again.
Be on the lookout for Gone, Jock’s debut series from DSTLRY, coming in October 25, 2023.
