When you’re a comic book fan, few things are quite as exciting as a new release. The anticipation of what lies within the pages is an unparalleled feeling of excitement. Breath of Shadows #1 did not let down.
The team behind Sea of Sorrows and Road of Bones have returned with a brand-new tale that places readers in mid-1960s America. Jimmy Meadows is experiencing his best days ever; his band is topping charts, but his addiction to drugs threatens to derail everything he has built. A friend mentions an unconventional method to kick the habit once and for all – but will it lead him closer to clean living or something much worse?
Part of what makes Breath of Shadows stand out from other comics is its unique layouts. Paired with Justin Birch’s impactful lettering, there’s no doubt that readers will be pulled into this world from page one. Every page feels like a work of art – the panels are well thought out and the art itself carries a distinct style that sets it apart from other comics in the horror genre.
If you’re looking for an intense horror story set in 1960s America then look no further than Breath of Shadows #1. Douek and Cormack have created an unforgettable experience filled with beautiful artwork and gripping storytelling.
Breath of Shadows #1 hits your local comic shop on February 1, and it packs all the punch you would expect from Douek and Cormack. From its unique layouts to its gripping story set in mid-1960s America, this comic will keep fans guessing until the very last page as they follow Jimmy Meadow’s journey as he battles his own personal demons while trying to survive against all odds!
The debut issue features a variant cover by Bjorn Barends in addition to the main cover from Cormack. The second issue will be available on March 1 from IDW Publishing.
Rich Douek and Alex Cormack are set to join the Capes and Tights Podcast in early March to discuss Breath of Shadows and more!
