“I’ll be uncharacteristically brazen and just say this book is flat-out too good not to sell out,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “We’re so proud of this series. It reflects everything we love about making comics. DEAD LETTERS is an elevated, 4-color howitzer of genre fiction from two future stars who are showing us what their made of. This is what we strive for at BOOM!. And we’re so happy retailers and readers have responded the way they have. Sam Whistler’s story is just beginning. Nobody is prepared for what comes next.”
WHY WE LOVE IT: Here at BOOM! Studios, crime is in our blood—from our comic-turned-feature film 2 GUNS to our critically acclaimed series HIT, we’ve always had a passion for all things noir. DEAD LETTERS is the next step in our exploration of the genre.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Creators Christopher Sebela (Ghost, High Crimes) and newcomer Chris Visions are two fresh voices that are about to take the industry by storm. Don’t miss out on a wholly unique take on supernatural noir.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Sam Whistler wakes up in an unfamiliar motel room, dressed in hospital scrubs and his arms wrapped in bandages. He remembers nothing—not how he got here, not where here is...not even his own name. But the goons knocking down his door sure do, and it’s going to take every single move in Sam’s forgotten repertoire to outrun and outsmart the gang war he’s just stumbled into.
