Dani Strips, artist on 2000AD, Girl With No Nam, and the Low, Low Woods for DC Comics teams with writer Dan Watters (Sandman Universe: Lucifer, Limbo) for an all-new action series full of grindhouse nightmares and high-octane chills in Coffin Bound.
The series will launch from Image Comics this August.
Chased by an unstoppable killer, Izzy Tyburn has decided that if the world won’t have her in it, it can have nothing of her at all. She’s retreading her life, leaving nothing but burned rubber, ash… and the sun-scorched bones of those who get in her way.
“This is a book all about the inevitability of death, and the choice each of us faces between coming to terms with it or trying to deny it,” says Dan Watters. “This is a book drawn beautifully by Dani, with Brad Simpson’s filthy bright colours. This is a book about cars, guns, and sex – and how each of those things does little to stave off the bottomless void waiting just beyond the veil of our known existence.
“What was the question again?”
