Savage Town is an upcoming original graphic novel from Declan Shalvey, Philip Barrett, and Jordie Bellaire to be published by Image Comics.
The team have just launched a new website for the book, an it’s currently hosting a 22 page preview to give you quite a substantial view of this work they’ve created.
Set in the Irish city of Limerick, Savage Town is about a low-level criminal wannabe “gangster on the rise” and the forces he finds himself up against to cling onto that upward trajectory.
Or, in the team’s parlance:
With the local cops, rival gangs, his best mate, and his mammy all out to stick a knife in him, will the bollocks live long enough to get to the top? More importantly, will he pay me back for that fiver I gave him last week?
This “original Irish graphic crime novel” is bound to be a fresh experience in comics.
Check out that 22 page preview on their website, and look out for it when it lands in shops on September 20th, 2017.
