by Olly MacNamee
Last year comiXology brokered a deal with Dark Horse Comics enabling them to publish some of their more popular comiXology Originals’ titles in print. Well, Afterlift by writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Jason Loo with colour art by Paris Alleyne, lettered by Aditya Bidikar and edited by Allison O’Toole, includes a Jason Loo Sketchbook with commentary by Zdarsky as well as a process piece called ‘Anatomy of a Page’.
“Afterlift is a fast-paced story about car chases, demon bounty hunters, and figuring out your place in this world and the next. Janice Chen recently quit her day job in finance and signs up to be a driver on a ride-sharing app. She has enough to deal with, from annoying passengers to overbearing parents. But what was at first a mundane yet enjoyable way to pass the time takes a terrible turn when she picks up a pair of mysterious passengers who are pursued by otherworldly forces, Janice realizes that her already-terrible day might be headed straight to hell.”
Afterlift will be available on February 2nd in bookstores and everywhere books are sold and February 3rd in comic shops. And here’s a taster of the collected story below:
