Coming Soon in 2020: Slow City Blues
The story: “Slow City Blues brings you everything you crave in a comic book: action, adventure, suspense, fantasy, tragedy, and plenty of humor. The story is focused on Detective John Loris, who gets trapped inside his imagination after accidentally killing a little girl in the line of duty. After trying to take his own life, John instead ends up in Slow City, a construct of his mind’s eye, a place where anything and everything is possible, except a way out.
John Loris is both revered and reviled as The Creator, but in Slow City, even God is just another slob. So, he does the only thing he knows how: Be a cop. But times are changing and the wheels in his mind are in motion. And now, John and his partner, a six foot six, smart-ass skunk, must solve a double homicide and bring the killer to justice before a gang war between the Gorillas of the Devil's Backbone and the Dragons of the Midnight Syndicate destroy Slow City.”
Slow City Blues #1 will hit local comic shops on Wednesday, February 19.
Slow City Blues #1 will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including the official Image Comics iOS app, Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
Squeedar thoughts: Honestly, this is the first I have heard of Jim Shooter. So it is not the comic industry legend that draws me to this comic. It is definitely the cool, weird art. This interior art alone is bursting full of visual wonder. How can you not keep focusing the donut?! Now I want a donut. I don’t even like donuts.
The whole trapped in the imagination aspect automatically reminds of the movie, Monkey Bone which starred Brendan Fraser. I love that weird so much!
