Declan Shalvey Teams Up with Philip Barrett and Jordie Bellaire for Savage Town this September
Declan Shalvey takes the helm as a writer, with artist Philip Barrett and Eisner Award-winning colorist Jordie Bellaire, for Savage Town, an original graphic novel coming this September from Image Comics.
Loosely based on real events at the turn of the millennium, Savage Town follows Jimmy “Hardy” Savage, the head of a small gang in Limerick City, Ireland. His presence has been tolerated, up until now, by the two large gangs that hold Limerick in their grasp. With these rival gangs, the local cops, his best mate, and his mammy all out to stick a knife in him, will he live long enough to get to the top? More importantly, will he pay me back for that fiver I gave him last week?
Savage Town (Diamond code: JUN170700, ISBN: 978-1-5343-0246-4) will arrive in comic book stores Wednesday, September 6th and bookstores Tuesday, September 12th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, August 14th.
