Filmmaker Macon Blair Brings You Long Road to Liquor City
Jumping trains and throwing pies! The oogles have nothing on Oni Press’ new original graphic novel, Long Road to Liquor City. Written by Macon Blair, Gotham Independent Film Award Breakthrough Actor nominee and director of the Portland-based film, I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore, with art by Eisner-nominated author and illustrator of Science Comics, Joe Flood, comes a Great Depression-era adventure comedy about love, friendship, and the pursuit of happiness.
As jaunty hobos Jed and Thanny crisscross the country in search of the fabled Liquor City, they are pursued relentlessly by fearsome rail yard sergeant Ronan O’Feathers, who wrongly blames them for his wife’s death. With the the law on their tails and a succession of colorful characters along the way, the only constant is the absurdity and mayhem they leave in their wake on the Long Road to Liquor City.
Long Road to Liquor City lands in bookstores and comic shops on February 19th.
