A Son’s Grief After Sudden Family Tragedy in a New Look at The Down River People

BOOM! Studios has revealed a brand new look at the original graphic novel The Down River People— reuniting writer Adam Smith and artist Matt Fox, creative team of the Eisner and Harvey Award-nominated Long Walk to Valhalla, for a riveting new story about a man attempting to survive the complicated and dangerous web of his family’s dark past with his soul intact, available in comic shops on May 26, 2021 and in bookstores on June 1.

Myers Carpenter is a bootlegger who just inherited his family’s bar, The Flatbed. Unsure of whether or not he wants to keep the famous speakeasy, Myers is forced to find a new booze supplier when he burns his bridges at his longtime source in Mississippi. The only option he can turn to is his estranged mother, now running a fishing lodge for the wealthy, and a half sister he knew nothing about. 

As Myers becomes more entangled in the lives of his newfound family, he begins to learn the secrets of the fishing lodge and the sinister cult thriving just under the surface of wealth and opulence.
