Deep Cuts tells stories of the interconnected struggle, joy and hope in jazz
Radiant Black writers Kyle Higgins and Joe Clark team up with an all-star cast of best selling artists for the forthcoming, Deep Cuts. This miniseries will feature six double-length issues and will launch in April from Image Comics.
The artists on deck for each issue include Danilo Beyruth, Helena Masellis, Diego Greco, Ramón K Pérez, Juni Ba, and Toby Cypress with all issues colored by Igor Monti. The covers will all be connecting artwork by Chris Brunner and Rico Renzi and will span 60 iconic years of music history.
Bonus backmatter material for each Deep Cuts issue will also include lead sheets of original songs by Chicago jazz composers, inspired by and connected to each issue’s story.
Inspired by real events, Deep Cuts tells stories of the interconnected struggle, joy and hope in jazz as well as the (sometimes) stray connections that ultimately inspire each new generation.
Deep Cuts #1 is set in New Orleans, 1917. In the city’s bustling red-light district, a young clarinet player lands a job with his hero—but he’ll soon discover there’s more to the music business than playing the right notes.
Deep Cuts #1 (Diamond Code FEB230009) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, April 26.
