Kurt Sutter’s “Sisters of Sorrow” Creative Team Revealed

BOOM! Studios has revealed the creative team for Sisters of Sorrow, the first original series created exclusively for comic books by Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter. Launching in July, Bram Stoker Award-nominated novelist Courtney Alameda and breakthrough artist Hyeonjin Kim join Sutter for a revenge story he describes as, “Nuns with guns.”

By day, Dominique, Misha, Sarah, and Greta run a nonprofit women’s shelter. At night, they each don a nun’s habit and move through Los Angeles hunting down violent abusers who have escaped justice. Their increasingly public vigilantism has earned them the nickname, “Sisters of Sorrow”—and has drawn the ire of L.A.’s notorious anti-crime task force.

In the announcement, Alameda said:

As a woman who’s experienced intimate partner abuse—and watched her friends deal with it as well—I can’t lie, Sisters of Sorrow is cathartic to write. And while I may personally identify with the issues that Dominique, Misha, Sarah, and Greta each face, I also believe the story of their crusade for justice will resonate broadly with readers, too. Who can say they haven’t secretly dreamt of meting out justice to their bullies or abusers? And as someone who grew up watching Westerns with her father, I love the way Sisters of Sorrow subverts the stereotypical vigilante tale and puts the power in the victims’ own hands. Dominique, Misha, Sarah, and Greta don’t need a man to save them—they can save their own damn selves.

Kim added:

The main focus of Sisters of Sorrow is that the female characters are antiheroes. Despite prior challenges in their life, they strive to overcome them. As an Asian woman, it means a lot for me to work on a project like this since it defies the racial and sexual standards and expectations of society. It is a project that introduces harmony amongst female characters of different races, while presenting them as strong, individual women who strive to solve social problems.

Sisters of Sorrow is the latest project Sutter has worked on with BOOM! Studios, having supervised original stories in the publisher’s hit Sons of Anarchy comic book series (including the current Sons of Anarchy Redwood Original title) and launching an original supernatural series, Lucas Stand.
