Dark Horse will publish Snow Angels Volume 2, collecting the conclusion of the acclaimed limited 10-issue series by writer Jeff Lemire and artist Jock. Snow Angels Volume 1, collecting issues #1-4 arrives in print in February 2022 and is going back to press for a second printing.
Snow Angels is the first collaboration between the two renowned talents. Together, they have created an epic science fiction adventure story set in a brutal near future where the world is covered in ice.
In Snow Angels, Milliken and Mae have never left The Trench—it’s all they’ve ever known. They were born in The Trench, and they’ll die there, just like all their people do. The two girls, eight and eleven, are a part of The Trenchfolk, a sprawling settlement of people living inside the massive ice walls of a vast, seemingly endless frozen trench carved into the surface of an otherwise icy wasteland. The Trenchfolk survive in this hostile world by following The Three Testaments of The Trench—golden rules repeated like a mantra from birth to death…
- YOU MUST NEVER LEAVE THE TRENCH.
- THE TRENCH PROVIDES.
- THE TRENCH IS ENDLESS.
Milli and Mae don’t really know how their people came to live here. No one does, not even their wise and gentle father. On Milliken’s twelfth birthday, their father takes the two girls on an overnight skate down the trench — a coming-of-age ritual to teach them how to fish the frozen river, how to hunt the wild Trenchdogs that wander its frigid banks, and how to give proper thanks to their frozen Gods — The Colden Ones. It’s the trip of a lifetime until the girls push beyond the borders of their humble land and awaken the Trench’s deadly defender…The Snowman!
