The Dieselpunk post-WWI series Broken Gargoyles is returning with covers by NYTimes Best-selling Author and Eisner Award-Winner Francesco Francavilla. Broken Gargoyles: Sin and Virtue is written by Bob Salley and Dr. Christina Blanch, with art by Stan Yak and Robert Nugent.
The comic series is influenced by the historical “Broken Gargoyles;” men who came home from World War 1 facially wounded and emotionally scarred. The times were different then. Employers often wouldn’t hire these men, their wives left them, they turned to alcohol, and many succumbed to suicide.
In Broken Gargoyles: Sin and Virtue, Prescott and his men seek out the widow of their fallen brother-in-arms as they find her fighting to keep her farmland, while Manco teams up with an aging US Marshall on her last assignment to capture Ben and the other escaped convicts.
Broken Gargoyles: Sin and Virtue also features art from Mike Lilly and Ken Perry. Salley is joined this time around by Co-Writer Blanch who began her time with Broken Gargoyles as a fan.
Source Point Press is a division of Ox Eye Media, publishing books, comics, and graphic novels. Broken Gargoyles: Sin and Virtue #1 is available to pre-order now and will be released Wednesday, June 30. The first volume, Broken Gargoyles: Of Wrath, is available now.
