Coming this January from Scout Comics‘ Black Caravan imprint is The Shepherd.
Prof. Lawrence Miller falls into a dark vortex of guilt and anger after enduring the tragic death of his teenage son from a drug overdose. He cannot shake the sense that his son is now a lost soul, wandering between heaven and earth. Grieving and profoundly disturbed, he opts for suicide, pursuing his son into the afterlife. Once on the other side, he encounters his deceased father and is given a mystical pendant of great power. Unfortunately, in Lawrence’s hands it becomes a weapon that allows him to unleash his fury on those who brought the drugs to his son, leaving a trail of insanity and chaos in his wake. His existence becomes a terrifying conflict between his unchecked anger and his knowledge that he might have lost his way.
The Shepherd is co-written and co-created by Andrea Lorenzo Molinari and Roberto Xavier Molinari, with art by Ryan Showers and Luca Panciroli, color by Heather Breckel and Pamela Poggiali, lettering by Jacob Bascle and Joel Rodriguez, and project managed by Jason Dube.
