Running for the wrong people will get you killed, a fact Saheer pushes out of his mind as he does a job for the Punchbowl’s resident gangster. Trapped on the 40th floor with a madman, none of the paths to the ground are very appealing.

AfterShock Announces Patience! Conviction! Revenge!

Disregarded, disrespected and dismissed, Renny has a chip on his shoulder.

Once an equal partner in a criminal syndicate that rules Las Vegas, he now finds himself living in a shack in the desert. But the shack has a workshop, and Renny’s been busy. It’s time to march his robot army into the neon hell of a cyberpunk Vegas and retake his seat at the table. Or take the wood from the table and build enough caskets for the whole syndicate.

Old friends better run, because Operation PATIENCE! CONVICTION! REVENGE! is underway.

Like an Elmore Leonard novel set in the world of Blade Runner, Patience! Conviction! Revenge! is offbeat and often funny, but all about the dark corners of cities and minds. A violent criminal genius with a bad case of monomania makes for the most fun you’ll have with a comic this year.

Written by Patrick Kindlon and drawn by Marco Ferrari, Patience! Conviction! Revenge! continues Kindlon’s exploration of difficult characters and irreverent themes. Having broken the chains of good taste, Kindlon goes all-in and writes a vengeance-obsessed lunatic as if he’s riding beside him—all wrapped in a gangster tale like no other! The first issue features colors by Patrizia Comino, lettering by Jim Campbell, a cover by Ferrari and Comino, and second cover by Robert Hack.

Downtown Honolulu is a sniper alley, and Saheer runs it better than anyone. He’s a local celebrity for transporting medicine and information across a no-man’s land occupied by militias and street gangs.

But what people say about you is never the full story, and when the cheers die out Saheer is left with just his anxieties… and his secrets.

The first of a five-issue series that keeps its foot pressed on your adrenal gland.

From writer Patrick Kindlon (We Can Never Go Home, There’s Nothing There, S.H.I.E.L.D.: Quake) and illustrator Antonio Fuso (James Bond), Survival Fetish is a pulse-pounding thrill-ride that mixes political intrigue with deep characters and high octane action.

In Stores: December 13, 2017

Heading your way on December 13th, Black Mask is proud to present THERE’S NOTHING THERE Vol 1, the collected trade paperback of this stylish and hallucinatory horror comic book mini-series illustrated by Maria Llovet and written by Patrick Kindlon (We Can Never Go Home, SHIELD: Quake).

THERE’S NOTHING THERE is a smart-sexy thriller that takes place in the upper echelons of celebrity culture where power brokers treat young starlets like cattle, but in this twisted tale the world is presented through the prism of the paranormal, the paranoid, and those Hollywood Babylon legends of occult celebrity-sacrifices that might just have a few kernels of truth to them. THERE’S NOTHING THERE gives us a sharp new heroine who plays the game without being anyone’s pawn.

Maria and Patrick’s storytelling is brave and provocative while staying nuanced and sophisticated, bringing us slowly into a surreal world that feels all to real.

Reno’s efforts to stay in the public eye leave her feeling, ahem, exposed. It takes a lot to stay relevant, and high-risk activities are what sells.

Reno and the gang are left with nowhere to hide. The end is near.

There’s Nothing There is a stylish & hallucinatory thriller about losing yourself in the bright lights and finding yourself at rock bottom by writer Patrick Kindlon, artist Maria Llovet, and published by Black Mask Studios.

Patrick joins Brett and Elana for a brand new episode of Graphic Policy Radio to discuss the series and more.

Patrick Kindlon is a comic writer whose credits include a decade of struggle in other artistic fields, some notoriety among people who get caught shoplifting from Whole Foods, and a few really great comics (due largely to collaborations that elevate his work). His breakthrough book was We Can Never Go Home with oft writing partner Matthew Rosenberg and artist Josh Hood. His most recent work, There’s Nothing There with artist Maria Llovet, ups the darkness in his earlier work to pitch black. He is admittedly out-of-touch.
