When the chips are down, all bets are off in Slots

Superstar artist Dan Panosian will take on writing as well as art duties on his all-new series Slots, coming this October from Image Comics and Skybound Entertainment.

You can say this about the life of Stanley Dance: he did it his way.

Unfortunately, his way never took getting old into account. Now, the former boxer is on his last legs, and looking for redemption…but he’ll settle for going down swinging.

Slots is a bold new take on Las Vegas, where everything old can become new, and superstition influences how the chips fall.

Slots #1 (Diamond code: AUG170587) arrives in comic book stores Wednesday, October 4th. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, September 11th.
