Oni Press’ new comic series, The Damned, from the award-winning creators of The Sixth Gun, Cullen Bunn, Brian Hurtt, and Bill Crabtree is a brand new chapter in their famous demonic noir tale of tommy-guns and hellfire.
This brand new ongoing series debuts with a $1.00 first issue that hits store shelves just in time for Free Comic Book Day 2017. The new #1 is a perfect fit for new and returning fans; it’s a jumping on point for anyone who has never heard of The Damned, and this #1 issue picks up right where the trade left off.
In a Prohibition-era world where demonic princes pull the strings that make crime families dance, Eddie is a mortal with two things working for him.
First of all, he can’t die. Well, he can and does, quite often, but he doesn’t stay down for long. Second, Eddie runs the Gehenna Room, a nightclub with a strict “no demons allowed” policy. But blessings and curses don’t look all that different these days, and failing to tell the two apart can get a guy killed–over and over again in Eddie’s case.
So when one of Eddie’s old pals shows up seeking sanctuary, Eddie knows he’s in for a double-cross, and that means walking the line between salvation and damnation once more.
The Damned #1 will be available in comic book shops on May 3, 2017. Available for pre-order now at local comic book shops with Diamond Order Code MAR171937. The final order cutoff for comic shop retailers is Monday, April 10.
