Buzz is starting to build for Recoil's last Issue #1 of this first year, Sam Hill : 1939 ,The Mysterious Case. CBR placed it on their Best of 7 list--making it one for their favorite comics of the past seven days. Thanks to Tim O'Shea and CBR for spreading the good word about our new adventures with former Texas hotel manager turned Los Angeles detective, Sam Hill!
And keep your eyes peeled in late June, for our first issue #2 of this year, DRY COUNTY.
The first issue of our newest adventure with Sam Hill (from The Cavalier Mr. Thompson, published in 2012) finds him at age 30, circa 1939, living in Los Angeles and working as an investigator for the District Attorney's office. On the very cusp of the noir genre in film, Sam finds himself in the middle of a double murder case involving oil industry magnates, con men, crooked cops and a budding movie starlet. Much like Cavalier, but heavier on the crime, The Mysterious Case should satisfy readers interested in pulp fiction and historical fiction alike. Order your copy today at the comicshop link above!
I am proud to announce that Patrick Dean's new monster crime comic, Cold Crew will be published by Recoil Comics this Fall. This will be Recoil's first publication not penned by myself. It will have an early release at Heroes Con this summer, but it's official release date will be in October, around Halloween--a perfect time slot given it's part horror, part crime nature. Below is the cover image--gorgeously drawn by Dean and given the full Recoil design treatment. Stay tuned to Recoil Comics for more news and sneak peeks at further comics (and graphic novel) publishing ventures coming soon!
