Alright folks, the Final Order Cut off for THE VIOLENT #1 is on November 16th. Get your butts down to your LCS and make sure that they order the HELL out of his book.

Adam Gorham, Michael Garland, Tom Muller and I have been working our asses off on this and we could not be prouder of how it’s all come together. This is probably one of the most personal books I’ve ever written. 

If any of you have read my series MURDER BOOK, then you’ll know what’s in store. THE VIOLENT is essentially the successor to MURDER BOOK. Rather than short stories though, THE VIOLENT will stick with characters through five issue arcs.

The first arc, BLOOD LIKE TAR, follows  Mason, an ex-con and former drug addict who’s trying hard to give up his old life. He’s got more important things to live for now: a wife struggling to contain her own addiction and a young daughter who needs them both. When threatened with losing his daughter, Mason falls into old habits, stumbling through a string of desperate criminal acts whose repercussions quickly become deadly serious.

THE VIOLENT #1 (Diamond Code OCT150505) will hit comic book stores on Wednesday, December 9th. The final order cutoff deadline for comic book retailers is Monday, November 16th.

If you’re a reviewer who’s interested in talking about the book or getting an early peek or if you’re a retailer who hasn’t already received a PDF preview copy, please hit me up at edbrissonATgmailDOTcom.
