Black River by Josh Simmons - Inside Page

Our printer copies of Black River have arrived, and the sun just disappeared behind a large, grey cloud. 

Coincidence?

Josh Simmons' newest long form work since his 2007 acclaimed graphic novel House is a post-apocalyptic tale that, at its core, embodies despair and the most basic, primal graspings of survival. Don't go looking for a happy ending here.

Black River hits bookstores this May. Fans of Simmons, horror, and post-apocalyptic stories, pre-order this book here.

Black River by Josh Simmons - Excerpt
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsJosh SimmonsComing Attractions 25 Feb 2015 4:50 PM

A bedraggled group of travelers finds an abandoned storehouse full of rations, fresh water, alcohol, and supplies. They celebrate, even as one of them uncovers a dead body in a dark corner.

Anyone who has read Josh Simmons' previous work can already guess that such celebration will be short-lived. In his latest full-length graphic novel, Black River, Simmons takes us to a post-apocalyptic world of desperation, survival of the most brutal, and chaos in the form of gangs, a drug called Gumdrop, and resource scarcity. In the midst of this, a group of nine travelers and their two dogs do their best to survive, hoping against hope to find safe haven.

Read our 9-page, downloadable PDF excerpt here, then go pre-order your copy for a May delivery! And make sure to keep tabs on our Flog and social media for more previews and author appearances.
