Earlier this year when Image Comics made the announcement that they would be releasing “SHUDDERTOWN”, an all new original mini-series from “EXISTENCE 3.0″ and “FORGETLESS” mastermind Nick Spencer, a lot of people stood up and took notice. The best evidence of this is the fact that backissues of the series are almost scarce, and many are jockeying this one for Eisner Awards in the future. But we hear that all the time right? Well, yes, we do. However, if there is a series that DESERVES that type of hype right now it might just be this one. Need convincing? Well then my friends you came to the right place as you can make the jump to read a 5 page preview of the newest issue that is on sale TODAY, and a little ‘Why You Should Care’ for good measure. Read on for the skinny.
Last month Image Comics released the first issue of “EXISTENCE 2.0″ and “FORGETLESS” creator Nick Spencer’s newest mini-series, “SHUDDERTOWN”. The title itself is a bit of an enigma following Homicide Detective (and drug addict) Isaac Hernandez as he tries to solve the mystery of the bodies turning up in his town by what would seem to be the stupidest murderer of all time. Fingerprints, DNA, fibers, and every other piece of evidence a cop could possibly hope to find on the scene is there, but the only catch is is that they all lead back to one guy who just so happens to be dead. For those of you who enjoy some “SE7EN” inspired thrills with your hard boiled noir read on for the 5 page preview of the second issue.
Holy crap has Image come out of the gates swinging this year. To add yet another dark tale to their laundry list of titles coming to you this April, today I got to preview Nick Spencer’s(“EXISTENCE”, “FORGETLESS”) newest mini-series entitled “SHUDDERTOWN”. Inside you’ll find the first 5 pages of this genuinely intriguing title that looks to be somewhere between “SE7EN” and “‘MULHOLLAND DRIVE”. “The dead are killing, and troubled homicide cop Isaac Hernandez is on a desperate search for answers. His investigation leads him deep into the corridors of the Shuddertown housing projects, and towards a truth too terrible to face.”
