Overview:
 

“A dark, rich anthology. There are acts of violence in profusion: also addictions, betrayals, uneasy consciences, moral ambiguities, bad choices and inadequate redemptions. Most importantly of all, there are strong creative voices, using the comics medium to do ambitious things.”

Mike Carey
(THE UNWRITTEN, HELLBLAZER)

ACTS OF VIOLENCE is a collection of short stories in the pulp tradition. It doesn’t shy away from bullets or bloodshed. It tackles characters with flawed judgment and loose morals. The storylines are ripped from the filthy underbelly of the world in which we live. ACTS OF VIOLENCE peers into the shadows and shines a light on what scuttles on the periphery.

In THE THREE PRINCES, a trio of young friends is schooled on the alcohol and blood soaked streets of Prohibition era America.

A rookie lawman must protect a killer from the desperate and despairing parents of a murdered girl in SIX O’CLOCK NOOSE.

A drug addled ten-time loser seeks to break the chains of misery that bind him in REGGIE-TOWN.

And in THE ORCHARD, two cops take a late night drive into broken morals and violence.

Featuring the talents of Toren Atkinson, Ed Brisson, Chad Boudreau, Dino Caruso, Damian Couceiro, Todd Ireland, Kevin Leeson, Manoel Magalhaes, and Marvin Mann and cover art by Fiona Staples, ACTS OF VIOLENCE unveils a roster of new voices in hard-boiled crime comics.
