NEW ONGOING SERIES written and illustrated by JEFF LEMIRE (DESCENDER, A.D., Sweet Tooth). ROYAL CITY charts the lives, loves, and losses of a troubled family and a vanishing town across three decades. Patrick Pike, a fading literary star who reluctantly returns to the once-thriving factory town where he grew up, is quickly drawn back into the dramas of his two adult siblings, his overbearing mother, and his brow-beaten father, all of whom are still haunted by different versions of his youngest brother, Tommy, who drowned decades ago. ROYAL CITY is a return to the literary and thematic territory of LEMIREÕs breakthrough graphic novel Essex County and is his most ambitious, and most personal, project to date.
Before he and his family became hunted by The Rot, Buddy Baker starred in a low budget indie Super Hero film. Now we get to 'watch' the movie, courtesy of director Jeff Lemire and guest cinematographer John Paul Leon!
