3 Pages Deep Into Rich Tommaso's Dark Corridor

unnamed (8)Earlier this year, Bleeding Cool Editor-In-Chief Hannah Means-Shannon talked to cartoonist Rich Tommaso. In which he told her,

there's very little editing of your ideas going on in the indie world vs. working at say, Marvel or DC. The con is that you're always going to be dirt poor working on that side of the fence.

Well with his new Image Comics title Dark Corridor out in two weeks, that may not be an issue.

DARK CORRIDOR is set in the fictional coastal city of Red Circle, a town totally controlled by mobsters. But after decades of wielding power, the mobster's stronghold is slipping and some unidentified female assassins are picking them off one-by-one.

"This first serial in Dark Corridor, The Red Circle, is one that I've wanted to do for a long time," said Tommaso. "A comic book inspired by old gangster films, but one where the male archetypes are fatally removed from power by the women who usually only serve as mothers, lovers and/or damsels in distress in those stories."

Out on August 5th (Diamond Code JUN150499 if any retailers want to up orders),here's a look ahead at what's coming.
