In BOOM! Studios newest original mini-series, acclaimed writer Ollie Masters (The Kitchen) and artist Tyler Jenkins (Peter Panzerfaust) don't pull any punches. In Snow Blind, family ties run deep, but family secrets run deeper…
Quoted by Warren Ellis, Snow Blind is:
"An elevated crime story that feels like it should be the best indie movie of the year."
The story follows high school teen Teddy, who has never seen eye-to-eye with his dad, but he never suspected that he might not be the man he thought he was. His life in a sleepy Alaskan suburb turns upside-down when he innocently posts a photo of his dad online that quickly goes viral, only to learn he and his family are in the Witness Protection Program. But what if his dad's reasons for going into the program aren't as innocent as he says?
BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon shared some thoughts on the series:
"How much do you really know about the pasts of your parents? In Snow Blind, Ollie and Tyler have crafted a tense, intimate mystery that plays with that very question. This suspenseful narrative, paired with beautiful hand-painted watercolors, make for a thrilling Alaskan crime story that's one of the most unique titles we'll publish this year."
Here's a bit of extra Snow Blind artwork to admire from Jenkins. The watercolor-esque style is quite spectacular.
