Declan Shalvey is a generous man. He and Gavin Fullerton have been selling their ashcan of his upcoming Bog Bodies graphic novel at recent UK and Ireland comic conventions, and they've been selling fast too. But for Christmas Day, as well as the following message, he has provided a digital copy of the ashcan to all the readers of his mailing list. Asking not share it with anyone else. And to tell people what they thought of it.
An Irish gangster, on the run after a job gone wrong, stumbles upon a young woman lost in the Dublin mountains. Injured and unarmed, the unlikely pair must try to evade their pursuers and survive the desolate bog that has served as burial grounds for unspeakable murder throughout history. A cold and poignant story of crime, survival, and regret.
Bog Bodies will be published by Image Comics in April. As to Shalvey's mailing list, you can sign up here and maybe find your way to getting a copy of the ashcan as well… just for you though, okay? And tell us all what you think…
Merry Christmas, Declan. Most generous.
