PORTLAND, Ore. 5.18.2021 — The Eisner and Ringo Award winning series Bitter Root by Chuck Brown, David F. Walker, and Sanford Greene will feature a special commemorative cover in celebration of Juneteenth. This Bitter Root #14 cover will feature new art by Greene and be in stores this June.
“Team Bitter Root has always been committed to acknowledging a very rich history within the work we do, and this commemorative Juneteenth cover is our way of celebrating an occasion that speaks to the heart and soul of what this series is about and the culture we honor,” said Walker.
Bitter Root is an ongoing comic book series following the Sangerye family, who once were known as the greatest monster hunters of all time and specialized in curing the souls of those infected by hate. But those days are fading. A terrible tragedy has claimed most of the family, leaving the surviving cousins divided between by the desire to cure monsters or to kill them. Now, though, there’s a new breed of monster loose on the streets of Harlem, and the Sangerye family must either come together or watch the human race fall to untold evil.
The series is being adapted for film with Academy Award winning actress Regina King (director of the DGA Award, NAACP Image Award, and Academy Award nominated One Night in Miami) set to direct and produce.
Bitter Root #14 Cover A by Greene (Diamond Code APR210277) and Bitter Root #14 Cover B “Juneteenth” by Greene (Diamond Code APR210278) will both be available on Wednesday, June 23.
Bitter Root is also available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
