PORTLAND, Ore. 6.25.2020 — Breakout hit That Texas Blood by critically acclaimed Criminal colorist and first time solo artist Jacob Phillips and writer Chris Condon is being rushed back to print in order to keep up with overwhelming demand. The new neo-noir crime series is perhaps best described as Southern Bastards and True Grit meets Breaking Bad and puts a contemporary spin on the Western genre.
That Texas Blood kicks off when the search for a casserole dish leads to a dark and tense confrontation on Sheriff Joe Bob Coates’ 70th birthday.
Coates has always lived in Fort Lehane. He's always been in Ambrose County. It's always been in his blood. It's a Texas thing. But the crimes don't stop. And they don't get easier.
For some reason... they keep getting worse. And worse. And... Well. It's Texas. And Joe Bob is tough. Maybe he's tough enough to fight it. To last. It's in his blood, after all. That Texas Blood.
That Texas Blood #1, second printing (Diamond Code APR208642) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, July 22.
That Texas Blood #2 Cover A by Phillips (Diamond Code APR200289) and That Texas Blood #2 Cover B by Duncan Fegredo (Diamond Code MAR200030) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, July 29.
That Texas Blood is also available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
Select praise for That Texas Blood:
“Chris and Jacob pull off something remarkable here. A vivid and bright story that nails a thorough sense of foreboding and darkness. A shocking amount of talent for a duo so fresh to comics!” —Chip Zdarsky, Sex Criminals, Daredevil
“A delightfully dark debut.” —Nerdist
“Blood and cruelty spill into the kindness and manners that provide Coates’ town a quaint, charming appeal... That Texas Blood is a ghost story and a Western, and it questions whether there is a difference between the two. As it builds upon the legacy of other modern Westerns, which raised similar questions, it’s not difficult to see how the series may stand comfortably upon the shoulders of giants.” —ComicBook.com
