PORTLAND, Ore. 8.5.2019 — The highly anticipated new series Coffin Bound #1 by Dan Watters (Sandman Universe: Lucifer) and artist Dani (2000AD, Girl with No Name) with colorist Brad Simpson (JESUSFREAK, MCMLXXV), letterer Aditya Bidikar, and designer Emma Price, is being rushed back to print ahead of this week’s release.
The upcoming issue is scheduled to hit shelves this Wednesday, August 7 and—due to increasing demand—will ship sold-out at the distributor level.
Cars! Guns! Entropy! Coffin Bound follows Izzy Tyburn, who is chased by an unstoppable killer and has decided that if the world won’t have her in it, it can have nothing of her at all. She’s re-treading her life, leaving nothing but burned rubber, ash, and the sun-scorched bones of those who get in her way.
Ride shotgun on an unforgettable road trip through blood-splattered, grindhouse action best described as Bitch Planet and Mad Max: Fury Road set in the dark, twisted fantasy world of Sandman.
Coffin Bound #1 second printing (Diamond Code JUN198336) hits stores on Wednesday, August 28. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, August 12.
Coffin Bound #2 (Diamond Code JUL190117) hits stores on Wednesday, September 11. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, August 19.
Select praise for Coffin Bound:
"Wholly original. Fresh concepts and characters pop up on almost every page, courtesy of Watters’ mind and Dani’s art. This is a series to keep your eye on." —Entertainment Weekly
"It's a gleeful of literary grindhouse comic that brings to mind Milligan's Arthouse Pulp and notes of Pretty Deadly. Out in August. Pre-order now." —Kieron Gillen
"Dani is quite a discovery: the work is very inventive and actually very careful but the line is alive and organic—the ink just spills down and branches into the right places. And the language style Watters launches here is just wonderful—I summon Milch because it's eccentric and neo-antique like his Deadwood speech, rippling with character and drunken with its own pleasure... Coffin Bound is a damned joy." —Warren Ellis
“A beautiful and brutal debut that's as bewildering as it is exciting. Coffin Bound could be the sleeper hit of 2019 that only the cool kids know about.” —Comic Book Resources
“When you crack open the comic that you feel like you’ve entered Neil Gaiman’s iconic fantasy world.” —Bleeding Cool
"A Lynchian crime chase desert noir fever dream with its own messed up internal logic. Fun." —Rob Williams
"An acid drenched road trip, seeping violence and weirdness of the best kind. Definitely one to check out." —Ollie Masters
"Gorgeous and odd and very much its own unique monster. I am jealous at its filthy strangeness." —Ivan Brandon
"A gore-splattered—but poetic—road trip with one of the strangest stripper scenes in comics." —John Harris Dunning
"Dreamlike, mythic, relentless and strange." —Kurt Busiek
"Excellent. Like finding a weird Alex Cox meets Jodorowsky road movie you didn't know existed. Literate, full of ideas & complimented by Dani's Guéra meets Pope-ish art." —Iain Laurie
"Pure Doom. Watters spins a fantastic Kerouac-Ian fever dream with Dani dropping some story chops, solid gesture and moody blacks. It's a great hook that will take you Under. Coffin Bound Rules!" —Andy Belanger
"Your lessons of life delivered at the end of a muzzle by a choir of grindhouse philosophers laced with the wisdom of dead birds. I can hardly think of another story so fully infused with Dan Watters and Dani aesthetic." —Ram V
"Coffin Bound is a distillate of madness. A slice of apocalyptic dreamtime cut with engine smoke, acid nihilism and dirty juju. This is some top-class necrofuel, my friends, and you need it in your brain-tank pronto." —Si Spurrier
"Coffin Bound is a comic with a strong pulse that bleeds all over your hands while reading. You should give it a read." —Declan Shalvey
"So fun! Dani's art is gorgeous (as always!) and Brad Simpsons' colours are ridiculously nice. I just want moreeee." —Emmeline Pidgen
"Call your local comic shop now. Make sure they get this for you. Trust me." —Matthew Rosenberg
