Hailed as “a noir treat in monochromatic colored splendor,” “a breath of fresh air,” and “beautiful raw poetry,” Dan Schkade, Jesse Snavlin and JD Faith’s San Hannibal took the comic book world by surprise in 2014 with its cyberpunk spin on classic noir. Over the course of five issues, readers followed hard-luck private detective Ira Avery as he risked life, limb and sanity trying to solve the mysterious disappearance of photojournalist Savannah Loy, uncovering the twisted secrets of the city of San Hannibal along the way.
On May 27, San Hannibal: The City of Love and Fear (Diamond order code MAR151497) will collect those five issues in one paperback edition, offering new readers a window into the electric-charged world of San Hannibal, while providing existing fans with a handsome volume to conveniently revisit the twists and turns of this neon-painted mystery. The trade paperback collection, which sports a new cover by Schkade, will also feature 10 pages of never-before-seen bonus material, including character studies, story notes, cover sketches and a few surprises.
San Hannibal: The City of Love and Fear will be available on May 27 in comic book stores and booksellers for $14.99, as well as through digital platforms such as Comixology, DriveThruComics and ComicsPlus for $4.99. To find a comic store near you, visit comicshoplocator.com.
