Old Wounds comic coverOLD WOUNDS, Russell Lissau and John Bivens’ four-issue comic book murder-mystery, has grabbed the attention of critics and readers alike with its tale of a man whose past literally comes back to haunt him. We’ve been right there with retired vigilante Michael Lane as he’s suffered the loss of his ex-wife and old friends.

In the third issue of this gripping mini-series, the investigation into those explosive attacks leads to Lane’s old enemy, Tommy Blast. But could this deranged mob enforcer have orchestrated the murders from inside his prison cell? Or has the evidence trail gone cold? Readers will find out in this shocking penultimate chapter that is not to be missed.

“A lot of this works for me for two reasons,” wrote Johanna Draper Carlson from Comics Worth Reading. “One: Lissau does a terrific job building suspense. As the series continues, he knows just how much information to dish out to keep the reader involved. The second reason is the art. Bivens’ style is scratchy, noir-ish, and toned to indicate many shades of grey.”

OLD WOUNDS #3 will be available on June 24 in comic book stores or directly from our website for $2.99, and is currently available digitally from ComiXology, ComicsPlus and DriveThruComics for 99 cents. To find a comic store near you, visit
