ComixTribe has announced it is launching Chum, a new mini-series, in April.
written by Ryan K Lindsay with art by Sami Kivela, Chum is a “surf noir story straight off the drugstore paperback rack that will ruin your faith in people, and keep you away from the water.”
“I’ve long loved terse, brutal, pulp pop crime stories,” said writer Ryan K Lindsay in a statement to Major Spoilers. “With one foot in taut paperback vintage like old dime stores delivered and the other foot deep in decades of high quality neo noir comics, CHUM is my flag in this fertile blood soaked ground.
CHUM tells the story of Summer Stanwyck, a woman who feels trapped. She tends bar on the island she grew up on, the local cop is about to become her ex-husband, and she’s wasting time screwing the local reefer kingpin.
But when a bag full of cash and drugs falls into her lap, she sees a way out… and anyone who gets in her way is shark bait.
This is the second collaboration between writer Lindsay and artist Kivela.
Chum arrives in April 2016.
