Dark Horse Comics and 12-Gauge Comics are teaming for Kill Whitey Donovan, a tale of female empowerment and friendship from writer Sydney Duncan and artist Natalie Barahona.
Here is how Dark Horse describes the series:
In Kill Whitey Donovan, after Anna Hoyt’s sister commits suicide, she sets off for Atlanta to kill the man responsible for destroying her family—her fiancé, Jim “Whitey” Donovan. But Anna, a spirited though pampered daughter of a prominent doctor, can’t do it alone. To get through the hell that lay between her Alabama home and Atlanta, she makes a deal with one of the Donovan slaves, Hattie Virgil, who has an agenda of her own. In exchange for a chance at freedom, Hattie, a survivor, will lead this unlikely pair on a quest that will change them both forever.
“I’d written Kill Whitey Donovan as a book about ten years ago in between Gabriel Adam books, fascinated by this notion of how external and internal expectations guide identity. Hattie represented the external struggle and Anna the internal,” said writer Sydney Duncan. “I wanted to explore those ideas on this Inferno-esque journey during the Civil War, which was basically this war for identity and, I thought, the perfect backdrop for the story.”
Kill Whitey Donovan is set to arrive in stores on December 4, 2019.
