Here are upcoming titles, now being solicited in comics stores through Diamond Previews for a October 2018 release.
Of Dust & Blood: The Battle at Little Big Horn
by Val Mayerik & Jim Berry
This thrilling tale details the day of The Battle at The Little Big Horn through the eyes of Greenhaw, a 7th Cavalry scout on one side of the battlefield, and Slowhawk, a young Lakota warrior on the other. Featuring appearances of Sitting Bull, G.A. Custer, and Crazy Horse, as well as generous portions of meticulously researched history on every page, the book’s art has been lauded as “Tremendous… Beautiful. Each panel and page could easily be a piece of solo art hanging on someone’s wall.”
