Dark Horse Comics is set to publish a stunning hardcover collection of Cory Levine’s tale of a politically and socially divided early America in Bowery Boys: Our Fathers!
Penned by Cory Levine, with artwork by rising-star artists Ian Bertram (Detective Comics, Batman Eternal) and Brent McKee (Outlaw Territory), Bowery Boys: Our Fathers will collect the first five seasons of the acclaimed web series.
When his father is framed for murder, immigrant Nikolaus McGovern rallies a motley crew of street youths in a rip-roaring coming-of-age adventure based in antebellum New York City!
In a story set against a backdrop of rampant political corruption, vicious street gangs, nascent labor reform, and ardent xenophobia, can Niko and his friends triumph in a life-and-death battle against their oppressors, or will they succumb to the engines of socioeconomic progress?
“When we set out to create Bowery Boys, we did so with grand ambition and an absolute refusal to compromise on quality,” said Levine. “No publisher better aligns with our creative philosophy than Dark Horse, and we’re thrilled to bring this work into print with such dedicated and capable partners.”
Bowery Boys: Our Fathers is on sale August 5 in comic shops and August 18 in bookstores everywhere!
