PORTLAND, OR, 03/09/2018 — Writer Sean Lewis (THE FEW, SAINTS) and artist Caitlin Yarsky will collect the first four issues of their dark fantasy series COYOTES this April.
In a dusty desert town on the southern border of the United States, women are going missing. Detective Frank Coffey is called in to investigate—and finds Red, a 13-year-old girl with a sword and a mission: to murder the werewolves stalking the border and picking women off one by one.
It’s Kill Bill meets The Howling in the cutthroat world of COYOTES, where nothing is ever as it seems.
COYOTES, VOL. 1 (ISBN: 978-1-5343-0647-9, Diamond code: JAN180663) hits comic book shops Wednesday, April 11th and bookstores Tuesday, April 17th. It is available for preorder via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, Indigo, and Books-A-Million.
Select praise for COYOTES:
“Mixing myth, Mexican culture, and murderous teenage girls, COYOTES is the perfect
revenge fantasy for today’s world.” —CBR
“COYOTES is magical, dark, strange, and beautiful. A multi-faceted storyline and
gorgeous, nuanced artwork combines to create a world full of real fears and real
courage alongside elements of fantasy and horror.” —Comicosity
“COYOTES is a thrilling, bone-chilling read that will keep you turning pages and
begging for more. It’s vastly different from most other comics on the shelf today and it’s
clear that whatever is in store for these characters, you don’t want to miss a single
issue.” —Rogues Portal
“A neat spin on a few different story formulas, and Caitlin Yarsky has just the right
artistic style—the monsters pop and menace while the main characters always seem a
little physically vulnerable.” —The Oregonian
“Part Kung Fu movie, part twisted fairy tale, COYOTES is a thoroughly original new
series.” —Big Comic Page
“COYOTES #1 is a brilliant foray into paranormal action/horror. With an interesting lead
and supporting cast, as well as a breakneck plot, fans of Urban Fantasy need to
read this series.” —Comics Verse
“Lewis and Yarsky's book is deep and beautiful even when it is trafficking in images of
horrific violence. Almost every panel has a sensuousness to it, a languid sense of
motion and grace until it is interrupted by tragedy and horror.” —NJ.com
