Dry County Coming to Paperback September

Dry County



From Image Comics—


Collects issues #1-5

Critically acclaimed cartoonist Rich Tommaso (SPY SEAL, Dick Tracy) will release a trade paperback collection of his ‘90s noir series DRY COUNTY this September.

Dry County

Meet Lou Rossi, a Generation X slacker who’s drifting through an unremarkable young adulthood, completely out of step with the rave culture of early-’90s Miami. His humdrum life takes a sharp left turn when he meets—and quickly falls in love with—the young and beautiful Janet Laughton. But when she suddenly vanishes, leaving only a cryptic note behind, Lou will have to pull out all the stops to track her down.

DRY COUNTY (ISBN: 978-1-5343-0830-5, Diamond code: JUN180061) hits comic book shops on Wednesday, September 12th and bookstores on Tuesday, September 18th. It can be pre-ordered via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Indiebound, and Indigo.

Select praise for DRY COUNTY:

“Richly compelling.” —Multiversity Comics

“The best part about DRY COUNTY is…well, everything. The component elements of Tommaso’s new work—the art deco, the pastels, the noir, the unluckiest man in Miami’s paradise—all come together so well, it’s hard to identify any one thing that’s responsible for [its] excellence.” —The Oregonian

“DRY COUNTY has a remarkably addictive quality to it—one you don’t feel creeping up on you. By the time you’ve read the first issue, you’ll certainly read the rest.” —

“DRY COUNTY has both a real sense of place and a strong sense of character that give it depth.” —Uproxx

“DRY COUNTY #1 is unique and refreshing. It has the appeal of an indie comic and the draw, intrigue, and mystery of a crime/detective story.” —Monkeys Fighting Robots
