Meet Joe Death and the Graven Image

 

 

Salvation by Death? It’s a New Gig for Him but He’ll Give it a Try.

Somewhere between Mike Mignola, A Fistful of Dollars, and Johnny Cash’s Ghost Riders in the Sky, rides the gray man, consequential king, Joseph Bones, Shadow of Death! A lone gun story silhouetted against the surreal desert valley where ghost and ghoul, witch and prophet, mystery and dream, ebb in and out. Joe Death and the Graven Image wanders the tombstoned road, poking at the fabric of life, loss, retribution, redemption, and the keys to paradise.

The cleanup of the massacred town isn’t Joe’s first rodeo, but the one life taken by the bandit Scary Harry is. Can he and his friends outsmart Harry’s hellraisers and win back the babe? Life from death? The ultimate magic trick, restoring Joe to the straight and the narrow?

Debut author and artist Benjamin Schipper dives deep into the reaper’s tale, employing a beautiful and quirky style that gives this macabre odyssey all the heart, humor, and tension essential to a modern masterpiece.
