Stray Bullets: Sunshine and Roses Offers a New Path of Violence


David Lapham can't stay away from random acts of violence. Normally, that's a bad thing, but in his case not so much, as the violence comes in the form of Stray Bullets. Image Comics is revisiting the familiar universe with a brand new story called Stray Bullets: Sunshine and Roses, launching January 21. The new story will center around violence, love, and the bad decisions made when characters find themselves in over their heads and ensnared in seedy, illegal dealings.

In Stray Bullets: Sunshine and Roses, the Baltimore underworld is falling apart at the seams and blood has been spilt. Where and when things went to hell in a handbasket can be traced back to a time a few years earlier, when a man named Harry ran the city, Spanish Scott and Monster enforced the rules, and an insecure young man name Orson met a wild and crazy girl named Beth. The two together cooked up the boldest, most outlandish, and just about the stupidest plan ever devised—a plan to steal a whole lot of Harry’s money and drugs and exact a little revenge along the way.

"We were torn for a long time on whether to ever go back and tell this story, but the lure of getting Beth, Orson, and Nina together again was just too strong,” said Lapham. “They demanded it, really. It's going to be off-the-hook nuts.”

Stray Bullets: Sunshine and Roses #1 (Diamond Code NOV140580) arrives in stores this January 21 and will be available for $3.50. Full press release below.
