Webcomics have never really taken hold with the general population as much as other mediums have. It's a shame too, as there are some top-notch creators out there doing equally exciting work on webcomics. One of those creators is Cory Levine, whose Bowery Boys is a tale of politically and socially divided early America. Fortunately for readers who've missed out to this point, Dark Horse is planning to publish the first five seasons of the series in Bowery Boys: Our Fathers, featuring artwork by Ian Bertram.
“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.”
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?
Bowery Boys: Our Fathers is on sale August 5 in comic shops and August 18 in bookstores everywhere. Full press release below.
