If you’re upset that we are currently without Rich Tommaso’s Spy Seal– which is currently on hiatus from Image Comics – then you will be happy to know that there is a new series coming from the critically-acclaimed cartoonist.
Dry County takes place in Miami during the late 90s, and follows the story of Lou Rossi as he’s forced to play amateur detective to find the missing new love in his life. The story seems like it will focus not only on the mysterious disappearance but also the time and culture of the world in the late 90s in what looks to be the start of a new series of crime stories.
Miami. Late 1990s—but still suffering a hangover from the 1980s. Young Gen-Xer Lou Rossi has fallen for a lady, and fallen hard. So when she goes missing, he’ll have to play amateur detective to get her back.
“Lou Rossi wants to grow up—he’s finally of legal age to drink, so all he needs now is a steady day job and a serious relationship,” said Tommaso. “He seems to find the latter in Janet Laughton, while out doing his laundry one night. But the drama that comes with his involvement with her turns his new, ordered lifestyle upside down, having to deal with kidnappers, teenage gangsters, threatening letters, and Janet’s dangerous ex-boyfriends.”
You can check out the preview of Dry Country below, which looks to be the first of the Lou Rossi stories we can expect from Tommaso:
Dry County is set to hit shelves in March 2018. The next chapter of Spy Seal, titled “Flight of the Golden Bells”, will kick off in Fall 2018.
