BITTER ROOT #14 CELEBRATES JUNETEENTH WITH SPECIAL COMMEMORATIVE COVER

PORTLAND, Ore. 05/18/2021 — The Eisner and Ringo Award winning series Juneteenth Commemorative Cover for Bitter Root #14Bitter Root by Chuck Brown, David F. Walker, and Sanford Greene will feature a special commemorative cover in celebration of Juneteenth. This Bitter Root #14 cover will feature new art by Greene and be in stores this June.

“Team Bitter Root has always been committed to acknowledging a very rich history within the work we do, and this commemorative Juneteenth cover is our way of celebrating an occasion that speaks to the heart and soul of what this series is about and the culture we honor,” said Walker.

Bitter Root is an ongoing comic book series following the Sangerye family, who once were known as the greatest monster hunters of all time and specialized in curing the souls of those infected by hate. But those days are fading. A terrible tragedy has claimed most of the family, leaving the surviving cousins divided between by the desire to cure monsters or to kill them. Now, though, there’s a new breed of monster loose on the streets of Harlem, and the Sangerye family must either come together or watch the human race fall to untold evil. 

The series is being adapted for film with Academy Award winning actress Regina King (director of the DGA Award, NAACP Image Award, and Academy Award nominated One Night in Miami) set to direct and produce.

Bitter Root #14 Cover A by Greene (Diamond Code APR210277) and Bitter Root #14 Cover B “Juneteenth” by Greene (Diamond Code APR210278) will both be available on Wednesday, June 23.

Select praise for Bitter Root:

“Incredibly entertaining.” —Entertainment Weekly

"Historical fiction mixes with supernatural horror, producing a hybrid fantasy world of voodoo spells, mad science, monster Klansmen, and Jazz Age demon hunters wielding steampunk versions of Ghostbusters proton packs... Comics fans will look forward to future volumes of this energetic dark fantasy that effectively mixes thrills and scares." —Publishers Weekly

"Relentless action...a kinetic style." —Library Journal

"The comic is by an all-black creative team and features a predominantly black cast of characters in the 1920s—embracing the black artistic creativity of the Harlem Renaissance but also recognizing the racism of the time." —The Washington Post

"The tragedy and family drama at the heart of Image Comics’ new series Bitter Root may be the most traditional thing about a comic that is, at heart, anything but traditional." —The Hollywood Reporter

“A comic with a clear message, it never feels overtly moralizing, but simply an education as stark and brutal as the rad-as-hell monster-fighting horror that plays out in as the family goes about its work.” —io9

"Puts a monstrous face on bigotry and a beautiful new spin on the Harlem Renaissance." —The Onion's AV Club

"Confident in itself and doesn't need to rely on overwrought high-concept themes. Bitter Root isn't afraid to tackle weighty issues while still having some fun, giving us some new heroes that are much needed in today's world." —ComicBook.com

Bitter Root Coming from Image Comics in 2018
KILLING IS ONE THING… CURING IS ANOTHER IN THE FORTHCOMING BITTER ROOT

Image Comics is pleased to announce at this year’s Rose City Comic Con an all-new ongoing series from David Walker, Chuck Brown, and Sanford Greene that will launch in 2018 titled, BITTER ROOT.

BITTER ROOT is set in 1920s with the Harlem Renaissance in full swing. The new series will follow the Sangerye Family—New York (and the world’s) only hope for salvation from supernatural forces threatening doom and destruction. Once the greatest family of monster hunters in the world, the Sangeryes must move beyond the tragedies of the past, or be forced to sit back and watch an unimaginable evil ravage the human race.

Bitter Root is going to be unlike any comic book people have seen,” said Walker. “We're mixing action and horror, with a cast of characters unique to the medium to tell an epic tale of the Sangerye family and the sacrifices they are willing to make for humanity. I'm excited for this series for several reasons. It gives me the chance to work with Sanford again, Chuck, who is a great co-writer, and Image, which publishes some absolutely amazing comics."

Brown added: "Bitter Root is a dream project. Walker, Greene, and I share the same tastes while bringing our own unique talents and perspectives to the book. Bitter Root takes a classic horror genre and remolds it into something new and eye opening. I haven’t had this much fun creating comics in awhile."
