Fantasy Meets Western in the New Image Comics Series Above Snakes

Image Comics has announced a new fantasy western series titled Above Snakes. The new series comes from writer Sean Lewis, artist Hayden Sherman, and letterer Hassan OtsmaneElhaou. The genre-mashup five-issue series will arrive in comic shops this July.

The publisher’s description for Above Snakes reads:

“In Above Snakes, readers are introduced to a story that’s equal parts Deadwood-style Western and Neil Gaiman-esque fantasy. It’s the story of Dirt, a man seeking vengeance for his murdered wife with nothing but a talking vulture to prod him on. Above Snakes is a fast and furious explosion of Western tropes and American vengeance that explores where our rage can take us.”

Lewis talks about the inspiration of the limited series, saying:

“After two sci-fi books with Hayden, they presented a new challenge. What about a Western? I thought of all the old movies my grandpa watched. I wasn’t sure how to do that. But I did know how to blow it up. And I did know how to write about vengeance. Hayden and Hassan have jsut elevated that to an ungodly level. It’s a fun book.”

Sherman added:

Above Snakes is classic western gunslinging fun that’s been made all the better by Sean’s distinct voice that, as always, immediately adds to each genre he steps into. At the same time, it’s been a blast making something new out of the well loved visual language that comes with the old west.”

Above Snakes #1 will be available at your favorite local comic shop and digitally on July 13th, 2022. Check out the preview below:
