Writer David F. Walker and artist Sanford Greene, the creative team behind Marvel Comics' Power Man and Iron Fist, are reuniting for a new ongoing series at Image Comics titled Bitter Root. Joined by co-writer Chuck Brown, Bitter Root is set during the Harlem Renaissance and follows a family of monster hunters who are the world's only hope against supernatural forces.
“Bitter Root is going to be unlike any comic book people have seen,” Walker said in a statement at Rose City Comic Con in Portland. “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."
"Bitter Root is a dream project," Brown added. "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."
Walker, Greene and Brown's Bitter Root arrives in 2018.
