New ongoing series written and illustrated by Jeff Lemire (Descender, A.D., Sweet Tooth).
Royal City charts the lives, loves, and losses of a troubled family and a vanishing town across three decades. Patrick Pike, a fading literary star who reluctantly returns to the once-thriving factory town where he grew up, is quickly drawn back into the dramas of his two adult siblings, his overbearing mother, and his brow-beaten father, all of whom are still haunted by different versions of his youngest brother, Tommy, who drowned decades ago.
Royal City is a return to the literary and thematic territory of Lemire’s breakthrough graphic novel Essex County and is his most ambitious, and most personal, project to date.
