COLD BODIES OGN
Years ago, Denise Stokes was the sole survivor of the brutal Winter Man massacre, in which several young adults were slaughtered during a powerful blizzard in Wisconsin. Now, in present day, Denise has tried to bury the past behind her, while the world around her has become obsessed with the murders through a popular film franchise called Snow Day. And as the anniversary of the killings approaches, Denise finds herself in a dark place as she begins to see the Winter Man show up again and the difference between what’s real and what isn’t begins to collapse around her.
Praise for Calamity Kate:
“Corin Howell’s artwork on Calamity Kate is popping with energy and Mags Visaggio
imbues the characters with life. This book is fun, clever and eye-catching!“
“Visaggio is a REAL visceral, dare I say, important voice in comics.
Kate is another fantastic, fun creation and I’m all in the for the ride!!“
–Brian Michael Bendis
“Calamity Kate is a chaotic sword lesbian with a dashing smile and
we’re all going to fall in love with this gay disaster from page one.”
