TOOTH & CLAW ATTACKS THIS NOVEMBER

The Image Expo-announced new series from Kurt Busiek & Benjamin Dewey


TOOTH & CLAW, the exciting new series from bestselling writer Kurt Busiek (Marvels, Astro City), artist Benjamin Dewey (I Was the Cat, Tragedy Series), Eisner-winning colorist Jordie Bellaire (THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS, PRETTY DEADLY), and letterer John Roshell of Comicraft that was announced at Image Expo in July, will launch on November 5.


The highly anticipated fantasy epic can best be described as Conan meets Kamandi with a Game of Thrones-style storytelling experience. In TOOTH & CLAW, a secret conclave of wizards brings a legendary champion forward through time from the forgotten past to save the world—with disastrous consequences. Featuring swords, sorcery, beast-wizards, gods, sprawling animal empires, golems of radioactive decay, crystalline badlands, con women, ancient armories, young love, mystery, blood and death and treachery and destiny… TOOTH & CLAW is the sprawling, world-building fantasy series readers have been waiting for.

And while the emphasis is on adventure, exploration and a simmering conflict that'll set the world's most revered hero against the gods themselves, the adventurers won't be the only ones breaking new ground. TOOTH & CLAW is Busiek's first Mature Readers series, and he's looking forward to the freedom it offers.

In an exclusive interview with Comic Book Resources, Busiek said, “When Cary Nord and I did Conan, and when Carlos Pacheco and I did Arrowsmith, we kept bumping up against the mature-readers line, and several times had to have the colorist obscure things to avoid nudity or gore or whatever. So on this series, I went in knowing it was going to be a brutal world, where the violence was important, and where I didn't want to tease nudity the way we had to in Conan—I wanted to do the story the way it felt right to me, and if that added up to mature readers, then so be it.

"So the horizon's wide open," he added, "and we'll go wherever the story takes us. It's a series I've been itching to write for years, and it's the book Ben Dewey was born to draw, and we can't wait for it to hit the stands."

TOOTH & CLAW #1 will be available on 11/5 as a double-sized 44 page issue with no ads for only $2.99. It can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code SEP140540.
