James Oâ€™Barr weaves another dark adventure for his legendary character
Proof positive that black wings of vengeance never cease their flapping, James Oâ€™Barr is back with another taut, dark The Crow series, THE CROW: CURARE.
When retired cop Joe Salk canâ€™t shake a little girlâ€™s unsolved murder, his life unravels. Alone in the shambles of his former life, his obsessions with justice and revenge his only propellants, the shadowy spirit of vengeance, and the young victim reach out to him. Over three-issues this June, fans will see just how well The Crowâ€™s supernatural heat can thaw a cold case.
â€œIt was a great return to form for James Oâ€™Barr on the previous The Crow: Skinning the Wolves miniseries, and seeing him tackle a present-day tale feels even more vital,â€ said Chris Ryall, IDWâ€™s Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief. â€œ
Written and lettered by Oâ€™Barr, featuring art by Antoine DodÃ© over Oâ€™Barrâ€™s breakdowns, THE CROW: CURARE is bathed in furious darkness, but maintains The Crowâ€™s signature quest for solace and hope.
Issue one will feature a painted wraparound cover by Oâ€™Barr, as well as covers by DodÃ©, and painter Miran Kim, too.
