Acclaimed writer/artist Becky Cloonan (Southern Cross, Batman, Gotham Academy) will release a trade paperback edition of her award-winning trilogy of short stories By Chance or Providence this July from Image Comics.
By Chance or Providence contains Wolves, The Mire, and Demeter, with all-new colors by Lee Loughridge, as well as a sketchbook/illustration section. These stories cast a spell of hypnotic melancholy, weaving their way through medieval landscapes of ancient curses and terrible truths that will haunt you long after you’ve set them down.
“Out of all the comics I’ve worked on, the stories in By Chance or Providence remain some of the most personal, the closest to my heart. I’m so happy to have the chance to publish them with Image, this time as a “director’s cut,” with lush colors by Lee Loughridge. I hope one day I can return to these characters and spend more time in this world, but until then…” – Becky Cloonan
The By Chance or Providence trade paperback arrives in comic book stores Wednesday, July 26th and bookstores Tuesday, August 1st.
