After a well received first run from Image Comics, Dan Watters & Caspar Wijngaard‘s Limbo Volume 1 is due for release in early June. To celebrate, we’re welcoming Dan & Caspar back to Orbital for a signing on Saturday June 4 at 5:30pm, followed by one of our world-famous Director’s Commentaries from 7pm.
“In Limbo, readers meet a detective with no memory, no identity, and no manners, a femme fatale seeking escape from a powerful crime lord, a voodoo queen with a penchant for mixtapes and hi-tops, and a goat-eating TV … Welcome to Dedande City, where good people check under their beds at night and reality is never quite what it seems. Collects LIMBO #1-6.
“Limbo is a noir story set in a world that flatly refuses to adhere to noir conventions,” said Watters. “It’s a straightforward story of a detective trying to solve a crime; he just happens to be doing it in a reality where anything can and will happen, where music is a deadly weapon and you can’t trust your own electronic appliances not to be possessed by minor deities … ”
Wijngaard added: “It’s is a pulp detective novel at its core, but it’s been up all night watching all the bad TV your parents warned you about.”
This surreal new neon-noir miniseries crosses ’50s pulp with an ’80s VHS visual aesthetic drawing from the likes of Carpenter, Cronenberg, and Lynch.”
