Staff Picks (July14): Pariah, Missouri
Jun 18, 2014
Publisher: Salazar Entertainment
The early American frontier was a harsh reality for most of those who lived it, but most of those early pioneers still never saw the kinds of strange and unexplained phenomena that the folks of Pariah, Missouri will face.
Hiram is an undercover Pinkerton agent sent to the frontier town of Pariah with the task of flushing out the criminal enterprise that’s made the town its home. For a single agent like Hiram, the mission is difficult enough, but the local criminal community may not be the worst element hiding in the shadows. Evil from “the other side” has come to town in the form of entertainment and everyone in the town is vulnerable to its spell. Amid the battle between the law and the lawless, an even more terrifying battle rages between life on Earth and the darkness beyond.
Andres Salazar and Jose Luis Pescador team up to bring readers the first beautifully rendered volume in their Pariah, Missouri graphic novel series that reveals the haunting history of the town and its inhabitants. In the land of indie comics, it seems there’s a new creative team in town.
