(W) Dan Watters (A/CA) Dani
SERIES PREMIERE! Cars! Guns! Entropy! Chased by an unstoppable killer, Izzy Tyburn has decided that if the world won't have her in it, it can have nothing of her at all. She's re-treading her life, leaving nothing but burned rubber, ash, and the sun-scorched bones of those who get in her way. Join writer DAN WATTERS (Sandman Universe: Lucifer, LIMBO), artist DANI (2000AD, Girl with No Name), and colorist BRAD SIMPSON (JESUSFREAK, MCMLXXV) on a road trip through a blood-splattered life.

"It's a gleeful of literary grindhouse comic that brings to mind Milligan's Arthouse Pulp and notes of Pretty Deadly. Out in August. Pre-order now." -Kieron Gillen

"A Lynchian crime chase desert noir fever dream with its own messed up internal logic. Fun." -Rob Williams

"An acid drenched road trip, seeping violence and weirdness of the best kind. Definitely one to check out." -Ollie Masters

"Gorgeous and odd and very much its own unique monster. I am jealous at its filthy strangeness." -Ivan Brandon

"A gore-splattered-but poetic-road trip with one of the strangest stripper scenes in comics." -John Harris Dunning

"Dreamlike, mythic, relentless and strange." -Kurt Busiek

"Excellent. Like finding a weird Alex Cox meets Jodorowsky road movie you didn't know existed. Literate, full of ideas & complimented by Dani's Guéra meets Pope-ish art." -Iain Laurie

"Pure Doom. Watters spins a fantastic Kerouac-Ian fever dream with Dani dropping some story chops, solid gesture and moody blacks. It's a great hook that will take you Under. Coffin Bound Rules!" -Andy Belanger

"Your lessons of life delivered at the end of a muzzle by a choir of grindhouse philosophers laced with the wisdom of dead birds. I can hardly think of another story so fully infused with Dan Watters and Dani aesthetic." -Ram V

"Dani is quite a discovery: the work is very inventive and actually very careful but the line is alive and organic-the ink just spills down and branches into the right places. And the language style Watters launches here is just wonderful-I summon Milch because it's eccentric and neo-antique like his DEADWOOD speech, rippling with character and drunken with its own pleasure... Coffin Bound is a damned joy." -Warren Ellis

"Coffin Bound is a distillate of madness. A slice of apocalyptic dreamtime cut with engine smoke, acid nihilism and dirty juju. This is some top-class necrofuel, my friends, and you need it in your brain-tank pronto." -Si Spurrier

"Coffin Bound is a comic with a strong pulse that bleeds all over your hands while reading. You should give it a read." -Declan Shalvey

"So fun! Dani's art is gorgeous (as always!) and Brad Simpsons' colours are ridiculously nice. I just want moreeee." -Emmeline Pidgen

"Call your local comic shop now. Make sure they get this for you. Trust me." -Matthew Rosenberg
