Eisner-nominated writer Chuck Brown (Bitter Root) joins forces with Italian artist Prenzy (#Like4Like) and letterer Clayton Cowles (The Wicked + The Divine) to create a hyper-violent, hyper-stylized ongoing series On the Stump for Image Comics this February.
According to its press release, On the Stump, tells the tale deep-rooted in American history that dates back to 1868 when a pivotal presidential debate turned violent. As a result, in today’s society, elections are decided by highly publicized hand-to-hand combat in arenas called Stumps.
Unfortunately, the violence doesn’t end in the ring, and powerful people can still get away with murder. That is when our protagonists, prominent Senator Jack Hammer and FBI Agent Anna Bell Lister team up to put an end to it and bring it all down.
Come February, the tagline will read that the campaign trail will be paved with blood and broken bones.
“This the rawest story I’ve ever written,” said Brown. “It literally doesn’t hold any punches. Having Prenzy and Clayton bring it to life has been a dream come true.”
Prenzy further added: “This series has everything I love drawing and the fact that I could also colour it helped me make it even more peculiar. Brown created a great story and Cowles was able to give the pages their rightful value. I can say this work will impress the readers… like a punch on the face!”
