New Series ROYAL CITY Coming in March. Order Now!


Hey, this is Jeff Lemire, creator and writer of Descender, Black Hammer, and Sweet
ROYAL CITY is the first ongoing series that I have both written and drawn since Sweet Tooth. It’s definitely my most ambitious and personal project to date, and can’t wait for the book to launch in March.

ROYAL CITY follows Patrick Pike, a fading literary star who reluctantly returns to the once-thriving factory town where he grew up, and is quickly drawn back into the dramas of his two adult siblings, his overbearing mother, and his brow-beaten father, all of whom are still haunted by different versions of his youngest brother, Tommy, who drowned decades ago. What follows is a mysterious journey into the Pike family’s past and into the strange underbelly of the town Patrick grew up in.

The book will combine grounded family drama with a healthy dose of magical realism and mystery, much like my previous books Essex County and The Underwater Welder, and the first chapter will be a double-sized, 56-page issue!

You can pre-order the first issue now at your local comic book store or through an online retailer.
