You know the old adage: a picture is worth a thousand words. If that’s the case, the words evoked by the cover for Vindication #1 are strong, hard, and powerful. Image Comics have released a first look at the issue below, so check out the beginnings of this all too real and relevant story.
TIMELY NEW COMIC BOOK SERIES VINDICATION EXPLORES RACE AND THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM THIS FEBRUARY
The topical new series will launch during Black History Month,early sneak preview revealed
PORTLAND, Ore., 01/10/2019 — Writer MD Marie and artists Carlos Miko and Dema Jr. disrupt the status quo with an all-new comic book series exploring power in the criminal justice system in Vindication. The series will launch from Image/Top Cow this February, in time for Black History Month.
In turbulent times, when cops are often portrayed as enemies of the people, Detective Chip Christopher walks the blurred blue line between racism and due diligence in order to do his job. And right now, it’s his job to investigate Turn, a young black man with a sketchy past who was previously exonerated of a similar slaying.
“So many beautiful colors are dimmed by myopia,” said MD Marie. “I want to provide a lens that lets in a little light.”
Wrapped in the intensity and socio-political implications of The Hate U Give and Fruitvale Station, readers won't want to miss Vindication's timely and evocative cat-and-mouse story about a cop bent on catching a murderer.
Vindication #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on February 6.
