Bog Bodies is a survival horror comic, that Shalvey says is set in Dublin’s remote mountains. He also links to an official site for the comic that, although incomplete, does give readers a look at the full solicit text:
“A cold, poignant story of crime, survival, and regret, Bog Bodies follows an Irish gangster on the run after a job gone wrong who encounters a young woman lost in the Dublin mountains. Injured and unarmed, the unlikely pair must try to evade their pursuers and survive the desolate bog that has served as burial grounds for unspeakable murder throughout history.”
Based on that, Bog Bodies sounds perfectly on brand for Shalvey. Keep an eye out for the graphic novel to hit shelves on March 4, 2020 and bookstores later on March 10, 2020. It’s available now for preorder at a variety of stores, including Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, IndieBound, Indigo and Amazon. For now, keep an eye here on The Beat for more news as it appears and scroll down for a look at the spooky cover.
