Today The Beat has an exclusive preview of Undone by Blood, or The Other Side of Eden #3, which is due out May 19 from AfterShock Comics.
This issue is the latest in the second volume of this book, which is written by the team of Zac Thompson and Lonnie Nadler, illustrated by Sami Kivelä, colored by Jason Wordie, and letterer by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou.
The premise for the series is essentially that of a modern day western with metafictional overtones. In both volumes — which are stand alone — we get a storyline about a character in one time period who is reading a book set in the Old West. The themes of the book start to overlap with what’s happening in the present, and great comics ensue. Whereas the first volume of this series followed a young woman on a quest to avenge her murdered family, the new storyline in the second volume is all about a heist. Both of these books are Very Good.
And you can now check out four interior pages from the next issue exclusively via The Beat below…enjoy!
