Bestselling, Eisner Award-nominated artist Sanford Greene pays homage to popular Hayao Miyazaki film, My Neighbor Totoro, in Bitter Root #6 written by David F. Walker and Chuck Brown. The new story arc of Bitter Root kicks off with issue #6 today and will feature the work of new colorist Sofie Dodgson.
In Bitter Root #6, the monster-fighting Sangerye family returns for another adventure. Loved ones once thought lost forever have returned—though the bliss of this family reunion doesn’t last for long. Cullen has changed, and everyone is concerned. But they’ll need all the help they can get, as a new threat has arrived on Earth…
Nominated for multiple awards—including the Eisner and the Ringo—and hailed as one of 2019’s “Best New Series” by Entertainment Weekly—Bitter Root is currently in development as a film from producer Ryan Coogler and Legendary.
The Bitter Root series takes place in the 1920s while the Harlem Renaissance is in full swing and follows the Sangerye Family. Once the greatest family of monster hunters in the world, the Sangeryes must move beyond the tragedies of the past, or be forced to sit back and watch an unimaginable evil ravage the human race.
Bitter Root #6 is also available for purchase across many digital platforms, including the official Image Comics iOS app, Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play. Fans can also subscribe to receive the series delivered by mail within the domestic U.S. on Image Direct.
Bitter Root #6 Variant Cover C (seen below) by Greene (Diamond Code DEC198586) will be available through Power Comics.
