The Complete Original Comic Book Series
Michael Balistreri, Alex Siquig
Collected here, for the very first time, is the complete critically
acclaimed underground comic book series Black Snow. One of the
earliest comics to appear on the internet, these comics have rarely
been seen in print before.
The comic book that has gone on to inspire several spin-off comic
strips and a graphic novel series relaunch is presented here with all
Black Snow is the story of a failing Detroit super hero and his
group of misfit friends, who inadvertently find themselves caught
up in an evil crime lord's plot to rule the city.
The central figure, Black Snow, is a chain smoking alcoholic
super hero wannabe who has an incredible variety of super powers,
but can't control any of them. He is surrounded by a large ensemble
cast of friends, family, rivals, enemies and plain old acquaintances
who make up the inhabitants of the Motor City.
Part comedy, part drama, with a dash of action, a hint of mystery
and even a splash of romance, this story has something for everyone.
Will Black Snow ever succeed and rise up to become the true hero
he originally set out to be, or will he continue to flounder until
ultimately self destructing?
Only time will tell!
