Set against the backdrop of 1949 New York City, Detective Drake Harper searches for a torturous serial killer known as “The Vulture” while battling his own personal demons in this gritty noir thriller.
Fans of the noir genre and detective/serial killer stories will find plenty to chew on in this five issue miniseries. The city itself becomes a living, breathing character coinciding at times with actual historical events. Nothing is held back in this “Adults Only” graphic novel featuring the surrealistic multimedia art style of David Hollenbach.
Color also plays a role in the storytelling of “Black of Heart”, starting with a base black & white with only splashes of prime colors in the first chapter. As events unfold throughout the series, the artwork reflects these changes, introducing more and more saturation right up to the heart-stopping conclusion!
The first two chapters of Black of Heart are available NOW in the Assailant Store!!
