“Midnight Of The Soul Is A Labor Of Love” New Miniseries From Howard Chaykin

Posted by March 28, 2016 Comment

Image Comics has announced an all-new, noir-infused miniseries entitled Midnight of the Soul. The comic comes from fan-favorite and cult cartoonist Howard Chaykin who has done work on American Flagg! and Satellite Sam.

The story is set in 1950 and follows Joel Breakstone, a former G.I., one of the liberators of Auschwitz, and a walking pile of seriously damaged goods. He hasn’t exhaled a sober breath in five years. However, that all changes when the sheltered life he’s created for himself unravels and he begins the long night that will change his life forever.

Chaykin called the project:

“A dream project I’ve been working on for nearly twenty years…”

I’d say there should be nothing but passion in the pages. If you look at the pages below, you’ll see a strong inner dialogue that begins the comic, a powerful beginning that will surely lead into an emotional comic. I look forward to reading it in a few months.

Midnight of the Soul #1 will hit comic book stores on Wednesday, June 8th. The final order cutoff deadline for comic book retailers is Monday, May 16th.
