PORTLAND, Ore. 05/16/2024 — Eisner Award winning writer Skottie Young and Eisner Award nominated artist Jorge Corona—the team behind Eisner Award nominated Middlewest and Bram Stoker Award nominated The Me You Love In The Dark—have done it again with their white-hot new series launch Ain’t No Grave. The buzzy debut issue of the series instantly sold out at the distributor level and is being rushed back to print this week in order to keep up with customer demand.

“Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who picked up the issue,” said Corona. “We’ve seen some of the positive comments and reactions to the release of the series and it really means the world to us. This is why we do these books and I’m so happy you all are enjoying this with us!”

Ain’t No Grave is best described as a genre-bending, original macabre Western/Fantasy tale for mature readers—an Unforgiven-style journey through a Guillermo Del Toro-esque lens.

Ryder put her violent past behind her when she fell in love and became a mother. But that was before she learned it was all going to be taken away. Now she’ll have to pick up her guns once again and ride to kill the one behind the threat. Who just happens to be Death.

In issue #2, Ryder seeks out Death in the city of Cypress, but quickly realizes that Death is on the hunt for her as well. She’s a wanted woman and every bullet in this dark place is looking to put her in a grave.
