That Texas Blood duo—Chris Condon and Jacob Phillips—returns to Ambrose County, Texas with a five-issue miniseries spin-off set 150 years ago. The Enfield Gang Massacrewill be a six issue tale is set to launch in August from Image Comics.
Gunslinging action meets dark frontier drama in this original Western thriller, as Montgomery Enfield and his gang of outlaws find themselves in the crosshairs of an aging Texas Ranger and a newborn county that’s hungry for law.
Here’s the genesis of the series, as explained by Condon:
“Way back in That Texas Blood issue seven’s back matter, I mentioned ‘the Enfield Gang’s reign of terror in the 1870s’ which ended in a ‘shootout.’ That got Jacob’s imagination going and he wondered if we’d ever see that (or, more importantly, if he’d ever draw it). And, well, now we’re here. That may have been the catalyst, but the truth is that I’ve always wanted to tell the story of the origin of Ambrose County, a birth fraught with violence and terror. This miniseries is a treat for our seasoned readers but it is also an absolutely fantastic spot to jump in as this is a tabula rasa—we have a new set of characters and a county that is nigh-unrecognizable. At its core, this is a story about the truth—how fragile it is—and how whoever wins writes its future.”
The Enfield Gang Massacre #1 out on Wednesday, August 9th from Image Comics.
