Royal City 1 (March 2017)

Royal City #1

After the first issue, which ends on a reveal (of sorts), Jeff Lemire seems to be setting Royal City up as an American tragedy. The small American city losing its manufacturing power and so on and so on. The series will be the story of one extended family coping. There’s a thinly written harpy mom, an ambitious daughter, a deadbeat son, a successful white male novelist son, a suffering dad. Lemire’s got a solid visual pace for the comic, but so far there’s no meat on the story.
