Description

Once known as the greatest monster hunters of all time,
the Sangerye family specialized in curing the souls of those infected by hate,
but those days are fading. A terrible tragedy has claimed most of the family,
leaving the surviving cousins split between curing monsters and killing them.
Now, with a new breed of monster loose on the streets of Harlem, the Sangerye
family must come together, or watch the human race fall to untold
evil.

Publisher Review

"A comic that's confident in itself and doesn't need to rely on overwrought high-concept themes. Bitter Root isn't afraid to tackle weighty issues while still having some fun, giving us some new heroes that are much needed in today's world." -ComicBook.com "The tragedy and family drama at the heart of IMAGE COMICS' new series BITTER ROOT may be the most traditional thing about a comic that is, at heart, anything but traditional." -The Hollywood Reporter "Puts a monstrous face on bigotry and a beautiful new spin on the Harlem Renaissance." -The Onion's AV Club "Has become a conversation starter in the comic book industry, which continues to awaken to more diverse ways of creating characters both on the page and behind the scenes. The comic is by an all-black creative team and features a predominantly black cast of characters in the 1920s-embracing the black artistic creativity of the Harlem Renaissance but also recognizing the racism of the time." -The Washington Post
