Garth Ennis and artist John Higgins’ action-packed crime story, Pride & Joy will return to publication this May courtesy of Image Comics.

Pride & Joy is an old favorite of mine, and I’m delighted to see it released in this lovely new Image edition,” said Ennis.

Pride & Joy tells the story of Jimmy Kavanagh as he quietly mourns the loss of his wife at his home in the backwoods of New England all while trying to raise his devoted daughter and resentful son. His grief is interrupted when his criminal past threatens to destroy his entire family.

John Higgins added, “Pride & Joy was the first comic story I had worked on that felt complete, like a suspense novel, visceral, and violent. Very pleased it will find a new audience with this Image graphic novel.”

Pride & Joy will be available on comic book shelves Wednesday, May 4th and in bookstores on Tuesday, May 10th. It will run you $14.99. Pre-Order your copy today.
