Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter will be teaming with BOOM! Studios for a brand new comic series, Sisters of Sorrow.
This is the latest in Sutter’s relationship with BOOM! Studios where he previously worked on a Sons of Anarchy series and will see the final issue of the original miniseries, Lucas Stand, this Wednesday.
“I’ve been wanting to create a mythology around kick-ass female characters—and in this current sociopolitical climate, it seems more important than ever,” said Sutter.
“SISTERS OF SORROW is the story of four women, all victims of violent crimes, who unite to exact revenge on their perpetrators. By day, they are peaceful community activists in downtown LA. By night, they don bulletproof black leather under crisp white habits, strapped with state-of-the art weapons and the skills to use them. Yep, nuns with guns, baby.”
“One of my favorite parts of the creation process in comics is when you find collaborators that you’re immediately in lockstep with,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “Ever since we started working with Kurt on the Sons of Anarchy comic books and then on Lucas Stand, we feel like we’ve found a creative brother. We literally couldn’t be happier with this partnership. With SISTERS OF SORROW, Kurt has cooked up a wickedly hard-hitting series that features complex characters and a killer concept. In other words, SISTERS OF SORROW is pure Sutter.”
Sisters of Sorrow is expected to debut next July at San Diego Comic-Con International.
