Press Release

Today, Image Comics has announced That Texas Blood will return with an all-new story arc kicking off June 30th with issue #7. It’s a series that has had its entire run get multiple printings and the first story arc was pretty darn good too. Writer Chris Condon and artist Jacob Phillips will return with a story that explores Sheriff Joe Bob Coates’ past. “We are taking a deeper dive into the world of Ambrose County, blowing off some of that desert dust and seeing what lurks beneath,” Phillips said in a statement send to AIPT.

“I’m beyond excited to explore a bit of Joe’s past in this next story arc as we travel back in time to 1981. We’ll see new places, meet new people, and explore ideas we haven’t before. I’ve always believed that the beginning years of any decade are the hangover of the previous one, and I am absolutely thrilled that we are allowed to dissect this over the next six issues with our merry band of Ambrose Countians,” said Condon in a statement sent to AIPT.

So what’s That Texas Blood #7 about?

Joe Bob reminisces about one of his first cases: a haunting and bizarre evening that left a boy dead, a girl missing, a cult on the loose, and introduced a mysterious man called Harlan Eversaul.

“But don’t be fooled, we aren’t viewing the past through rose-colored glasses. I’ve said before that Texas is America’s mystical land, but every fantasy world has a minotaur lurking in the dark or a dragon breathing through smoking nostrils over armor-clad corpses. Our Texas is no different. The shadows there stretch to the horizon, devouring all light. But there are some who see the darkness and strike a match to light the way. I hope that you’ll join us on our trip down Highway 90, into the heart of Ambrose County and into the dark depths of the past. But don’t you fret, we’re not out of matches yet.”

Check out That Texas Blood #7 Cover A by Phillips (Diamond Code APR210194) and That Texas Blood #7 Cover by Marc Aspinall (Diamond Code APR210195) below. Both will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, June 30.
