In his most ambitious and most personal project to date- JEFF LEMIRE spins the captivating and engaging story of a family from the small factory town of Royal City and the ghosts that haunt them. In a return to the literary and thematic territory of LEMIRE's breakthrough graphic novel Essex County- ROYAL CITY follows Patrick Pike- a fading literary star who reluctantly returns to the once-thriving factory town where he grew up. Patrick is quickly drawn back into the dramas of his two adult siblings- his overbearing mother- and his browbeaten father- all of whom are still haunted by different versions of his youngest brother- Tommy- who drowned decades ago. As each member of the family struggles to keep themselves above water- it quickly becomes clear that Tommy's death isn't the only dark secret tearing the town- and this family- apart at the seams. Can each member of the Pike family come to terms with their own guilt over Tommy's death- and make peace with the many versions of Tommy that still haunt them- or will they all be dragged down below the river along with his lingering ghost? ROYAL CITY promises to be a sprawling serialized graphic novel that will chart the lives- loves- and losses of a troubled family and a vanishing town- across three decades. JEFF LEMIRE is the creator of DESCENDER (with DUSTIN NGUYEN)- A.D.: AFTER DEATH (with SCOTT SNYDER)- Roughneck- Secret Path (with GORD DOWNIE)- PLUTONA (with EMI LENNOX)- Essex County- Sweet Tooth- Trillium- and The Underwater Welder. He had also written celebrated stories featuring Green Arrow- Animal Man- Bloodshot- Wolverine- Hawkeye- Teen Titans- the Valiant- the X-Men- and Inhumans for the major comic book publishers.
