Image Comics ‘Bitter Root’ Wins Eisner Award for Best Continuing Series

Image Comics genre-bending Bitter Root by David Walker, Chuck Brown, and Sanford Greene took home the 2020 Eisner Award for Best Continuing Series at the annual San Diego Comic Con event.

Bitter Root is a story set during the Harlem Renaissance and focuses on the Sangerye Family, who have a knack for conquering supernatural forces of all shapes and sizes. But the family isn’t what they used to be, having been torn apart by tragedies, grudges, and ethical dilemas.

Bitter Root balances the monster hunting and family dynamics in a tale that is about supernatural and real-world horrors and strife.

The series is currently on issue #9 and a collection of the first story arc, Family Business, was released in May. The second volume is tentatively scheduled to be released on October 21, 2020.

Congratulations to the entire team on this well-deserved honor.
