The second installment in Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino’s Bone Orchard series, Ten Thousand Black Feathers, will fly into stores this September.
Lemire describes the follow up to Image Comics The Passageway as “…a story of friendship, coming of age and imagination that is equal parts horrific, mysterious and heart wrenching.”

Ten Thousand Black Feathers #1 will be available at your local comic book shop on September 14 and arrives with a standard cover by Sorrentino and an additional six variants (although three of the variants are retailer incentive covers).
