NEW BECKY CLOONAN COVER FOR BY CHANCE OR PROVIDENCE REVEALED
“Beautiful, haunting, and refreshingly mysterious.” —Mike Mignola
PORTLAND, Ore. 08/29/2019 — Image Comics is pleased to reveal the new Becky Cloonan cover, featuring original artwork, for the upcoming By Chance Or Providence trade paperback reprint.
By Chance Or Providence collects Becky Cloonan’s award-winning trilogy: “Wolves,” “The Mire,” and “Demeter,” with lush colors by Lee Loughridge and a sketchbook/illustration section. These stories cast a spell of hypnotic melancholy, weaving their way through medieval landscapes of ancient curses and terrible truths.
Perfect for fans of Emily Carrol’s characteristically dark and atmospheric storytelling—like When I Arrived at the Castle and Through the Woods—By Chance Or Providence will haunt readers long after they flip the final page.
