Exclusive Previews: Z2 Comics’ Ashes: A Firefighter’s Tale and Pawn Shop


With this being New York Comic Con week, we thought it might be a fun time to debut some preview pages from a couple of New York-centric books coming out this week, both of which focus on everyday New Yorkers looking for real human connection amid everyday heroics.

First up is Ashes (click any page to enlarge).

ASHES: A FIREFIGHTER’S TALE written by Mario Candelaria (UNLAWFUL GOOD) with art by Karl Slominski (GOLGOTHA), takes readers along for the ride with New York firefighter. Matt always had an easygoing life. Girls liked him, his friends were like family and being a firefighter came naturally. But his life changed in an instant when he lost his leg trying to save the last person trapped in a burning building. A riveting tale about perseverance, hard work, and overcoming the odds, ASHES is a gripping tale told in evocative black and white.
