COFFLE tells the story of Ardenne, an escaped slave who leads other slaves across the blasted danger zone The Patch to freedom in the Rim-towns, if they can survive the journey. Remnants of technology, ancient magic, and the universal desire to live free collide in a thrilling trek to freedom or death.
Gemma Files’ story and Stephen Wilson’s art (cover, three interiors) come together for this high-octane tale of a tragic future and the very human figures that populate it.
The chapbook includes a 6x9 print of the cover art, plus a bookmark with Stephen Wilson art and a Dim Shores checklist. Limited to 200 hand-numbered copies.
