An Irish gangster, on the run after a job gone wrong, stumbles upon a young woman lost in the Dublin mountains. Injured and unarmed, the unlikely pair must try to evade their pursuers and survive the desolate bog that has served as burial grounds for unspeakable murder throughout history. DECLAN SHALVEY (INJECTION, SAVAGE TOWN) and GAVIN FULLERTON (Bags) deliver a cold and poignant story of crime, survival, and regret.

"Bog Bodies is exactly the kind of comics I love! ...Filled with visceral images that stay with you long after you're done reading the book. It gets into the bloodstream." -Brian Michael Bendis

"The story fizzes with black humour and local flourish, and its dialogue hums with the knotty cadences of Dublin speech. The effect is arresting." -The Irish Times

"A seedy noir vision of modern Ireland, where the cities are nests of crime, peat country is where the bodies are buried, and everyone speaks in filthy rat-tat-tat slang." -Publishers Weekly

"A damn good, feel bad comic."

"A top flight crime book, managing to be brutal and vulnerable and funny as hell all at the same time." -Warren Ellis

"A more meditative take on the crime genre than most of its immediate counterparts, Bog Bodies breathes new life into a well-worn premise." -Comic Book Resources
