Nine-year-old Lee Wagstaff knew better than to go down to the bayou. The last time she'd gone into the murky waters was to help her father fish out the body of a boy who'd been lynched for whistling at a white woman. As she tied the rope around the boy's foot, she saw something - or was it someone? - move in the darkness of the swamp.
Something's down in that water. Lee knows it. And she knows she ain't going back.
When her white playmate ignores her warnings, she's swallowed up into the bayou. Lee watches as her father's dragged off by a mob after he's accused of harming the white girl. Determined to find her friend and save her father's life, Lee embarks on a haunting journey to unlock the dark mysteries of the bayou's cloudy depths.
Blending elements of fantasy and Southern folklore, Bayou is a supernatural fairy tale that sets Alice in Wonderland within a historical representation of poverty and racism in the 1930's South.
On sale this June, BAYOU Volume One collects the first four chapters of the critically-acclaimed webcomic by Jeremy Love.
