In his most ambitious and most personal

project to date, JEFF LEMIRE spins the captivating and engaging story of a

family from the small factory town of ROYAL CITY and the ghosts that haunt them.

In a return to the literary and

thematic territory of Lemire's breakthrough graphic novel ESSEX COUNTY,

ROYAL CITY follows Patrick Pike, a fading literary star who reluctantly returns

to the once-thriving factory town where he grew up. Patrick is quickly drawn

back into the dramas of his two adult siblings, his overbearing Mother and his

brow beaten Father, all of whom are still haunted by different versions of his

youngest brother, Tommy, who drowned decades

ago.As each member of the family

struggles to keep themselves above water, it quickly becomes clear that

Tommy's death isn't the only dark secret tearing the town, and this

family, apart at the seams. Can each member of the Pike family come to terms

with their own guilt over Tommy's death, and make peace with the many

versions of Tommy that still haunt them, or will they all be dragged down below

the river along with his lingering

ghost?ROYAL CITY promises to be a

sprawling, serialized graphic novel that will chart the lives, loves and losses

of a troubled family and a vanishing town, across three decades.
