Ollie Masters and Pierluigi Minotti present the story of a robbery gone bad and a getaway to a town on fire.
Snow Blind writer Ollie Masters moves from frozen Alaska to a town literally on fire in Slow Burn, a new miniseries with artist Pierluigi Minotti, who drew the Comixology originals title Lost Falls.
Slow Burn is about a crew of thieves who botch a robbery in New York, then head to a mining ghost town in Pennsylvania to hide out — a town where a coal-seam fire as been burning since the 1960s.
“This is a comic about a fire that’s been burning underneath a town for decades and will continue burning for centuries. It’s about desperate people with violent pasts living on the edge, looking for a way out” said Masters. “About how our parents shape who we are, for better and for worse.”

‘Money,’ ‘Simulation. Theory’ and a second season of ‘Lost Falls’ will arrive next Tuesday.
Curt Pires’ relationship with Comixology Originals will continue to bear fruit next week, as the prolific writer has three new titles that will debut on the digital comics platform on July 18.
Pires’ run with Comixology started back in 2020 with the release of Youth, which has since been collected by Dark Horse and is being developed by Amazon for their streaming service. Since then we’ve seen a second season of Youth, as well as three other series — Memoria, New American and Lost Falls. That third one’s second season debuts next week, along with two new comics:
- Money, a “white-knuckle conspiracy thriller that follows five powerful families.” Money is illustrated by Luca Casalanguida, with colors by Mark Dale and lettering by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou.
- Simulation. Theory, a “sci-fi thrill ride into a simulated reality where one can live a new life.” Simulation. Theory is illustrated by Darryl Knickrehm, with colors by Mark Dale and lettering by Micah Myers.
- Lost Falls Season 2, which features art by Pierluigi Minotti, colors by Emilio Lecce and lettering by Micah Myers. The “mind-bending season of the socially minded mystery thriller” follows the recent release of Dark Horse’s print publication of Lost Falls Volume 1.
“I’m excited to be debuting Money, Simulation Theory and Lost Falls S2 with my world class collaborators on these projects and my friends at Comixology,” said Pires. “These books run the gamut subject and genre-wise and tackle some of the most prescient topics of the day. I think there’s something for everyone in these three books and am delighted by the accessibility that Kindle Unlimited and Comixology Unlimited provide in making them widely available.”
Here’s a look at Money:
