Speaking on the announcement, Stavros comments: “I’d long been thinking of this story that was part horror and part noir, since before Coma Noir‘s album release. I’m a huge fan of both genres of film and comics so being able to tie both into my love of music was a perfect opportunity. I’ve gotten to release albums on some of the best metal labels ever and now I get to release a comic, yet another notch on my belt.”

Coma Noir‘s primary protagonist Detective Valentine wants nothing more than to drown his sorrows and self-pity at the bottom of a bottle. But a mysterious female named Nour Samman hires him to track down a priceless amulet. During the investigation, Detective Valentine finds himself dealing with a secret society, The Streets of Bombay, that seems to want him as a leader and an old friend who warns him of the dangers he’s gotten caught up in. His feelings for this mysterious woman push him to leave it all behind for her, but the fates have something else in store. Will he be the one who is damned, or will he be able to escape the dangers of The Streets of Bombay?
