When the River Rises

Inspired By True Events. For the first time in 15 years, inmate Russell Gates is glad to be behind bars. Despite the daily dangers at Orleans Parish Prison, the walls offer protection from Hurricane Katrina churning up the coast. Across town, his estranged son Sydquan is being herded aboard a bus with thirty other juvenile delinquents...to be stashed at the OPP for safety's sake. A violent struggle to survive ensues after the prison floods and the prisoners escape from their cells, leading to a thrilling chase from the depths of the prison to the heart of the Lower Ninth Ward. Written by D.C. Walker (Last Confession). With art from Bruno Oliveira (FALLOUT).
