NEW TATTOO is a quirky comic prequel inspired by the critically acclaimed film AIN’T THEM BODIES SAINTS, starring Rooney Mara, Casey Affleck and Ben Foster. The graphic novel was created by Criterion Collection artist Eric Skillman and comic book artist Matthew Southworth. You can view the comic here.

The film, which is the second feature from writer-director David Lowery, was developed at the Sundance Institute’s Writing and Producing Labs and also stars Nate Parker and Keith Carradine.

When I read the title of this post, I thought you were going to show a pic of your new tattoo. funny coincidence.
Yeah, I’ve noticed some more tattoo themes in some of the comics I’ve been reading. And it does seem to fall right in with my new tat. Maybe I’ll show it off sometime.
