Coal Miners vs. Biblical Creatures
What if there really was a Garden of Eden - a place with a history before the first people we know of? A civilization cursed and banished underground for breaking their own commandment to live in balance with the Earth. When an evil coal operator discovers that the "sacred" carbon can burn forever, he will sacrifice the land and the people to extract the full deposit. When he awakens and releases a hell the surface world cannot imagine, the only thing that stands in the way of the ecological disaster, is a disgraced, ex-pro baseball pitcher and a community of courageous coal miners.
Carbon is a supernatural horror story intertwined with environmental issues so timely they appear to come from the day's headlines, just barely scratches the surface of Carbon, the all new graphic novel from Daniel Boyd. Set in the southern West Virginia coalfields, Boyd dedicated Carbon to "those that toil in darkness - coal miners" and said that whatever side of the debate over the industry you fall on, miners are the often unseen heroes.
