“Both a lyrical modern-day fable and a somber crime drama that turns on a touch of magic realism. Never dull for an instant; lyrical, somber… immensely satisfying.” – Booklist (Starred Review)

Some guys have all the luck… but not all luck is good. The award-winning duo behind Coin-Op Comics return with a mind-bending tale of fortune and family.

Imagine a world where Luck, the most ephemeral of ideas, has a physical form. Precious stones of luck, mined like gold, are worn as bringers of fortune. But luck breaks both ways. While the blue gems may grant advantage to those who wear them, their blessing is fickle and unpredictable. In the blink of an eye, good luck can turn to bad.

We follow the life of a man who comes into possession of some powerful stones — but the success enjoyed by the father goes awry when he tries to pass this luck onto his son. This graphic novel tale is told in alternating scenes between the two generations, The Bend of Luck follows felicity’s course, like an arrow, through a family’s destiny.
