Bloodhound Resurrected by Dark Horse

From one publisher to another, these are the days of a comic book series. At least, that's the deal with Bloodhound, the former DC series being resurrected by Dark Horse. And writer Dan Jolley and illustrator Leonard Kirk are planning to bring a new, five-issue series called Crowbar Medicine.

Travis Clevenger may not have superpowers, but he can put a beatdown on anyone who does! Consulting with the FBI in exchange for release from prison, Clev is getting his life together when an out-of-control superhuman’s destructive rampage and a rogue scientist’s response—offering designer superpowers to anyone who can afford them—shock the nation, leading to Clev’s biggest case yet!

Bloodhound’s acclaimed three-parter in the pages of Dark Horse Presents concludes today, familiarizing readers with what Bloodhound is all about through a complete story and paving the way for his epic return. Additionally, the first volume of the long-out-of-print original Bloodhound series is in stores now, collecting the DC series from Jolley, Kirk and Robin Riggs—232 pages of brutal goodness.

Bloodhound: Crowbar Medicine #1 is on sale October 16 in comic shops everywhere. Full press release below.

Praise for Dan Jolley’s Bloodhound:

“Four-color crime and punishment like they just don’t make anymore. It’s good for the blood.”—Warren Ellis

“Leonard Kirk, Eddy Barrow, Robin Riggs, and Moose Baumann did a fantastic job on the art in this book. The subtle character work is great, telling a story well beyond the words being spoken, and when the violence breaks out, jeez does it look good in that wincing and turning away from the page kind of way.”—Fanboy Comics

“Clevenger’s tragic story of lust, murder, and betrayal is extremely grounded, feeling more like Sin City than Superman.”—Den of Geek


Bloodhound: Crowbar Medicine #1 is on sale October 16 in comic shops everywhere!

Bloodhound Volume 1: Brass Knuckle Psychology and Dark Horse Presents #25 are available today.
