Dynamite Offers Preview of Bad Ass #1


Dynamite has a new series due in January. Not just any series, but one that promises to be awesome. Bad-ass even. As in Bad Ass #1, a four-issue limited series scheduled for release starting in January 2014. The book is the brainchild of writer Herik Hanna and artist Bruno Bessadi. It introduces Dead End, an unstoppable vigilante who may claim to be a masked avenger... but he's a villain through and through, with a cause even greater than serving justice: serving himself.

"With Bad Ass, we are delivering a true tribute to -- and parody of -- American superhero comic books," said Bessadi. "Dead End is an antihero with uninhibited wickedness, which -- let's face it -- we all secretly wish we could embrace. It's pure black humor and action, through and through!"

The book is solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' Previews catalog under Diamond Item Code NOV130951. Full press release below and interiors below.

BAD ASS #1, the Wild New Series Due in Stores This January


November 27, 2013, Mt. Laurel, NJ:  Dynamite is proud to share a five page preview of interior artwork from the first issue of Bad Ass, a four-issue limited series scheduled for release starting in January 2014.

Bad Ass is the brainchild of writer Herik Hanna and artist Bruno Bessadi, celebrated for its "evil genius, sinister wit, and wild abandon." Bad Ass introduces Dead End, an unstoppable vigilante who may claim to be a masked avenger... but he's a villain through and through, with a cause even greater than serving justice: serving himself.

As part of Dynamite's initial announcement regarding the new series, artist Bruno Bessadi had described the character and his motivations: "With Bad Ass, we are delivering a true tribute to -- and parody of -- American superhero comic books.  Dead End is an antihero with uninhibited wickedness, which -- let's face it -- we all secretly wish we could embrace.  It's pure black humor and action, through and through!"  Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite, has proudly compared the series to such irreverent comics as Deadpool and Kick Ass.
