The Black Hood is a series full of drama and bad people. It still maeks for good reading and Dark Circle Comics is poised to announce The Black Hood Vol 1: The Bullet's Kiss trade paperback. Part of that TPB will be an exclusive introduction written by Lawrence Block. The book collects the first five issues of the well-reviewed series from fellow crime novelist Duane Swierczynski and artist Michael Gaydos, plus many behind-the-scenes extras.
"Both Duane and I are huge fans of Lawrence Block's epic body of work, from Matt Scudder to his most recent novel," said Alex Segura, Dark Circle Comics Editor. "To have him grace this important book with an introduction is amazing, and something I'm very excited for fans to embrace. You're getting work from two of the most acclaimed voices in crime fiction in this collection, for the price of one."
The Black Hood Vol 1: The Bullet's Kiss takes readers into the life of a hero cop who finds himself scarred, addicted and broken by his job and showcases his journey to becoming a painkiller-addicted vigilante intent on cleaning up the corruption in Philadelphia. Swierczynski’s grounded and unrelenting look at a desperate and broken man’s search for meaning in an unforgiving world is brought to noir-drenched life by artist Michael Gaydos and the somber pallet of colorist Kelly Fitzpatrick.
