The Black Hood isn't shy about relaying the dangerous streets of Philadelphia to readers. That continues with The Black Hood #8 when Robert Hack and Greg Scott make their way to the series. Hack joins writer Duane Swierczynski as the guest artist for January's The Black Hood #8, bringing his twisted and grim style to the pages of Swierczynki's crime noir thriller. Scott joins the series in February as the new regular series artist.
"We were honored and extremely lucky to have a talent like Michael Gaydos on art for six of the first seven issues of eight The Black Hood,” says Dark Circle Comics Editor Alex Segura. "Robert, paired with our great series colorist, Kelly Fitzpatrick, keeps the book’s gritty, rough vibe but adds a layer of discomfort and uncertainty, which perfectly matches Duane’s brooding script."
"Duane is doing some brilliant work and this script is a blast to draw," said Hack. "Drawing two monthly comics at the same time — as daunting as that sounds, when the comics are this good, they are worth the inevitable ulcers."
"Greg maintains the dark, moody tone of the first seven issues while injecting his own detailed, noir style. I think fans will be very pleased with his work and we’re excited to get a nice, long run of work out of him and Duane,” Segura added.
