Hawaii Goes Dark


Ever read a noir story set in a tropical environment? Probably not, as the typically sunny environs don't really afford the right atmosphere for a story of intrigue and mystery. Image Comics wants to change that with the release of Aloha, Hawaiian Dick #1 by B. Clay Moore and Jacob Wyatt in April.

“Jake and I have been working on this book for some time, and I'm excited to see Hawaiian Dick return to the shelves looking better than ever,” said Moore. “With the announcement that NBC is working toward a television show, we hope interest is at an all-time high. The tone of Aloha is a little darker than previous series, as events take place that alter the entire perspective of our lead characters. I think new readers will feel comfortable, and long-time readers will be rewarded for their patience.”

While Byrd remains in 1954 Hawaii, in Aloha, Hawaiian Dick #11 we meet another Byrd back in the States, and his impending arrival on the scene is destined to change the landscape of Hawaiian Dick forever. Aloha, Hawaiian Dick #1 (Diamond Code FEB160483) will hit comic book stores on Wednesday, April 20th. The final order cutoff deadline for comic book retailers is Monday, March 28th.
