The Black Hood finished its first season in a pretty crazy way with former police officer Gregory Hettinger giving up the mantle of The Black Hood for good. With his absence comes the arrival of a deadly assassin known as The Nobody, who's willing to slaughter dozens in his quest to draw out The Black Hood. How far is Hettinger willing to go before he finally steps forward to face an unbeatable opponent? All that and more goes down in The Black Hood #1: Season 2 on September 21, featuring the talents of writer Duane Swierczynski, artist Greg Scott, colorist Kelly Fitzpatrick and letterer Rachel Deering.
"The exciting thing about this next season is that we’ll be taking the Hood on the road. The one thing he’s always had in his corner is his knowledge of the City of Philadelphia. But that won’t do him much good this time around," says series writer Duane Swierczynski. "I’m seriously excited about the Hood’s new antagonist, who is smart, focused, aggressive and relentless — pretty much the worst kind of person to have on your ass.”
"When we reached the end of the latest storyline, "The Lost Crusade," says Dark Circle Comics Editor Alex Segura, "it made sense to take a break and return with a new #1. It also gives fans a great opportunity to step into the series. We'd love for them to go back and read the first 11 issues, but this new #1 comes in with zero baggage. If you've heard about this book and were curious to try it out, now's the time. Duane and Greg are at the top of their game and this book is just a pleasure to watch come together. I have to give a hat tip to the killer colorist Kelly Fitzpatrick and letterer Rachel Deering, too, who are an essential part of what makes this book hum. Dark, gritty, unflinchingly hardboiled storytelling in the same vein as CRIMINAL or 100 BULLETS."
