Hey Pal- what the heck IS Blackhand Comics anyway…?
Well, I draw a book called Deadly Class right? So when I’m not doing that, I’m writing and drawing Blackhand Comics. It’s where I put all my ideas, whatever’s running around up there. There’s one genre, style, characters, etc.- that’s why I use the catch-all title “Blackhand.” I do a lot of experiments with “comic book language” and storytelling- with some interesting results.
They’re available to check out for free right now: www.blackhandcomics.com.
And in October Image Comics will be putting out a hardcover collection of the first three stories: “Gravedigger’s Union” “Circus Day” and “The Seed.”
Starting next month I’m going to be putting up two new stories on the site "Long Way Home" and "Martian Lust" (actually Long Way Home isn’t brand new but whatever).
When I’ve got a few more new ones wrapped up I’ll be putting out Blackhand Book 2, and on and on…
That’s the deal.
You can order the book at comic shops now using the code: AUG140574

This is the first collection. I’ve got more stories to come, online first, then in print, I’d like to do one of these every year. What’ll make that easier of course is if we move some copies.
