Black Heart

Before writer/artist Rick Remender was Heep Big Cheese with all of his PUNISHER WAR JOURNAL/ATOM/FEAR AGENT/END LEAGUE/BLAH BLAH EVERY THIRD BOOK RELEASED, he and Kieron Dwyer (also the creators of our sold-out NIGHT MARY book, which is being re-released this month) put out a book called BLACK HEART BILLY. The book was only ever released in b&w, so we're happy to be able to put out a color version. Colorist Kevin Cross colored everything, five pages of which are shown below the solicits for the book. It's in stores tomorrow.

Black Heart Billy
Rick Remender (w) • Kieron Dwyer, Harper Jaten (a) • Dwyer (c)
Meet Billy Black, an ‘80s hardcore scene refugee who’s having a bit of trouble acclimating to modern life. While bludgeoning a band of Burning Man refugees with the skull of Jerry Garcia, Billy inadvertently becomes immersed in an evil Nazi conspiracy to turn the world into mindless hippie zombies in order to usher in the 4th Reich.
“Hitler in Jerry Garcia’s corpse—how can you say no?” — Warren Ellis
