 The Black Hood's return to the cruel and dangerous streets of Philadelphia continues as the critically acclaimed Dark Circle Comics series welcomes artists Robert Hack (CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA) and Greg Scott (Sam Hill, Strange Attractors) for the next chapters of "The Lonely Crusade."


Robert Hack, artist of the hit Archie Horror series CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA joins writer Duane Swierczynski (Judge Dredd, Canary) 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.

"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 Scott joins THE BLACK HOOD in February as the new regular series artist, jumping head-first into Officer Gregory Hettinger's one man fight against a new criminal force known as The Crusaders.

"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.

THE BLACK HOOD #7 is on sale now from Dark Circle Comics, available at comic shops and on the new Archie Comics app for iOS. Look for THE BLACK HOOD #8 and #9 starting in January 2016.

Especially when they stumble upon the Hood’s real identity... Artist extraordinaire ROBERT HACK (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, The X-Files) as he takes over art duties in this special issue.

REVIEW: 'Bonehead' #2 by Bryan Edward Hill, Rhoald Marcellius, and Sakti Yuwono

Bryan Hill pumps the brakes a little in the follow up to the fast-paced debut of 'Bonehead' with more great world building. The mystery surrounding Bonehead 56 deepens but we at least get some backstory and details about what his arrival means for a pair of brothers with opposing viewpoints.

Hit-Girl is most certainly back and as deadly and crazy as ever. She's gone international looking to fight injustice and find a worthy sidekick.

The retirement of Dave Lizewki as the original Kick-Ass has left a void in Mindy's crime-fighting life. Trying to recruit his replacement has been challenging to say the least. She's going to go it alone and taking her skills global as a cry for help leads her to Colombia.

Millar hits the floor running with a wild prison break, Mindy parting ways with an unworthy partner, and a grieving mother looking for justice. The sudden blitz back to the world of Kick-Ass is like comfort food for comic book fans. …
