Ten years ago, Brian Hurtt and I released our first comic together. The Damned was a five-issue limited series of gangsters, tommy guns, and demons. We followed that series with The Damned: Prodigal Sons, a three-issue story. While the first five issues were collected, the follow-up was never released as a trade. Now, after a decade, Brian and I are returning to the prohibition-era world that started it all, and we’ll be joined by our collaborator on The Sixth Gun, Bill Crabtree! This time around, the book will be ongoing and in-color!
From the announcement:
During prohibition, gangsters grew rich on our vices, and rivalries between criminal organizations resulted in open war. But unknown to the masses, a more sinister power controlled the crime cartels, using greed, gluttony, lust and other sins to fuel a more lucrative trade: mortal souls. Enter Eddie, a mortal who lost his soul long ago. Caught in the middle of competing demonic families, any other human would’ve gotten the ax long ago. But Eddie’s got a special talent that keeps him on his feet. One man’s curse is another man’s gift. The Damned is hard-boiled noir with demons, and the team behind The Sixth Gun is bringing it back with new colors, a new format, and a new ongoing tale of tommy guns and hellfire.
To kick off this exciting return to The Damned, we’re re-releasing the first story arc in trade paperback, in a new format, IN COLOR, and at a FANTASTIC PRICE that should ger old and new readers excited about the book!
