Thanks to all of you for waiting so long for issue #11. As many visitors to the ELEPHANTMEN booth at the San Diego Comic Con know, Moritat has been suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome, and this has put a crimp in the schedule from which we’re slowly recovering as his drawing arm recovers.
Files were delivered to the printer late last week, and we’ve been assured it will arrive in stores just three weeks from now. In the meantime, check out the four-page story preview and postcard gallery below. We hope you’ll agree that Moritat has knocked it of the park once again!
ON SALE WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 17th: ELEPHANTMEN #11

Nikken: Creator of the Elephantmen, Scientist, Geneticist. Imprisoned for crimes against humanity. Serengheti: African, Businessman, a man who hates the Elephantmen. These are two men driven by hungers and desires that would chill the souls of ordinary mortals, yet still pawns in a bigger game played by men of much darker visions.
This issue also features a six-page tribute to our friend Mike Wieringo, including an extensive interview and the step-by-step creation of his Hip Flask pinup.
