The press release follows:
Media Release — After last week’s launch of GODKILLER: SPIDERLAND #1 sold out at the distributor level in 24 hours, Black Mask has renewed the series for a fifth volume GODKILLER: FOR THOSE I LOVE I WILL SACRIFICE scheduled for Spring 2022, continuing its streak as Black Mask’s all-time longest running and bestselling series.
Fan-favorite painters NEN CHANG and LIZ TECCA return with an evocative handpainted cover featuring the sardonic bounty hunter Soledad. Series artist ANNA MUCKCRACKER channels Tommy’s psychotic descent into madness in cover-B. And MARIA LLOVET scorches the series with a sizzling NSFW wraparound to finish off her triptych of Godkiller covers.
In GODKILLER: FOR THOSE I LOVE I WILL SACRIFICE, Halfpipe begins to master her newfound sorcery just as her relationship with Soledad becomes even more complicated. Meanwhile, Tommy struggles to break free of the vivisection table as the spider eggs in his blood are ready to hatch… for better or worse, we’ll finally reach the end of The Metarachnoid Larvae story arc.
Death and gore await some of our characters, rebirth awaits others… as the wildest comic on shelves thunders on in 2022.

ABOUT THE ARTIST: Polish-born ANNA WIESZCZYK was a student of graphic design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice, Poland when she illustrated her debut comic book GODKILLER: WALK AMONG US. She has illustrated the Image Comics series HOME, the Boom! Studios comics INTERESTING DRUG and LUCID, and contributed to the Iron Circus anthology TIM’ROUS BEASTIE and the Eisner-nominated SPERA series.
ABOUT THE WRITER: MATTEO PIZZOLO is a comic book writer-creator (CALEXIT is now in its eighth printing and Amazon-bestselling YOUNG TERRORISTS was second only to Lumberjanes as the highest selling indie graphic novel of the year), an award-winning filmmaker, and the co-founder of Black Mask where he’s championed such works as SPACE RIDERS, BLACK, LOUD, ALICE IN LEATHERLAND, WE CAN NEVER GO HOME, 4 KIDS WALK INTO A BANK, and more. Blending storytelling with political activism (for example, his CALEXIT character Emmie-X co-created with Carlos Granda became the face of a California voter outreach campaign that helped flip several districts in the 2018 midterm elections), Pizzolo devotes himself to creating and supporting some of the bravest comics on shelves.
ABOUT BLACK MASK STUDIOS: Bringing the punk rock ethic to comics, Black Mask supports creators telling awesome and important stories.
