The press release follows:
Media Release — Hot off its bestselling launch of “Tomorrow’s Ashes,” Black Mask has announced GODKILLER will return in September with its next volume “Spiderland,” becoming the publisher’s longest running series.
The new volume will launch with a breathtaking, handpainted wraparound cover by NEN CHANG, whose cover for vol 3 “Tomorrow’s Ashes” #1 was Black Mask’s all-time bestseller and sold out on its first day of release.
Red hot artist MARIA LLOVET will join Nen Chang and series artist/co-creator ANNA MUCKCRACKER on covers, bringing her stylish, sexy, NSFW vision to the series. Llovet made her US market debut at Black Mask with 2017’s THERE’S NOTHING THERE before FAITHLESS at Boom Studios and then writing and illustrating the graphic novella LOUD! at Black Mask.
In GODKILLER: SPIDERLAND, the relationship between anti-heroine Halfpipe and mysterious bounty hunter Soledad smolders as they discover a strange new sorcery they hope will help them rescue Tommy before he’s vivisected by The Republic.
Brash, bold, brutal, sexy, and over the top in all the best and most exciting ways, GODKILLER will return with a vengeance in September.
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.
