story ALEXANDER GRECIAN, KURTIS WIEBE & JOE KEATINGE
art / cover RILEY ROSSMO
MAY 22
40 PAGES / FC / M
$4.99
GOLDEN-AGE FORMAT
Inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead, artist extraordinaire, RILEY ROSSMO, interprets stories from three of today’s top writers. From KURTIS WIEBE (PETER PANZERFAUST) comes a heartbreaking love story—in this world or the next. JOE KEATINGE (GLORY, HELL YEAH) offers up Day of the Dead 3000. As Ultra Muertos falls at the hands of Mother Slaughter, his grandson takes over the mantle with a death wish for all-out apocalypse! And New York Times bestselling author ALEXANDER GRECIAN (PROOF) tells a tale of ghost children.

—————————————-

Yeah, my story is gonna stand out a bit. Seems like everyone else are doing these quiet love stories or people reconnecting with family from beyond the dead. My story is… not. It’s essentially me writing 70s comics, 3/4ths Kirby, 1/4th R. Crumb. I wanted to try writing an issue of 2001: A Space Odyssey. So, I did.

also from Image…

Actually, Ricken’s cover is such a massive spoiler that we solicited it with some art from Andre that won’t be on the final cover, but here goes…

BONUS: WHAT IS JOE KEATINGE & JAMES HARVEY’S NULL/VOID?! (Find out!)
SERIES ONE CONCLUDES

—-

First thing, no — HELL YEAH is NOT ending. Frankly, this books not one that can come out every month just due to behind-the-scenes issues that are boring. So, we’re going to have to do it in chunks. The format will be altered in the future, but I’ll get to that when the time comes.

Second thing — James Harvey is awesome.

AND THEN…

MORBIUS makes a massive mistake at the end of #2 (out this week!) and the full repercussions are felt in this issue. It’s gonna be nuts. #4 is also a big, big issue, one that fully explains some of the things you probably even didn’t realize were mysteries in issue one. You’ll see what I mean.
