Hot Topic Sells Exclusive We Can Never Go Home #1 And Toe Tag #1… Tomorrow

Posted by September 29, 2015 Comment

We ran a story how Hot Topic had returned all of Double Take’s zombie comics, unracked, due to scenes of drug use and sexuality. But what could replace them?

Why, Black Mask Studios’s Toe Tag Riot #1 and We Can Never Go Home #1 with brand new Ht Topic exclusive covers. Which I have to say, do seem a little more Hot Topic…


A well worn mixtape, a stolen convertible, a duffel bag full of cash, a fully loaded .45, and super-powers. 17 and on the run is the only way to see America right.

Navigating the halls of high school is never easy. And for teenage outcast Duncan and popular girl Madison things are even harder. They share a secret- they can do things other people can’t. But their abilities and need for secrecy take them down a dangerous path. A blend of crime road stories like True Romance & Badlands, We Can Never Go Home is a new chance to fall in love with the doomed misfits and dreamers who set off to find something bigger.

The debut creator-owned book from writers Matthew Rosenberg & Patrick Kindlon (12 Reasons To Die, Ghostface Killah’s new LP 36 Seasons) and artist Josh Hood (JLA: Scary Monsters, Venom).


A hilarious and gory tongue-in-cheek story, Toe Tag Riot is about a punk rock band cursed to become zombies whenever they perform their music! The band goes on a last cross-country tour in search of the cure to their affliction, but being the ethical sometimes-zombie punks that they are, Toe Tag Riot uses their zombie superpowers to rid the world of racists, homophobes, misogynists and all kinds of other nasty people. Read the LGBT-positive book that the Westboro Baptist Church themselves accidentally endorsed and then felt really stupid about doing! Guest appearance by Andy Hurley from Fall Out Boy!


With exclusive low print run covers to Hot Topic and hitting the Hot Topic shelves… tomorrow. If they sell well, they will order more… but with new covers.

Black Mask comic book collectors kicking yourself over not getting the Baltmore Comic Con variant of We Are Not Alone?

Here is your next brand new shiny shiny hole in your heart…
