Allen: Son of Hellcock, the humorous send up of sword and sorcery comics, is arriving from Z2 Comics on December 9th, and we have a preview for you here today on Bleeding Cool.
If you missed our previous coverage of some of the art process on the book, Z2 describe the comic thus:
…the comic book debut of writers Will Tracy (Last Week Tonight with John Oliver) and Gabe Koplowitz, with artist Miguel Porto, will be released this December from Z2 Comics. Title character Allen is cowardly, directionless, and less physically menacing than a daffodil. He’s also the only son of the mightiest hero ever to plunge his sword hilt-deep into the dark heart of evil… the mighty HELLCOCK! Enjoy the ride as Allen is thrust sword-first into a not-so-classic fantasy quest that, frankly, he would rather just sit out.
Writer Will Tracy was the former EIC of The Onion, and co-writer Gabe Koplowitz also a director of promo videos for VH1. Artist Miguel Porto is based in Spain and has a wide range of projects under his belt. As you can see from this preview, his artwork is both funny and poignant:
Allen: Son of Hellcock #1 is currently listed in Preview World with item code OCT151838 and reaches FOC on October 22nd.
