Posted by August 18, 2018 Comment

Dark Horse has released previews for three of the four single-issues they’re releasing on Wednesday (tough luck for those of you who couldn’t decide whether to purchase Bedtime Games #3). Check out previews for Beasts of Burden: Wise Dogs and Eldritch Men #1, Black Hammer: Age of Doom #4, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 12: The Reckoning #3 below.

A heroic pack of canines known as the Wise Dogs set off on a mission to clean up a Pennsylvania corridor plagued by seemingly unrelated occult disturbances that include a fire salamander and a horde of mutant lurkers. A link is found among the various disturbances, leading our heroes to a mountain village inhabited by a survivalist witch-cult who have discovered the existence of a ”Blood Lure” attracting occult forces, creatures, and many more terrors to Burden Hill!

* The eight-time Eisner-winning series is back!

* Variant Cover by Rafael Albuquerque!

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
