Oni Press has a new book out today, a new #1 by Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt for the second volume of The Damned. The new arc, called Ill-Gotten, and as the synopsis says, it tells the tales of a Prohibition-era world where demonic princes pull the strings that make crime families dance, Eddie is a mortal with two things working for him. First of all, he can’t die. Well, he can and does, quite often, but he doesn’t stay down for long. Second, Eddie runs the Gehenna Room, a nightclub with a strict ‘no demons allowed’ policy. But blessings and curses don’t look all that different these days, and failing to tell the two apart can get a guy killed – over and over again in Eddie’s case. So when one of Eddie’s old pals shows up seeking sanctuary, Eddie knows he’s in for a double-cross, and that means walking the line between salvation and damnation once more.
Here’s the cover:
Now, most stores like Redd Skull Comics in Calgary, have this $1.00 issue up on their shelves ready to go for today’s customers.
But, Space Cadets in Oak Ridge North, TX felt the title of the series was not quite right for their family-friendly location and came up with kind of a funny solution.
Now I really want to read a comic called The Darned.
