B. Clay Moore and Steven Griffin return to Image Comics with more noir stories of detective Byrd. Best of all the mini-series is now going to be an ongoing monthly.
“HAWAIIAN DICK has always been my favorite series to write,” says writer B. Clay Moore in a prepared statement. “It hits all of my favorite interests – the ’50s, cocktails and the supernatural. While I’m very proud of ‘Byrd of Paradise’ and ‘The Last Resort,’ I always felt a little restricted in the miniseries format. I wanted to allow plotlines to develop more naturally. After years of mulling it over, everything came together when Steve and I met Scott Chantler.”
If you haven’t read The Last Resort, you really should. Part noir detective novel, part Fist Full of Dollars, and part ghost story, this series has it all, plus all the Tiki themes you can handle. You can bet the new series is going going to be on my buy list.
Take the jump for the full cover by Steven Griffin.
Hawaiian Dick #1 arrives in stores November 21 for $2.99.
And of course this just begs the question, “Do you like dick?”
