While we’ve seen many of the teaser and cover images for the upcoming Butcher Baker, The Righteous Maker, we here at Major Spoilers have still been scratching our heads to to what exactly the story is going to be about. Image Comics let us in on the upcoming Mike Huddleston and Joe Casey collaboration and it does confirm what many of us suspected – adult material.
BUTCHER BAKER was the preeminent All-American superhero. A long time ago. Now, he’s getting laid… a lot. One last mission could return him to glory… IF he doesn’t screw it up.
“This one ain’t for the faint of heart,” declares Joe Casey. “BUTCHER BAKER is a sleazy, mature readers superhero book about a semi-retired ‘patriotic’ superhero who gets the call for one last adventure. It’s everything you want a superhero comicbook to be. It’s simultaneously iconic and subversive and a whole lot of fun.”
“I don’t think I’ve ever had this much fun working on a book before,” says Huddleston. “Joe has created a ridiculously ultra-violent and over-sexed world unlike anything anyone has read before. It’s intense!”
Ultra-violent and over-sexed? Can not wait to see the politically correct crowd lose their minds…
Butcher Baker, The Righteous Maker #1 will have a cover price of $2.99 and arrive March 30, 2011.
