Kyle Starks launches Rock Candy Mountain at Image Comics in April. Want a tale about hobos? Rock Candy Mountain may have exactly what you want.
ROCK CANDY MOUNTAIN is full of high action, epic stakes, magic, friendships, trains, punching, kicking, joking, a ton of hobo nonsense, and the Literal Devil. Yeah. The Literal Devil.
“I really wanted to tell an epic journey with major stakes mixed with sort of a mystery and tons of fighting,” said Starks in an interview with Image+. “I also wanted to do some magical realism. And it’s hobos. Hobos fighting. I mean, what’s more magical than riding around the country, living off the grid?”
The world’s toughest hobo is searching through post-World War II America for the mythological Rock Candy Mountain, and he’s going to have to fight his way to get there. Lots of hobo fights. So many hobo fights.
Rock Candy Mountain #1 arrives in stores on Wednesday, April 5th, 2017.
