Eric Palicki and Wendell Cavalcanti are teaming for Black’s Myth, and all new punk rock horror series about a werewolf private investigator.
Meet Janie Jones “Strummer” Mercado—just an ordinary werewolf PI, trying to make it on the mean streets of Los Angeles. When the case of a lifetime falls into her lap, it’s up to her and her charming djinn assistant Ben Si’lat to figure out just how many silver bullets have been used, and just where do silver bullets come from anyway? BLACK’S MYTH mixes familiar noir detective tropes with urban fantasy world-building as it explores the “supernatural underground” thriving in Los Angeles.
“Like all the best punk rock narratives, BLACK’S MYTH is about outcasts finding each other and accepting their place in the world,” said writer Eric Palicki in a press release from AHOY Comics. “In its own subtle way, it’s about being part of the comics community.”
“Working with the team has been great,” said artist Wendell Cavalcanti in the same press release. “I’m given a lot of room to create the world of BLACK’S MYTH, and the input I receive from Eric and Sarah perfects it. We all work really well together to make a unique book.”
Black’s Myth is scheduled to arrive in comic shops on July 7, 2021 with a SRP of $3.99.
