Image Comics has announced that Howard Chaykin is returning to share even more secret stories behind comics in Hey Kids! Comics! Volume 2: Prophets and Loss #1.
Digging deeper into the sometimes-sordid, sometimes-seedy, always-entertaining lives of the men and women who built a multi-billion-dollar industry almost by accident, PROPHETS & LOSS traces a path through the creation of many of comics’ greatest franchises, from companies that dared to push the boundaries of least-common-denominator kid stuff – usually at their peril – to those happy just to ride the waves others took the time to create. Along the way there’s exploitation, Blaxploitation, custom toilet paper, death at the dinner table and plenty more as fans turn pro and pros turn bitter.
Hey Kids! Comics! Volume 2: Prophets and Loss #1 is available now, with issue two arriving on June 9, 2021.
