Black’s Myth, the punk rock horror series from Eric Palicki and Wendell Cavalcanti is back with a new installment – Black’s Myth: The Key to His Heart, which debuts in June 2023.
“I’ve made a terrible mistake, and I don’t just mean pursuing a career in comics!” said writer Eric Palicki in a press release from AHOY Comics. “How can we continue calling our book Black’s Myth unless Strummer once again finds herself in the orbit of her enigmatic client-turned-nemesis Rainsford Black? Hopefully, Volume Two reveals Mister Black to be a little less mysterious and perhaps a tad more sympathetic, as Wendell and I build on the unanswered questions of the first volume while also delivering a new mystery for Strums and Ben to unravel.”
In her latest case, werewolf private eye Janie Jones “Strummer” Mercado tries to prevent a young girl from becoming a monster with the aid of her suave djinn assistant, Ben Si’lat. But will Strummer gain an intern instead? And why is an old enemy sending mysterious packages to her house?
“I’ve always loved werewolves, but I never thought I’d be working on a werewolf comic series,” said artist Wendell Cavalcanti in the same press release. “And here I am for the second time (wow!), in a supernatural Los Angeles where I can draw werewolves, vampires, djinns, witches, and The Minotaur (there is only one). It’s exciting to show a little more of these characters. I can only say thank you very much to all of you.”
Black’s Myth: The Key to His Heart is expected to arrive at your LCS on June 21, 2023.
