Bad Idea has announced that Monster Kill Squad will see delays for its four issues. Issue #2 will arrive Wednesday, October 13th, issue #3 on Wednesday, November 10th, and #4 will comes to shops on Wednesday, December 8th.
Pyrate Queen #2 and The Lot #4 will still be released on October 6.
Monster Kill Squad is written by Christos Gage with art by Tomas Giorello, colors by Diego Rodriguez, and cover by Lewis Larosa and Rodriguez.
Once upon a time, monster attacks were rare. A forest witch might murder a few hikers, a killer clown might eat a few children, or a malevolent ghost might drive a young couple insane just for the hell of it. But these events were scarce, easily covered up, and soon faded into campfire stories good for a laugh.
But no one’s laughing now. Over the past 90 days, cryptozoological attacks have increased a hundredfold, and the arcane has become everyday. Monsters of every shape and size strike at will, and the good, taxpaying folks of the US of A have had enough of this nonsense.
Enter: THE MONSTER KILL SQUAD. A Government Unit of the most dangerous motherfuckers on the planet, the deadliest folks alive are here to put a bullet in the brain of everything that walks, crawls, flies, or hides in shadows. And if it doesn’t have a brain, all the better — we’ve got a gun for that, too.
Witches and wraiths. Demons and deadites. Goblins and ghosts. There have always been monsters. Now there are monster killers, and the MKS will kill it, and kill it good.

After learning that his lost love might be still be alive, adrift somewhere in the vast ocean of space and time, Denver Wallace must convince his estranged team to set aside years of bad blood, saddle up, and bring her back home. Also, there’s a pretty funny reality show subplot, a panel where a dog takes a massive dump, and you know… plenty of cool monster-fighting stuff.

The lovely Delilah makes her entrance. Before Francis and Finch walk into every bad neighborhood your mother warned you about, they stop for a little firepower. What better place to grab a haunted revolver than “Darby’s Sushi & Pawn”? While Darby tries to dissuade Francis from purchasing a cursed colt named Delilah, his silent sidekick loads up like it’s a goddamn biblical do-over (this may not be Finch’s first rodeo). Dance floors will be bloodied before the night is over.
