The Nemesis of Crime is back in a new limited series by writer Max Bemis this October!
In this series, Bob Benton aka the Black Terror, is living in the 1970s and contending with his post-war mental health as well as the rapidly evolving social landscape around him. Say Anything band frontman and acclaimed comics writer Bemis is joined by artists Matt Gaudio and Ruairí Coleman. Rounding out the team on colors and letters are Brittany Pezzillo and Taylor Esposito.
Each issue of the series acts as both the next chapter and a standalone deep dive into the Black Terror’s life and the chaotic 1970s setting. Fans can expect to see Black Terror’s infamous plain-named sidekick Tim, cult leaders, mobsters, experimental drugs and more. Bemis has described the title as a bit of an Alan Moore take, but less depressing and with some 70s Batman DNA.
Dating back to the Golden Age, the Black Terror was created in 1941 by Richard E. Hughes and Don Gabrielson. Under the hero’s stark costume is pharmacist Bob Benton, who developed a formula which granted him powers. Often joined by his sidekick Tim, the pair vowed to stamp out evil during the war. Such legendary creators as Batman artist and Joker creator Jerry Robinson and world-renowned novelist Patricia Highsmith contributed to his original stories. His tales continue today in series published by Dynamite.
This terrific tale is wrapped in terrifying covers by some of the best artists in comics. Actually, they aren’t too scary. Francesco Francavilla contributes the most haunting of the bunch. While Jorge Fornés has some fun with the skull & crossbones emblem for some pirate-themed fun. David Nakayama inspires some terror with his cover. Erica Henderson has Mr. Benton flying high. Adam Gorham rounds out the superpowered squad with a brooding rooftop Terror.
