Black Mask Studios Celebrates Local Comic Shop Day

On Saturday, November 18th, Black Mask Studios will release six limited edition items to commemorate Local Comic Shop Day, a nationwide event that celebrates locally owned independent comic book specialty stores. The Los Angeles-based indie publisher of acclaimed titles including The Dregs, Kim & Kim, and Space Riders is releasing three limited edition hardcovers, a CalExit bandana and two “DIY” Lenticular hardcovers for some of their acclaimed titles.

The Black Mask Studios Local Comic Shop Day releases are as follows:

4 KIDS WALK INTO A BANK – Local Comic Shop Day Exclusive Hardcover. 208 pages. $29.99

4 KIDS WALK INTO A BANK is the darkly comedic story of four burgeoning child criminals and their elaborate plans. When a group of bumbling criminals show up in her father’s life looking to pull one last job, young Paige has two choices: let her father get caught up in their criminal hijinks or enlist her three best friends to do the job first. Paige makes a bad decision. And we can’t look away.

Writer Matthew Rosenberg and artist Tyler Boss pull off something almost as rare as a successful bank heist: a seamless collaboration that celebrates their, and our favorite, cultural touchstones—with loving nods to THE GODFATHER, STAR WARS, SCARFACE, and the films of Wes Anderson, Sidney Lumet and Quentin Tarantino—while creating a story that is immediate and original.

BLACK – Local Comic Shop Day Exclusive Hardcover. 160 pages. $34.99

In a world that already hates and fears them – what if only Black people had superpowers?

Co-created by Kwanza Osajyefo and Tim Smith III, illustrated by Inkpot-Award winning artist Jamal Igle, and featuring a cover by  illustrator Khary Randolph, BLACK follows the story of a young man, who, having miraculously survived being shot by police, learns that he is part of the biggest lie in history. He must decide whether it’s safer to keep history’s secret, or if the truth will set him free.

YOUNG TERRORISTS – Local Comic Shop Day Exclusive Hardcover.  224 pages. $29.99

From writer Matteo Pizzolo and artist Amancay Nahuelpan — the creators of the acclaimed  and controversial CALEXIT comic book — comes YOUNG TERRORISTS, in which a young heiress discovers her father is part of a tyrannical new world order and vows to burn his whole empire down.

Local Comic Shop Day CALEXIT “Mulholland Resistance” bandana. $9.99

Join the resistance with this black bandana inspired by the flag of The Mulholland Resistance, Zora’s band of black masked revolutionaries from the pages of Black Mask Studios’ breakout hit CALEXIT.

Local Comic Shop Day Exclusive: DIY Lenticular Hardcover Options for BLACK and YOUNG TERRORISTS

Artist Amancay Nahuelpan provides illustrated lenticular cards, which shops or readers can affix to their Local Comic Shop Day book for a DIY lenticular cover or keep separate as a special collectible sticker.

The government has dispatched Amanda McKee – the technopath codenamed Livewire – to investigate the ruins of a secret facility formerly run by Toyo Harada, the most powerful telepath on Earth and her former mentor. In his quest for world betterment at any cost, Harada sought out and activated many potential psiots like himself. Those who survived, but whose powers he deemed to have no value to his cause, were hidden away at this installation. But Livewire, having studied Harada’s greatest strengths and learned his deepest weaknesses, senses opportunity where he once saw failure. A young girl who can talk to birds… A boy who can make inanimate objects gently glow… To others, these are expensive disappointments. But, to Livewire, they are secret weapons…in need of a leader. Now, as a mechanized killer called Rex-O seeks to draw them out, Livewire and her new team of cadets will be forced to put their powers into action…in ways they never could have imagined…

Moonshine Local Comic Shop Day Cover Revealed

Image Comics has announced a special cover of Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso’s forthcoming Moonshine #1 in celebration of this year’s Local Comic Shop Day.

The cover will feature black and white art by Frank Miller and will be available to comic shop retailers with Diamond Code JUL168777 and on shelves on Local Comic Shop Day—Saturday, November 19th.

Set during Prohibition, and deep in the backwoods of Appalachia, MOONSHINE #1 tells the story of Lou Pirlo, a city-slick “torpedo” sent from New York City to negotiate a deal with the best moonshiner in West Virginia, one Hiram Holt. What Lou doesn’t figure on is that Holt is just as cunning and ruthless as any NYC crime boss. Because not only will Holt do anything to protect his illicit booze operation, he’ll stop at nothing to protect a much darker family secret…a bloody, supernatural secret that must never see the light of day… or better still, the light of the full moon.

Moonshine #1 marks the first time Azzarello and Risso have worked together for Image Comics and reunites the Eisner Award-winning creative team that defined modern crime comics with 100 Bullets… and now puts a horror-twist on a classic gangster tale.
