Black Terror Returns with Max Bemis!

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.

Whether they have been tabletop gaming since 1974, just picked up their first set of dice, or just appreciate stunning statues and high quality comic book storytelling – there is something here for everyone!

First and foremost is the first-ever resin statue for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. The next step in the years long strong partnership between Dynamite and Paizo Inc. following years of adapting and expanding the game’s lore in comic book form. The limited-edition statue depicts Seoni, one of the most popular heroes in the Pathfinder universe. She is a powerful Varisian spellcaster who was a no-brainer for a statue with her intricate tattoos and distinct clothing, hand-painted for collectors. 

Seoni stands approximately a foot tall and is available in multiple variants. The “Spellcasting” version depicts Seoni harnessing her unique magic abilities with a plastic effect. A “Battle Ready” edition alternately gives her a staff and an altered pose. Offered for the first time are special “Diamond Eye” variants for both. Adding real diamonds for her pupils to make Seoni really shine and sparkle on the shelf. Only available in limited quantities, the “Diamond Eye” version is a true grail for collectors.

Also releasing are four Pathfinder: Worldscape one-shots previously exclusive to Kickstarter. These fun crossovers bring Dynamite’s flagship characters into the cross-dimensional Pathfinder universe.
