Christopher Chance Returns to Pursue his Killer this September

The Eisner-nominated series by acclaimed writer Tom King and artist Greg SmallwoodThe Human Target, resumes this Fall as Christopher Chance dives deeper into the mystery behind his poisoning, and time is running out!

King and Smallwood turn up the heat for Chance in more ways than one, beginning with Book Seven, in comic book stores and participating digital retailers on Tuesday, September 27. After discovering clues, the death of a Green Lantern and a torrid romance with Tora Olafsdottir, a.k.a. Ice, DC’s top bodyguard may meet his match when Beatriz da Costa, otherwise known as Fire, steps into his life. Only time will tell what secrets this flaming femme fatale might hold, and just how badly The Human Target might get burned.

Book Seven of The Human Target features a main cover by artist Smallwood, with a main variant cover by Stanley “Artgerm” Lau, plus a 1 in 25 ratio variant cover by Francesco Mattina. Fans can check with their local comic book store of availability and pre-ordering details. The issue weighs in at 40 pages at a price of $4.99.

Tales of The Human Target delivers more details on what happened before Christopher Chance was poisoned!

While taking an assignment to bodyguard Lex Luthor, Christopher Chance, the Human Target, is poisoned and is in a race against time to find out who’s responsible. On August 23, writer Tom King and a host of fan-favorite artists – Mikel Janín, Rafael Albuquerque, Kevin Maguire, and The Human Target artist Greg Smallwood – team up to tell stories of what happened before Chance drank the poison intended for Lex Luthor in Tales of The Human Target.

In this one-shot anthology, Christopher Chance “teams up” with members of the Justice League International – some of whom already are prominently involved in this story – in four connecting mysteries, and one of them may be responsible for the poison that has The Human Target living on borrowed time.

This 48-pager features an incredible main cover by series artist Smallwood, reminiscent of hard-boiled detective novels of the 60’s and 70’s. The comic also features a variant cover by artist David Marquez and a 1 in 25 ratio variant cover from returning Batman artist Jorge Jiménez. Check your local comic book store for availability and pre-ordering details.

For fans that have missed individual issues of the series and want to catch up all at once, The Human Target Book One collects the first six issues of the series by Tom King and Greg Smallwood and is a great way to catch up on the series to date before the second half of the series starts in September (issue #7 on sale September 23).
