Somewhere in the city slums, Street Tiger wakes up, not even remembering how he survived the explosion and the brutal beating from Egghead’s goon, the Shark. Meanwhile, at the city suburbs of Barrio Crema, what seems to be a drug deal takes place. But as always happens in Nam City, nothing is what it seems!
With an original graphic style, Spanish creator Ertito Montana brings the action of every pulp, exploitation movie, plenty of martial arts, callous gangs and skull-breaking bats!
“I f***ing love this comic – it’s violent, well-written, blackly funny and pretty damn great in every regard. Imagine if you took an artist like Adrian Tomine or Peter Bagge and told them to create the most grindhouse/kung fu/B-grade schlock action epic ever and THIS would be what they might come up with…if they were HALF AS GOOD as Spanish creator Ertito Montana.”
Street Tiger is back to work, but this time he isn’t alone! After his failure taking down the Crime Lord Egghead, the Nam City vigilante enlists the help of the deadly Black Dove. Don’t miss the last issue of this head-busting, knuckle-cracking, exploitation comic by innovative artist Ertito Montana!
“I would encourage anyone that’s been looking for a small press/indie book to sink their teeth into to check out Street Tiger. Street Tiger is different, adventurous in its storytelling and art style and let’s not forget weird. Street Tiger is a weird book, and I’ve been dying to read a weird book for a while.”
Read here the full saga of the Ghost Wolf, the spirit of vengeance of the Northern Wastes. When the clan of the Sons of Corr lost their courage, they were swept by the wild tribes. But there was one man decided to fight… and paid with his life. He will become the vessel for the long, forsaken spirit of vengeance… The Ghost Wolf!
TALES FROM THE CRYPT #2 FEATURES TWO STORIES FROM LEGENDARY COMICS ARTIST BERNIE WRIGHTSON “LOST CLASSICS” FROM LATE CREATOR APPEAR IN COLOR FOR THE FIRST TIMEfrom the official press release . . . . . . .NEW YORK - (March 21, 2017) - The entire comics industry was saddened to learn of the passing of legendary comics artist Bernie Wrightson this past weekend. Wrightson’s name was synonymous with the best the horror comics genre had to offer and he often spoke of the lasting influence EC comics titles such as the original TALES FROM THE CRYPT and VAULT OF HORROR had on his work.So, it seems only appropriate that two of Wrightson’s stories are included in Super Genius’ new revival of the TALES FROM THE CRYPT series.Issue #2 (in comic shops this Wednesday) features two “lost classics” from Wrightson, “Stake Out” and “Feed It!”, both appearing in color for the first time. The two stories had originally appeared in black and white in other publications but when CRYPT editor Jim Salicrup rem…
It was a cold night, but it didn’t stop the faithful from spending some time on the main drag in Oxford PA for the monthly First Friday celebration. This month, the theme was Super-Heroes and employees (and sometimes customers) at several establishments went along with the theme and dressed appropriately. (We had our Batman tee shirt underneath our sweater but spared the innocent, only flashing it to friends.) It was the perfect theme for the recently opened MAROON HORNET COMICS shop at 45 South Third Street in Oxford. Owner Randy Grace employed the mercenary-for-money Deadpool as a store greeter, and local writer Greg Cox was in attendance, signing his new book. The store is fully stocked now, and has an impressive assortment of comics, games, posters, and related toys and accessories. Randy and Lori Grace are very friendly and happy to be able to provide a comics outlet in Oxford for local pop culture fans.Greg Cox is a best-selling author, who’s earned a deserved rep…
