(W) Frank J. Barbiere (A/CA) Victor Santos
From BOOM! Entertainment.
WHY WE LOVE IT: Here at BOOM!, we've never shied away from exploring the dark crevices of the superhero genre that other publishers can't. From Mark Waid's Irredeemable to Mike Carey's Suicide Risk, we love finding new ways to push the boundaries of our medium's favorite genre.
WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: Black Market mixes the visceral noir/pulp sensibilities of Frank J. Barbiere's Five Ghosts and Victor Santos' Filthy Rich with a truly modern take on superhero mythos. If you love Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips' work on Sleeper like we do, this series is for you.
WHAT'S IT ABOUT: Ray Willis is a broken man, a disgraced medical examiner making ends meet by preparing corpses at a funeral parlor. His scientific genius is being wasted ... that is, until his estranged criminal brother Denny shows up on his doorstep, supposedly cleaned up and proposing a once in a lifetime partnership to cure not just cancer, but all disease. The catch? It exists within the DNA of superheroes.

PREVIEWS Prevue: Cullen Bunn's The Brothers Dracul From AfterShock

“I'm thrilled to be working on BROTHERS DRACUL, a 15th century horror tale that explores the "true" history of the infamous Vlad the Impaler. With this book, we've brought the entire creative team of UNHOLY GRAIL along. I'm working with artist Mirko Colak, colorist Maria Santaolalla, and letterer Simon Bowland once again. We had so much fun telling a horror story with King Arthur as its central figure, we had to get the gang back together for this story, featuring one of the most shocking icons of horrific history!” -Cullen Bunn
