Dark Horse Comics Previews the Second Issue of BANG!, the New Hit Comic Book Series From Kindt, Torres, Kim, and Piekos
Dark Horse is previewing the second issue of the hit comic book series BANG! by writer Matt Kindt (MIND MGMT), artist Wilfredo Torres (JUPITER’S CIRCLE), colorist Nayoung Kim and letterer Nate Piekos.
In the issue, a constant stream of terrorist attacks follows John Shaw, and the only thing that keeps him one step ahead is a collection of power-giving inhalers and a hatred of shoes. When he’s once again caught in the middle of a terrorist plot, Shaw finds that these random attacks may not be so random–and the fabric of reality may be at stake.
“I want these characters to seem familiar…but familiar like a voice in the dark that you recognize as a friend,” said writer Matt Kindt. “The voice puts you at ease…until you realize something is off. Then the light goes on. That voice isn’t your friend. And it definitely has ill intent.”
The first printing of BANG! issue 1 sold out ahead of publication, following widespread press attention and endorsements from Keanu Reeves and some of the comic book industry’s most respected writers and artists. Issue 2 of BANG! is on sale from Dark Horse Comics on March 18, 2020.
Matt Kindt is the New York Times bestselling writer and artist of the comics and graphic novels Dept. H, Mind MGMT, Revolver, 3 Story, Super Spy, 2 Sisters, and Pistolwhip, as well as Justice League of America (DC), Spider-Man (Marvel), Unity, Ninjak, Rai, and Divinity (Valiant). He has been nominated for 4 Eisner and 6 Harvey Awards (and won once). His work has been published in French, Spanish, Italian, German and Korean. The author lives in St. Louis, MO, with his wife and Dept H. collaborator, the colorist and artist Charlene Kindt.
