First look and "book tour" details for Image Comics' "The Red Hook"
It's always nice to see a webcomic become so popular that it gets collected in print. Such is the case with Dean Haspiel's Ringo Award-nominated The Red Hook, a series about a thief who is bestowed with the spirit of altruism and is made a hero after a sentient Brooklyn decides to secede from the United States.
That's gotta be in the top ten comic concepts of all time.
To commemorate the release of the first volume of the series, Image Comics have revealed both some preview pages from the book and dates for a summer promotional tour. Check the tour dates and details below, followed by the Image press release and a preview gallery.
