In Comic Book Stores Today
THE WEB #10, which is the final issue, hits stores today. THE HANGMAN co-feature was written by me with art by Tom Derenick and Bill Sienkiewicz, Travis Lanham handling the lettering, and Guy Major on colors. This issue brings everything that's happened in the previous nine issues to an exciting, and hopefully satisfying conclusion.
I'd like to thank everyone who supported this book by purchasing it and/or promoting it. If only there'd been more of you. I'd also like to thank everyone named above, as well as editor Rachel Gluckstern for a really pleasurable experience chronicling the adventures of the Hangman. There was so much more we wanted to do. Alas. Also thanks to my friend Sachiko Sato Castleman who not only lent me her expert knowledge as a critical care nurse in the surgical intensive care unit at Mass General Hospital, but became an ongoing character in this series as well.
Finally, thanks to all of the other writers and artists involved with the Red Circle characters, particularly fellow writers, Brandon Jerwa, Eric Trautmann, and Matthew Sturges. Brandon and Eric will be continuing on with these characters in the MIGHTY CRUSADERS mini-series, the first issue of which goes on sale July 14th. Don't miss it.
Come back here next week for an insiders look into the world of THE HANGMAN.
