JACK HAMMER: PAPER HERO #1

Release Date: January 31, 2018
In an all-new one-shot, JACK HAMMER is back, balancing super-powered action with private-eye sensibilities to give readers the kind of high octane, street-level gut-punch fans of series like Daredevil and Kill or Be Killed crave!
With nothing left to lose, Monkey Business, one of Jack McGriskin’s oldest super-powered enemies, cuts loose and rampages through the streets of Boston!
Series writer Brandon Barrows (Mythos: Lovecrafts Worlds) comments, “Jack McGriskin has been a part of me for more than half a decade and I’m thrilled that he’s back. And I’m thrilled that, with the more than able help of artist Bill Blankenship, I’m finally able to tell this particular story.
“Jack is a tough guy, but even tough guys have vulnerabilities, things that get to them, and this is a story about something that affects Jack in an extremely deep way. After the events of the USURPER series, he’s already been shaken up a bit by things he was forced to do, but this is a story that really rocks him to his core. These are events that will leave him questioning himself for a long time.
It’s a story that affected me while I wrote it — I almost wasn’t sure I could go through with it, but now, I think it’s a story that I needed very much to tell. I hope readers will understand why when they read it for themselves.”
