HEDGE KNIGHT RETURNS TO THE LISTS
March 5, 2004
The long delay between the second and third issue of THE HEDGE KNIGHT comic frustrated a lot of my readers. I know. It was frustrating for me as well, and for the good folks at Roaring Studios… so they went out and changed publishers, moving the project from Image to Devil’s Due.
What a difference! The fourth issue of THE HEDGE KNIGHT is now out, and should be on sale at your favorite comic shop, with two variant covers, the “A” cover by Mike S. Miller, and the “B” by Tom Yeates.
And with Devil’s Due, no one will have to wait half a year for the next issue. HEDGE KNIGHT #5 is already roaring down the lists, and will soon be on the stands as well. That one features another gorgeous Mike S. Miller cover, and an stunning alternative by Ted Nasmith, one of the world’s premiere Tolkien artists. You can catch a preview of some of the art for issue #5 by going here.
Devil’s Due and Roaring have also rereleased issues #1-3 in a new collected edition, for those who missed the original comics from Image (all of which sold out upon release). Those should be available in your favorite comics shop as well. There will be one more issue in the Roaring miniseries. Then the entire six-issue story will be released as a trade paperback… with a little something extra.
As I said last time around, I think Mike and Mike and Ben and the Brothers Dabel are doing a magnificent job, but of course I’m prejudiced. So here are a couple of reviews from folks who aren’t:
Roaring has also established a forum where you can talk about the comic with other readers, which can be found here.
