Press Release:

JHU Comic Books is proud to present a fantastic signing with two great talents, showcasing a great original debut in Nightworld #1 and a fantastic new release of Billy Dogma material in “Fear, My Dear.”

Dean Haspiel (The Fox, Fantastic Four, American Splendor) uses his near-mythological talents to bring some new Billy Dogma stories to us in the much-loved “Fear, My Dear.” His “The Fox: Freak Magnet” has also just recently been released by Archie Comics and is a treat to behold!

If you love independent comics, especially weird, crazy and fun ones, you REALLY don’t want to miss it!
