"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Dark Horse has provided Comic Book Resources with the exclusive debut of its trailer for its collection of Bloodhound, the 2004 series by Dan Jolley, Leonard Kirk and Robin Riggs.
Originally published by DC Comics, the title follows Travis “Clev” Clevenger, a brutal ex-police detective who specializes in finding superhuman criminals. Sentenced to prison for the murder of his partner romantic rival, Clev reluctantly accepts a deal from the FBI to track down a super-powered serial killer before he can strike again.
Titled Bloodhound, Vol. 1: Brass Knuckle Psychology, the 198-page collection includes issues 1-4 and 6-10; DC’s Firestorm appeared in the fifth issue, and therefore it couldn’t be part of the Dark Horse edition. Jolley suggested to Robot 6 in January, when the collection was announced, that there could be life for Bloodhound beyond this volume.
“Whether or not more Bloodhound stuff comes out depends on a number of different factors, and the public’s reaction to this collection is certainly one of them,” he said. “But no, the story is far from complete. I’ve got at least several more years’ worth of material ready to go.”
Bloodhound, Vol. 1: Brass Knuckle Psychology arrives in June.
