"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Brian Wood has unveiled Becky Cloonan’s new cover art for Dark Horse’s upcoming Demo omnibus, which will collect both volumes of their breakout series. As the writer notes, the art is an updated version of the cover for 2003’s Demo #1.
Dark Horse announced last week that it will publish the collection of Wood and Ryan Kelly’s 2008 graphic novel The New York Four and 2010 sequel The New York Five in November, followed by Demo in April. According to Wood, both will be “high-end softcovers,” with plenty of extras, akin to Dark Horse’s 2012 collection of Channel Zero.
Debuting in 2003 from AiT/Planet Lar, Demo told 12 self-contained stories about young people with supernatural powers (well, mostly). Nominated for an Eisner Award, Demo was collected in 2008 by Vertigo, which also published Wood and Cloonan’s six-issue sequel.
