Official PR follows:
Joe Casey and Mike Huddleston’s BUTCHER BAKER, THE RIGHTEOUS MAKER is back with a new, trade paperback edition available this November. The paperback will collect the complete series, issues #1-8, plus feature bonus material.
Butcher Baker was the preeminent all-American superhero. Now he’s…getting laid. A lot. But one last mission could signal his return to glory, and now he’s back on the blacktop! BUTCHER BAKER, THE RIGHTEOUS MAKER is a balls-out, surreal, super-epic that fans won’t want to miss.
“We took our time putting this work out in trade, but I promise it’s worth the wait. It’s a thick, girthy slice of comic book manna that I’m extremely proud of,” said Casey. “It’s superheroes at their seediest. It’s a psychedelic landmine that I guarantee will blow your head clean off. In a good way, of course.”
BUTCHER BAKER, THE RIGHTEOUS MAKER (ISBN: 978-1-5343-0333-1, Diamond Code MAR178439) will hit stores on Wednesday, November 15th. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, October 9th.
