The Black Hood has been on a long road and now he’s back for more. In The Black Hood #1: Season 2, the latest arc in the Dark Circle imprint series kicks off with a man in hiding. Greg Hettinger has hung up his costume, mostly for good, but an assassin known as The Nobody isn’t having that. He’s out for blood and won’t stop until the Black Hood faces him.

THE BLACK HOOD #1: SEASON 2
The acclaimed crime comic returns with an all-new #1 issue—a perfect jumping-on point for new readers. “The Nobody Murders, Part 1”: The Black Hood is no more. Sure, there are rumors that the former cop known as Greg Hettinger is still out there, blending in with the homeless population—and emerging only to stop a violent attack before vanishing again. But the ruthless assassin known as The Nobody considers the Black Hood a loose end, and he’s willing to slaughter dozens to flush him out. How high must the body count rise before Greg steps forward to face an opponent he can’t possibly beat? Dive into the book UPROXX calls “Highly recommended” and THE MIAMI HERALD regards as “Noir fiction fans will surely dig,” as a new season of THE BLACK HOOD kicks off from the killer creative team of Swierczynski and Scott!
