Set in the 1970s, pharmacist Bob Benton has settled into his mundane life. He enjoys his daily routine, but just below the surface are his memories of being a hero and fighting crime. He is also suffering from post war PTSD as the social landscape quickly changes around him. Suddenly, he is back to being a vigilante and beginning again as Black Terror.
Writer Max Bemis (Moon Knight, Polarity, Centipede) is at the helm, resurrecting the Golden Age character for Dynamite Comics this week. With art by Matt Gaudio (John Wick, Bettie Page) and Ruairi Coleman (KISS/Army of Darkness), colors by Brittany Pezzillo, and letters by Taylor Esposito of Ghost Glyph Studios, the limited series will also feature covers by Francesco Francavilla, David Nakayama, Erica Henderson, Adam Gorham, and Jorge Fornes.
Bemis says, “Black Terror is, historically, pretty much what his name implies, a semi-tortured brutal vigilante. This is obviously a really open canvas to add to his mythology and help shape who he might be personally, to tell more odd stories about him and take chances as a storyteller.”
Black Terror #1 will be available this Wednesday October 2. Head to your local comic shop to purchase your copy of the comic. Go to Dynamite’s website for more on the series, or if you prefer digital, look for it on ComiXology, Dynamite Digital, iBooks, Kindle, and more.
