The Black Hood Q&A with Alex Segura and Duane...

The Red Circle characters have historically been on the periphery of the super-hero scene, with the Archie characters keeping the spotlight for decades. But the newly re-launched Dark Circle line is looking to be one of the biggest news makers of 2015. What should we be expecting from your book, THE BLACK HOOD? DS: I’ll be honest—but Alex Segura first approached me about the idea, I was leery. I’d written a fair amount of superhero comics over the years, and wasn’t sure I wanted to dive back into another. So I pitched him a story that I’d been kicking around as a possible novel, something so dark and violent and Paul Schrader-ish that I...

D: Yeesh… K: What’s up, Slim? You’re looking a bit whiter than usual. What’s the matter, your Docker pants not as wrinkle-free as you like them to be? ::snicker:: D: WhaHUH? Wrinkled pants? Ah, CRAP.

LEGENDS: THE COLLECTION

DC Comics 1993   Here at Crimespree Magazine, we have an on-again, off-again feature called “The Bargain Bin.” The Bargain Bin lets us go on about fun stuff that you may find at your local used bookstore, or even the checkout line at Target. Or… or even a newly added cartoon on the Netflix machine. You get the idea: Fun stuff, cheap. SO. This past Wednesday, I was wandering the shelves at the Local Comic Shop (LCS) and started to get that ITCH. No, not that itch. A topical took care of that. The itch I’m talking about happens when the new books just don’t do it for you that week, and you start prowling around for the PERFECT THING TO BUY. I...
