Are you ready for Dead Man’s Hand? It’s the first original collection of the Deadlands comics series produced by Visionary comics and IDW, and it’s chock-full of Weird West goodness. You get the original comics (Devil’s Six Gun, Massacre at Redwing, Death Was Silent, and Black Water) plus two new stories from Deadlands creator Shane Hensley (Vengeful) and Deadlands Big Bug Matt Cutter (What a Man’s Gotta Do). If that’s not enough, you’ll also get a first-anywhere sneak peek at Ghostwalkers, next year’s Tor novel from New York Times’ best-selling author Jonathan Maberry!
Dead Man’s Hand is coming to comic shops in March 2015, but you’ve got to get your orders in now to be sure that your store will have enough. That might seem weirder than a dead man throwin’ snakes, but that’s just how things work ’round those parts. Check January’s Previews Catalog with your local retailer.
But of course, there’s more! That’s right, friends and neighbors, as you’re pre-ordering Dead Man’s Hand, the Kickstarter for The Cackler graphic novel will launch. This is your chance to hitch your mule to the team bringing you the original story of the secret history behind Deadlands‘ biggest mystery villain, the Cackler! Shane Hensley himself will be writing this story twenty years in the making, and Death Was Silent artist Bart Sears will handle the illustration honors. This comic will change the world of Deadlands forever, in a way no licensed book ever has, and this is your chance at an exclusive edition available nowhere else!
These are excitin’ times in the Weird West, partner. Join us for the first step on the trail to the twentieth anniversary of Deadlands in 2016, and expect adventure and excitement all along the way!
