“Judge Dredd” Alt Poster by Mickaël Journou!

Mickaël Journou created this cool alt Judge Dredd poster.  Here’s what he had to say about it:

I recently rewatched the movie. An all-time classic for me (yeah, huge fan of Sly! haha). I’m obviously older now so I couldn’t help to wonder if our current society is heading towards what we see in that movie. This is my new full digital art poster!

TOO MANY BULLETS: A Nathan Heller Case by Max Allan Collins is Coming!

It’s no secret. I’m a huge fan of Max Allan Collins’ Nathan Heller series.  In it, detective Nathan Heller gets involved with famous cases throughout history.  Max Collins does an exhaustive amount of research for each book and provides a solution to each case, that is sometimes at odds with history.  As the series progresses, Heller ages in real time.

Hard Case Crime has announced that a new Heller book will be out in the Fall of 2023.  Titled Too Many Bullets, it will have Heller investigating Robert Kennedy’s assassination.  That’s the cover above, and it’s a beauty painted by Paul Mann.

If you’re a fan of alternative history or detective stories, heck, if you’re a fan of well written books, then you owe it to yourself to check out the Nathan Heller tales by Max Allan Collins.

ABOVE SNAKES by Sean Lewis & Hayden Sherman is Coming!

As I was going through the latest issue of Previews, I came across Above Snakes by Sean Lewis & Hayden Sherman.

A supernatural Western about DIRT, a man out to avenge his wife’s death with nothing but a bloodthirsty vulture to guide his way. What happens when the story of Dirt’s pain gets stolen by others and the world he thought he understood turns upside down? Featuring the incredible work of the team behind THUMBS and THE FEW, this thrilling new series is best described as Deadwood meets The Sandman.

Above Snakes drops January 24, 2023.  If this sounds like something you’d like  pre-orders are available now.
