Never Mind the Moribund! It’s time for The Tini Martini Hour!

How fitting that in the build up to Halloween we honor the day of writer Tini Howard’s birth — Last Wednesday, 10/24 — with a “Greatest Hits” of her BLACK CROWN series. It’s either that or suffer the consequences of a hex from Comics’ Glorious Witch Goddess of the Demimonde!

“ASSASSINISTAS is what happens when Dominic Price takes a semester off with his boyfriend, his mom, and $40,000 worth of black market bounty-hunting equipment.”
—Tini Howard, co-creator/writer

ASSASSINISTAS #1 with a creators’ commentary track by Howard and co-creator/artist Gilbert Hernandez can be found in the 240-page beast that is the BLACK CROWN OMNIBUS! Out in December!

EUTHANAUTS #4 retailer incentive cover art by co-creator/artist Nick Robles.

“EUTHANAUTS is a book about death and dying as a universal concept. How do these ideas contribute to our relationship with a death space we haven’t yet discovered, and what’s behind the light at the end of the tunnel?
—Tin Howard, co-creator/writer

A few panels from GHOST-WALK WITH ME by Howard and artist Philip Bond from the BLACK CROWN QUARTERLY #3, wherein we get the gist of BLACK CROWN’s Canon Street real estate via two goth girls and one annoying tourist in tow.

See you here next week for another magical Happy Hour at
