In what Dark Circle is calling the first season of The Black Hood, former police officer Gregory Hettinger has given up being the Black Hood. Now, with the announcement of The Black Hood #1: Season 2 kicking off this September, you figure someone has to be under the hood.
The new season by writer Duane Swierczynski, artist Greg Scott, colorist Kelly Fitzpatrick and letterer Rachel Deering starts with a new assassin in town known as The Nobody who is slaughtering dozens of innocents trying to draw out the Black Hood. How long before Hettinger suits up again?
And the new season will take the vigilante out of Philadelphia and into new territories.
"The exciting thing about this next season is that we'll be taking the Hood on the road. The one thing he's always had in his corner is his knowledge of the City of Philadelphia. But that won't do him much good this time around," says series writer Duane Swierczynski. "I'm seriously excited about the Hood's new antagonist, who is smart, focused, aggressive and relentless — pretty much the worst kind of person to have on your ass."
THE BLACK HOOD #1: SEASON 2
The acclaimed crime comic returns with an all-new #1 issue—a perfect jumping-on point for new readers. "The Nobody Murders, Part 1": The Black Hood is no more. Sure, there are rumors that the former cop known as Greg Hettinger is still out there, blending in with the homeless population—and emerging only to stop a violent attack before vanishing again. But the ruthless assassin known as The Nobody considers the Black Hood a loose end, and he's willing to slaughter dozens to flush him out. How high must the body count rise before Greg steps forward to face an opponent he can't possibly beat? Dive into the book UPROXX calls "Highly recommended" and THE MIAMI HERALD regards as "Noir fiction fans will surely dig," as a new season of THE BLACK HOOD kicks off from the killer creative team of Swierczynski and Scott!
