All I needed to read was Kyle Starks in order to get on board with this title. Didn't even bother reading the rest, you can below if you want to!
Eisner-nominated cartoonist Kyle Starks (SEXCASTLE, Rick and Morty) will launch an all-new hobo-tastic action-comedy series, ROCK CANDY MOUNTAIN, this April.
ROCK CANDY MOUNTAIN is full of high action, epic stakes, magic, friendships, trains, punching, kicking, joking, a ton of hobo nonsense, and the Literal Devil. Yeah. The Literal Devil.
“I really wanted to tell an epic journey with major stakes mixed with sort of a mystery and tons of fighting,” said Starks in an interview with Image+. “I also wanted to do some magical realism. And it's hobos. Hobos fighting. I mean, what's more magical than riding around the country, living off the grid?”
The world’s toughest hobo is searching through post-World War II America for the mythological Rock Candy Mountain, and he's going to have to fight his way to get there. Lots of hobo fights. So many hobo fights.
ROCK CANDY MOUNTAIN #1 (Diamond code: FEB170575) hits comic book stores Wednesday, April 5th. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, March 13th.
