Comic Recommendation: The Black Hood


I can’t recommend this comic enough. The Black Hood is about a Philadelphia cop who kills the resident vigilante and then through his personal demons takes over as The Black Hood.

Originally I picked this up because I read that it took place in Philly. Writer Duane Swiercyznski is a resident of Philly and does a great job with a very accurate portrayal of the city.

The publisher is Dark Circle Comics which is an imprint of Archie Comics of all companies. This is a very mature comic and the first comic under the Archie banner to use the word fuck.

It’s currently three issues in so you should be able to find all of them.
