The Executioner Returns in Comic Format April 16th
This wednesday marks Mack Bolan's return to comic book format!
Don Pendleton’s The Executioner: The Devil’s Tools is written by our own popular Mack Bolan novelist Douglas Wojtowicz, with interiors by SL Gallant (Marvel Adventures) and colors by Luis Antonio Delgado (Gene Simmons House of Horrors). Rebecca A. Wrigley will be creating covers. Mack Bolan, a.k.a. the Executioner, has been the inspiration for countless payback warriors since the series’ inception in 1969 (Yes, Punisher, we're looking at you. Don't roll your eyes at us!). In The Devil’s Tools, Bolan returns in an explosive five-issue mini-series that pits him against a conglomerate of enemies who are representative of the Executioner’s many literary conflicts—from his War against the Mafia to his battles with the KGB in the ‘80s, and modern organized crime and terrorism.
We're stoked to spotlight the special alternative vintage cover for issue 1 by original Bolan novel cover artist Michael G. Herring. Herring's original Bolan artwork will be featured for each issue variant of the miniseries. Below is the alternative cover for the first issue.
