Evil Ernie is coming back to comics. If you read our recent interview with writer Jesse Blaze Snider, you have an idea what to expect. I've read the script and saw some penciled versions of some of the pages and I'm pretty excited for this. I'll admit I wasn't a huge Evil Ernie fan before but I do like what I've seen so far.
Dynamite Entertainment has passed along some colored pages to give everyone an idea what to expect. You might think you know Evil Ernie but you should definitely check out what is different and what is the same. The first issue is on sale in October. Be sure to let your comic shop know you're interested so they can place their orders. (Or you can order it HERE as well).
EVIL ERNIE #1
Writer: Jesse Blaze Snider
Artist: Jason Craig
ORIGIN OF EVIL PART 1! Ernest Fairchild was a kind and gentle soul...until one day something in him snapped, leading him to one of the most notorious killing sprees in American history. With 665 kills to his name, "Evil Ernie" requires ONE more murder to complete the ritual he started and seal his deal with the Devil. Problem is: he's just been EXECUTED! What led an ordinary boy to become a leather-clad angel of death? How does he wield such blasphemous power? And what is the secret behind his hideous smiley-face button? This October, you may hate the sin, but you'll LOVE the SINNER! Jesse Blaze Snider (HULK: LET THE BATTLE BEGIN) and JASON CRAIG (FREDDY VS. JASON VS. ASH) dive into the heart of darkness with Dynamite's bold, terrifying new relaunch of EVIL ERNIE!== TEASER ==
It might not be fully clear what happens on the first few pages but when you see the pages with text, it all makes sense. I won't go into more detail since I don't want to give too much away.
