Yours Truly, Robert Bloch

Another interesting title that’s not necessarily the first thing to jump out at you in June amidst the dinosaurs of JURASSIC PARK and the first James Patterson project is a very special presentation of a classic Robert Bloch short story.

Starting with June 16th’s issue #1 release, we’ll be doing a three-part adaptation/re-telling of Bloch’s “Yours Truly, Jack the Ripper” story. This prose tale by the PSYCHO writer looks at the appearance of a present-day Ripper who just might be the real Spring-Heeled Jack.

The pedigree of the folks adapting the book is sound, too: much-lauded horror writer Joe R. Lansdale and his brother John L. Lansdale are penning the scripts, and Eisner-nominated artist Kevin Colden (FISHTOWN) is handling the art and colors in the unique way you see below.

Here’s the regular cover art, the negative-image incentive cover, and page 1 from the first issue, to show you the approach he’s taking.
