WAR-TOYS # 3 Out this week!
After a few weeks delay, Image Comics release Elephantmen: War Toys No.3 this week. The 40 page $2.99 comic will be available in the USA on Wednesday (30th April) and in the UK on Thursday (1st May). A choice of two covers are available: one by Boo Cook (left, above) and the other by Ladronn (right, above).
The title strip is written by Richard Starkings with art by Moritat, and described thus:
"Even in the face of blistering resistance, it seems that nothing can stop MAPPO's advance across Scandinavia. But as Hip Flask comes face to face with the last vestiges of humanity in the frozen Scandinavian wastes, he discovers that only the dead see the end of warfare."
The back up strip is once again Brickman by myself. (A panel of which is shown below.) After the War-Toys mini series concludes with this issue, the regular Elephantmen comic resumes soon with No.12. Brickman skips that issue, but will return in No.13 in the summer.
The issue also features a nice tribute to 1980's Marvel UK colourist Steve Whitaker (who also coloured V For Vendetta) who died recently.
