Sometimes a title grabs you and you think, "Damn, that sounds really cool." Such is the case with Billy the Kid's Old Timey Oddities. Having talent like Eric Powell and Kyle Hotz behind it certainly helps. The next arc of this series has just been announced from Dark Horse Comics. Here's the synopsis from the publisher:
The world believes the notorious outlaw Billy the Kid was killed by Pat Garrett, but in reality the Kid is very much alive, the hired gun of Fineas Sproule’s traveling spectacle of biological curiosities—or “freaks,” as Billy calls them. In their latest adventure, Billy and crew head to Loch Ness to rescue their lizard-skinned comrade Callahan from the wrath of Count Dracula.
The first chapter of Billy the Kid's Old Timey Oddities was published back in 2006. I haven't read this -- or heard about it for that matter -- but I'm so in now. Powell has quickly become one of my favorite creators between books like The Goon and Chimichanga so I'll check out just about anything he's involved in. Billy the Kid's Old Timey Oddities and the Orm of Loch Ness is due out on October 17th, 2012.
What do you think of this addition to the Billy the Kid mythos? What supernatural creature should he tackle next?
