What it’s about
: In 1888, Jack the Ripper stalked the foggy streets of London slitting the throats of women and ripping their bodies open. In 1878, during the Lincoln County War in the American Wild West, Billy the Kid led his gang of Regulators across a bloody trail of ruthless, vengeance-fueled assassinations. Two of history’s most notorious killers. Two legends that captured the fascination of the newspapers and terrorized the public. Two men that never met. Or did they? Read the ferociously untrue story of two of history’s greatest villains — The Gentleman Slayer – Jack the Ripper vs. The Wild West Gunslinger – Billy the Kid — as they face off in the bloody, brutal, merciless new graphic novel, The Kid and the Ripper! Written by Monster Elementary‘s Nicholas Doan, illustrated by Wolverine artist Jake Bilbao, featuring colors by the one and only Felipe Araujo, lettered by DC’s League of Super Pets artist Bobby Timony, and featuring a painted cover by Marvel Masterpieces artist David Palumbo!
