2018 is gonna be pretty damn epic.
Hot off back-to-back breakout books THE DREGS and BEAUTIFUL CANVAS, three MVPs of Black Mask’s 2017 roster are joining forces to kick off 2018. In January, Eric Zawadzki (artist THE DREGS), Dee Cunniffe (colorist THE DREGS), and Ryan K Lindsay (writer BEAUTIFUL CANVAS) will bring you ETERNAL, a powerful blend of action, characterization, heart, and bloody swordfighting.
Also in January, we’re proud to release the collected omnibus for CLANDESTINO, written, illustrated, colored, and lettered by another of Black Mask’s 2017 MVPs: Amancay Nahuelpan, whose CALEXIT absolutely exploded. It was also announced yesterday that Amancay is joining the DC Artists Workshop and we couldn’t be more excited to see what he does in the DCU!
CLANDESTINO is the book that first introduced us to Amancay – a fiery, splatterpunk, fever dream of a comic. Loosely inspired by Amancay’s parents’ experiences during the Chilean coup but fictionalized into a pulpy tale of violent revolution, CLANDESTINO is a wild, full-throttle thrill ride.
A group of isolated shieldmaidens protect their village against a tide of men who think they can take their land from them. Vif takes her band of women off viking to quell the advances of a loitering mystical scumbag, Bjarte. But some battles rage on inside us long after the field is empty, and some opponents won’t ever stay down. Eternal is a haunting story of how vulnerable you make yourself when trying to protect everything around you.
This oversized bande dessinee graphic novella is a love letter to brutal violence and eternal emotions. With hyperdetailed art and gorgeous fluid motion from artist Eric Zawadzki [hot off THE DREGS], this story will be one of the most beautiful and heartbreaking things you will read all year. Written by Ryan K Lindsay, known for marrying emotion to genre in BEAUTIFUL CANVAS and the award winning NEGATIVE SPACE, this self-contained story is aimed to be a boutique item for your shelves, and a gateway gift to others you know and love.

CLANDESTINO: The Complete Collection
Written, penciled, inked, colored, and lettered by Amancay Nahuelpan [CALEXIT, YOUNG TERRORISTS], CLANDESTINO is a tour-de-force of a hyperstylized, splatterpunk, ultraviolent revolution.
The country of Tairona became a no man’s land after the military coup. Guerrrillas were formed across the lands, and rebels unified against the dictator to resist the regime. A high-octane, action-packed thrillride about freedom fighters, their love of country, and a rebellion to seize liberty from tyranny!
Collects issues 1-6.
