    Quietly – or not so quietly, if you’re paying attention – Black Crown is emerging as one of the best imprints in comics. Shelly Bond has been building up an incredible roster of creators and titles, all of which have their own flavor and tone, not just in the Black Crown line, but across all of comics. “Assassinistas” is the perfect avatar for that. From Tini Howard and Gilbert Hernandez, two creators that I would have never paired together, but go together like chocolate and peanut butter, “Assassinistas” has been an insanely fun ride. It is rare that we, as a site, review four issues in a row of any series, but every single issue has been reviewed so far, which says something about how much we dig this book. Oh, and hey! That’s our blurb on the cover! Neat!

    We are thrilled to present this exclusive preview of “Assassinistas” #5, which hits shelves on May 16th.

    Cover by Gilbert Hernandez
    Written by Tini Howard
    Illustrated by Gilbert Hernandez
    Flatted by Robin Henley
    Colored by Rob Davis
    Lettered by Aditya Bidikar

    “Pack Some Heat With That Lunch!” Octavia, Dominic, and Taylor come together as a new generation takes shape—and takes swings at each other. Daddy’s home.

    Thanks again to Black Crown/IDW, and make sure to pick up the book on Wednesday!
