Image Comics Announces "Head Lopper" Trade Paperback
The hefty 280-page trade paperback arrives this October
Andrew MacLean (Apocalyptigirl) will release his critically-acclaimed, action-packed indie hit HEAD LOPPER in trade paperback this October, collecting all four double-sized issues.
The Head Lopper, the legendary hero who’d much rather go by Norgal, and the nagging severed head of Agatha Blue Witch arrive on the Isle of Barra to find it overrun with beasts: minions of the Sorcerer of the Black Bog. When Queen Abigail hires Norgal and Agatha to slay the Sorcerer, our heroes trek across the island relieving the horrors of their heads—and playing right into the hands of a master manipulator.
HEADLOPPER, VOL. 1: THE ISLAND OR A PLAGUE OF BEASTS (ISBN: 9781632158864) hits comic book stores Wednesday, October 5th and bookstores Tuesday, October 11th, 2016 and will be available for $19.99. It can be ordered by retailers with the Diamond code: JUL160804. It can be preordered now via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, and Indigo.
