Never mind Amazing Spider-Man or Justice League, the big release of this week may be a new issue of Richard Starkings’ Hip Flask, with full-issue art by the incomparable Ladronn. How much of an event is this, for fans? Starkings gave some sense of that while talking to Multiversity Comics:
I launched [spin-off series] ELEPHANTMEN because I had a lot of ideas for the HIP FLASK characters begging my attention and I couldn’t wait on Ladrönn. I met with him recently and pointed out that I completed 50 issues of ELEPHANTMEN in the time it has taken him to finish this 4th issue of HIP FLASK!
The fourth issue is the penultimate one; it’ll be interesting – and somewhat tortuous – to see how long it takes for the final issue to be finished.
