The hardcover that collects THE LONESOME HUNTERS and THE LONESOME HUNTERS: THE WOLF CHILD is coming this fall.

Dark Horse Books gave us the word that THE LONESOME HUNTERS LIBRARY EDITION will be available in bookstores October 1 and comic shops October 2; it’s now available for pre-order at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and other sites. Written and illustrated by Tyler Crook (HARROW COUNTY, HEADLESS HORSEMAN HALLOWEEN ANNUAL 2023), the saga will be accompanied in the 192-page volume by a cover gallery and behind-the-scenes process art (see exclusive samples below). The synopsis: “An old and out-of-practice monster hunter in hiding crosses paths with a young girl that forces him to confront chaotic creatures. As the beasts invade their tenement, the two new friends set off on a supernatural road trip to stop these ancient evils. The story explores the ways that youth informs adulthood and how early traumas can haunt us throughout our lives.”
