Ben Templesmith Returns to Wormwood with WORMWOOD: BINGO NIGHT IN VALHALLA


How great a day is this? 
First, it's Friday. 
Second, my head cold seems to be subsiding. 
Third, I found out there is a Donald Trump comic coming out. 
Fourth: One day left until Free Comic Book Day.
Fifth: Ben Templesmith is releasing a new Wormwood series in July!

How's that for burying the lead?

I have so loved Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse and Wormwood: Calamari Rising, that the idea of a new Wormwood series fills me with Geekstacy!

Templesmith's character, Wormwood, is some kind of demigod from another dimension who happens to be a worm.  He saves the world from all kids of ungodly horrors and supernatural monsters.  He also gets around by burrowing into the body of a dead man -- usually a snappily dressd one.

It's fantastic stuff!
