Archie Comics has provided ComicBook.com with an exclusive preview of The Black Hood Volume 1: The Bullet's Kiss, due in stores and available digitally tomorrow.
The graphic novel collects the first six issues of Duane Swierczynski and Michael Gaydos' gritty re-imagining of the classic Dark Circle Comics hero -- a name which may be familiar to fans of Riverdale as "The Black Hood" may be the name of the gunman responsible for season 1's cliffhanger-inducing shooting.
In the comics, though, he's a lot less...evil.
The Red Hood Volume 1 follows police officer Gregory Hettinger as his life spirals out of control after a deadly encounter with a vigilante - and we get to see just how far he'll go to protect the city of Philadelphia.
You can check out the official solicitation below, and the extended preview in the attached image gallery.
The Black Hood Volume 1 will be in comic shops and available digitally tomorrow, and you can get it in bookstores two weeks from now.
