Dark Circle Comics, an imprint of Archie, has provided ComicBook.com with an exclusive preview of Black Hood #7, due out next Wednesday, November 25 and featuring the return of regular series artist Michael Gaydos (Alias, Manhunter).
The issue starts the series' next arc, "The Lonely Crusade," by writer Duane Swierczynski and Gaydos, and features The Black Hood returning to Philly to face his toughest challenge yet.
We're guessing it's probably not Rocky Balboa or the fattening effects of the pizza I bought during a recent press outing to the city...but you never know.
In any event, you can check out the solicitation text for the issue and preview pages below.
"The Lonely Crusade, Part 1"
Greg Hettinger returns to Philadelphia and promises his closest friend, Jessie Dupree, that his hood-wearing vigilante days are over. But it's a promise he's going to struggle to keep — especially when a gang calling themselves "The Crusaders" are prowling the City of Brotherly Love, scooping up "undesirables" and asking if they want to be saved... The second action-packed arc of The Black Hood begins here!
