David Lopez’s ‘BlackHand & IronHead’ coming to print

The Panel Syndicate title arrives as a hardcover from Image Comics this fall.

BlackHand & IronHead, David Lopez’s 2017 digital comic published through Panel Syndicate, will make the jump to print later this year.

Image Comics announced via press release their intent to publish a hardcover collection of the comic in September.

“After many years working only as an artist in the big two, I’ve finally found the courage and I’ve written and drawn my own story, and I’m printing it in Image! Where the world’s best authors publish their works, this is a change of scale, suddenly my public is the whole world, can you believe it?!” said López. “BlackHand & IronHead is sincere, raw, unfiltered and personal, no obligations or compromises, exactly the story I imagined, that’s something I love as a reader and I hope people will love it from my book.”

Here’s how Image describes the series:

In BlackHand & IronHead, Vol. 1, Alexia’s father is the head of a superpowered corporate empire and one of the greatest superheroes of all time, and she desperately wants to take up his mantle. However, upon his sudden death, a woefully unprepared Alexia is confronted with a wealth of well-kept family secrets—including a villainous sister she never knew existed. Can the sisters work together to investigate their father’s mysterious death? Or will they destroy each other in the process?

Blackhand Ironhead was one of several titles published by the digital-only Panel Syndicate, whose loine-up also included Brian K. Vaughan and Marcos Martin’s The Private Eye and Barrier, Ken Niimura’s Umami and Albert Monteys’ Universe. It’s been awhile since they’ve announced any new titles, but all of those are still available on their website.
