Regular readers of #thenewblack on Komplicated should be very familiar with the name Arron Day or his nom du guerre Blackjack. Created by Alex Simmons, writer extraordinaire, Blackjack is an action adventure hero both in the pulp vein and is an actor in those very days of yesteryear, the 1930s. A time of adventure. A time for adventure.
And now, it is a time for new adventures.
Mr. Simmons has decided to share the latest adventure of Blackjack on the titular hero’s website. With art by John Jennings (whose Fantastic Blackness posters this very website ran last week), Blackjack rides again in a brand new adventure entitled "Heart Of Evil."
Take a look at the first chapter.
Mr. Simmons promises to update this new thrilling tale once a week. The above first chapter appeared on Hallowe’en.
This new story was originally slated to appear in a proposed Blackjack graphic novel collection, a goal towards which Alex is still working. While readers are visiting Blackjack’s website, they can find information about donations and how to support this fun work.
In the meantime, continue checking in here at Komplicated for the first Blackjack adventure The Second Bite of The Cobra and check his own website once a week for the new adventures of Arron Day, the man known as Blackjack!
