As promised back in January, Eric Powell is bringing back Billy the Kid’s Old Timey Oddities this fall in a new mini-series that pits Billy and the crew from Fineas Sproule’s traveling spectacle of biological curiosities against Jack the Ripper.
Courtesy of Dark Horse, we’re pleased to debut both covers for the second issue, which ships in October. The one up top is by series artist Kyle Hotz, and after the jump you can find one by Eric Powell (along with solicitation information).
Billy the Kid’s Old Timey Oddities and the Ghastly Fiend of London
Writer: Eric Powell
Artists: Kyle Hotz, Eric Powell
Colorists: Daniel Brown, Dave Stewart
On-sale: October 13, 2010
Billy the Kid managed to make it nearly a full day in London without passing out drunk and being carted off to jail, which unfortunately wasn’t long enough to find Jack the Ripper, who is still on the loose. The remaining members of Fineas Sproule’s traveling spectacle of biological curiosities are on the case, but with “freaks” suspected of being behind the Ripper murders, none of them are safe. It’s up to a very hung over Billy and conjoined twins Malcolm and Miles to break out of jail and find the real killer.
