Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt are set to reunite in May 2017 for an ongoing relaunch of “The Damned,” spinning out of their acclaimed run on the title from nearly a decade ago that concluded with 2008’s “The Damned: Prodigal Sons” miniseries, with the new series first announced earlier this year at Comic-Con International in San Diego. As part of the relaunch, CBR has the first word that publisher Oni Press is set to release a remastered trade paperback collecting the duo’s first run on the title, set to hit stores in March 2017.

From the Eisner-nominated “The Sixth Gun” creative team of Bunn and Hurtt, with colors by Bill Crabtree, “The Damned” is set in the prohibition era and follows the unknown sinister forces that control the crime cartels and, unbeknownst to most humans, the trade of mortal souls. Caught in the middle of the demonic forces is Eddie, a soulless mortal, with a “special talent” that bodes very useful to the supernatural predicament. Perfect for fans of properties like “Boardwalk Empire,” “Preacher,” and “Hellboy,” “The Damned” is a unique exploration of religious themes in the context of an era that’s caught a lot of attention in the comics world as of late.

Synopsis: During prohibition, gangsters grew rich on our vices, and rivalries between criminal organizations resulted in open war. But unknown to the masses, a more sinister power controlled the crime cartels, using greed, gluttony, lust and other sins to fuel a more lucrative trade: mortal souls. Enter Eddie, a mortal who lost his soul long ago. Caught in the middle of competing demonic families, any other human would’ve gotten the ax long ago. But Eddie’s got a special talent that keeps him on his feet. One man’s curse is another man’s gift.
THE DAMNED is hard-boiled noir with demons, and the team behind THE SIXTH GUN is bringing it back with new colors, a new format, and a new ongoing tale of tommy guns and hellfire.
