Image Teases David Lapham's 'Stray Bullets' Return

Image Comics' Ron Richards shared David Lapham's infamous Stray Bullets logo on the publisher's website and various social media outlets earlier today. The award winning black and white noir masterpiece has been been out of print for many years, and goes for big bucks on eBay and Amazon. The series was originally self published under David and Maria Lapham's publishing company El Capitan Books.

There hasn't been a new Stray Bullets story since the black-and-white crime comics anthology Noir: A Collection of Crime Comics published by Dark Horse Comics.

I was lucky enough to meet Mr. Lapham a few years ago at Atomic Comics. It wasn't long after his Vertigo series Young Liars was cancelled and we talked about why he hasn't republished Stray Bullets. I'm glad someone at Image finally convinced him to bring the series back. I miss Amy Racecar.

It's still unclear if Image is publishing new stories or republishing the classic 32 issue run.
