They say the Hangman is nothing more than an urban legend. A spook story told to scare criminals straight. But those who encounter him—like hitman “Mad Dog” Mike Minetta—know different. They know that when he comes for you… you’re dead already. Join fan-favorite writer Frank Tieri (WOLVERINE, BATMAN) and artist extraordinaire Felix Ruiz (WOLVERINE MAX, HALO) for an ongoing tale of horror, the supernatural and violence…  and learn why some men may never be redeemed.

Greg Hettinger knew the risks that came with being a cop. That one night, he might not come home. But as he inches closer to discovering the truth about the mysterious mobster known as “The Connection,” he may have to come to terms with breathing his last breath while wearing a black hood.

It’s all been leading to this—the explosive conclusion to “The Bullet’s Kiss,” the first arc of THE BLACK HOOD by Duane Swierczynski (Canary, The Wheelman, Judge Dredd) and Michael Gaydos (Alias, The Pulse.)

Swierczynski and Gaydos have taken Hettinger through the ringer – from a hero cop to disfigured vigilante with a drug addiction – to bleeding out while on the run from his fellow police officers. Everything comes full circle in THE BLACK HOOD #5 as Hettinger confronts the man behind Philadelphia’s drug racket – but will there be anything left of Officer Hettinger when all is said and done?

If The Black Hood manages to survive his encounter with The Connection, he’s going to be paying for his sins for a long, long time.
