Preview The Hobo Kung-Fu Return Of Kyle Starks’ Rock Candy Mountain

by Hannah Means Shannon

A second series of Rock Candy Mountain, one of the funniest books to hit the stands this year, is arriving in November for its final arc. Wait, that’s a sad thing to recognize, even though we want more of the series as soon as possible.

Cartoonist Kyle Starks (Sexcastle, Rick and Morty, Kill Them All) continues his “hobo-riffic historical fiction series” with issue #5 that will reveal the “dramatic origin story of the World’s Toughest Hobo”. That presumably means Jackson. Wonder if he’ll be meeting up with the Devil again.

Image says: “We travel through deals with devils, world wars, trench battles, magical artifacts, shocking turns, and tragic decisions. The world’s only kung-fu hobo epic continues in this exciting flashback adventure”.

Starks explains:

We’re heading down the last stretch of track on my hobo kung fu epic. And I assure you: every single part of this thing is amping up toward a huge climax that you won’t want to miss!

Here’s our preview of that epic issue:

Rock Candy Mountain #5 (Diamond code: SEP170768) arrives in comic shops Wednesday, November 8th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, October 16th.
