Joe Hill may well have his very own horror imprint over at DC Comics, but he’s also got a series currently being put out by IDW, the publishers of Locke and Key, alongside artist Martin Simmonds, and this week sees the third issue in this 5-issue mini-series come out.
Dying Is Easy #3 catches us up with would-be comic, Syd Homes, trying his best to solve a murder, but failing miserably. Expect slapstick and violence in equal measure. Here’s a preview of the issue, out today from IDW.
From the powerhouse team of Joe Hill (Locke & Key) and Martin Simmonds (Punks Not Dead) comes the third chapter in the inaugural Syd “Sh*t-Talk” Homes mystery!
Syd Homes, having just Indiana Jones’d his way out of certain death, finds himself once again up the creek without a paddle. The Ross Brothers, suspects number one and two respectively in the death of joke stealer and general thief Carl Dixon, have just found themselves an alibi-which means Syd’s back on the Most Wanted list. Good thing he’s totally cool under pressure, because getting out of this jam may or may not involve posing as a stuntman… Well, as they say-life is short, comedy is hard, and dying is really f*cking easy!
