Exclusive Comics Excerpt: ‘Hawaiian Dick’




Every week, the Comics Page introduces you to brand-new comics by the world's best artists and writers. Manga, superheroes, indie comix — we'll cover them all as our editors select the best the exploding comics world has to offer.

Honolulu, 1954. Ex–mainland cop Byrd has settled down in the islands as a private detective, getting cases thrown his way by his old war buddy Mo Kalama. Mostly, though, he spends his time reminiscing about the past and drinking with his Wahine Friday, Kahami. But when a ghost from the war seems to reappear in the Hawaii skies, Byrd gets pulled into an all-new case.


Today on the Comics Page, we're proud to present an excerpt from Screaming Black Thunder, the newest installment in B. Clay Moore's entertaining tiki noir Hawaiian Dick, drawn by Scott Chantler and Steven Griffin. Issue one is in comics stores now.
