McCool and Templesmith’s Choker #1 Release Date Brought Forward to Feb 10th


I have just learned that the release date of Ben McCool and Ben Templesmith’s Choker #1 has been brought forward from its original released date of February 24th, 2010, to February 10th, 2010. That’s this coming Wednesday, so don’t forget to keep an eye out for it when you hit the store this week.

If you hadn’t considered picking up a copy of the book, then I’d strongly advise you do so, because this series is set to be phenomenal. Remember how crazy people went over Chew #1? Today, you can’t buy a copy of that issue for the same weigh in gold! Choker #1 will fly of the shelves just as fast, so make sure to grab a copy while you can! Don’t miss out!

Written by Ben McCool with artwork by Ben Templesmith, Choker is a hard boiled noir fable set on an unconventional backdrop. Johnny “Choker” Jackson, is an ex-Shotgun City police detective who lives in his own rendition of hell. His case of Alien Hand Syndrome has manifested into the most psychotic entity on the planet, he’s stuck working at a deadbeat detective agency, and he’s engaged in a squalid and involuntary amour with an otherworldly creature that dwells beneath his bathtub. That, believe it or not, is just for starters. But there’s prospective light at the end of the tunnel: a high-profile con Johnny once put behind bars is at large, and not even the city’s elite has been able to track the sleazebag down. The police department has offered Johnny a deal: put the rogue back in his below regulation-sized cell and he’s got a job for life. However, it comes at a price, and it’s one nobody will see coming. But if you want something, and want it real bad, what would you be willing to do to get it?
