"It is so pleasant to know that in an era that is still chock-a-block overflowing with superheroes Spandex-clad that there is still room for heroes from the old school." —
A tale of blood and vengeance set in the rip-roaring 1930s, this graphic novel stars Arron Day, alias Blackjack, an African-American soldier of fortune. Blackjack returns to his boyhood home in Cairo, joining forces with martial-arts expert Maryam and mercenaries Bo and Red to seek long-overdue revenge on a charismatic Bedouin warlord known as The Cobra.
Hailed by Publishers Weekly as a Notable African-American-Interest Title, this Dover graphic novel marks the first time that issues 1–3 of Blackjack: Book 1: Second Bite of the Cobra have been collected in one deluxe edition.
Exclusive Bonus Material:
New Foreword by Joseph Illidge, editor of Batman: No Man's Land
New Afterword by award-winning inker David Colley
New cover art by Scott Hanna
