Marksman and Buckshot: Issue 1

It’s funny the things you find lurking in your email inbox when you’re having a bit of a clean up/purge. Today I found this…

… a fake comic book cover designed by the inimitable Terry Cooper for use as promo material for The Black Room. It’s one of those great questions in comic books – Assuming superheroes are real, what are comic books about? In Watchmen, it’s pirates. In “The Boys”, comic books chronicle the real-world adventures of various “supes”. In “The Black Room”… well, we’ve never answered that question.

But, somewhere, in some alternate reality, I’d like to imagine that The Marksman and Buckshot are still righting wrongs, even if it’s only on a printed page.
