Any book that’s compared to “The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen” should be worthy of your attention. This time around, the Powell, Hotz duo take Billy The Kid to Loch Ness for another exhilarating literary history adventure. Billy the Kid’s Old Timey Oddities and the Orm of Loch Ness is set for release just in time for Halloween, this October.

Official press release:

July 6, MILWAUKIE, OR—From the minds of Eric Powell (The Goon, Buzzard, Chimichanga) and Kyle Hotz (Buzzard, Zombie, The Hood, The Agency) comes the next arc in Billy the Kid’s wild adventures!

The world believes the notorious outlaw Billy the Kid was killed by Pat Garrett, but in reality the Kid is very much alive, the hired gun of Fineas Sproule’s traveling spectacle of biological curiosities—or “freaks,” as Billy calls them. In their latest adventure, Billy and crew head to Loch Ness to rescue their lizard-skinned comrade Callahan from the wrath of Count Dracula.

Praise for the work of Eric Powell and Kyle Hotz:

“At last, a lit-and-history riff to rival The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.”

—Entertainment Weekly

“If The Goon wasn’t enough evidence, Billy the Kid’s Old-Timey Oddities is Exhibit B in the case that something just ain’t right in Eric Powell’s head.”

—The Fourth Rail

Billy the Kid’s Old Timey Oddities and the Orm of Loch Ness is on sale October 17, 2012!
