The Hated, the new David F. Walker comic book series set in an alternative Spaghetti western
David F. Walker , co-writer of the recent series published by ECC , 'Naomi' , together with Brian Michale Bendis , has just
announced that he will launch his own series, titled 'The Hated' , alongside
cartoonist Sean Damien Hill and
colored by Shaun Struble .
According to the description made by Walker himself, the series will be
set in a Spaghetti western, in which he poses an alternative story where the
American Civil War ended very differently from the known one.
"It is a tribute to the Spaghetti
westerns and the Blaxploitation genre, starring African-American actors,
telling the feats of African-American gunmen and outlaws."
'The Hated', edited by its own Solid Comix label,
is scheduled to go on sale in US stores in the spring of this year.
