It’s written by Charles Soule (Letter 44, Daredevil, She-Hulk) and drawn by Ryan Browne (God Hates Astronauts, Bedlam) and it is (any guesses?) CURSE WORDS #1! We think you’re gonna love this book so much that we have Ryan Browne in-store ALL DAY Wednesday, January 18th, to assist you in your CURSE WORDS #1 purchasing. All. Day.
