Image Comics’ acclaimed crime and music mash-up, Gunning For Hits, will have a new cover by internationally renowned pop artist Butcher Billy. 

Mash-ups are the Butcher’s specialty, frequently combining 80s music figures and comic book imagery, making him the perfect cover artist for the last issue of Gunning For Hits first arc. His work has appeared in Rolling Stone, NME, Wired, Vanity Fair and more. He’s exhibited in London, San Francisco, Miami, Lisbon, Chicago, Dubai and beyond. 

Created by noted music producer Jeff Rougvie (David Bowie, Elvis Costello, Big Star), Gunning For Hits has been praised as “dripping with authenticity.” Artist Moritat (Harley Quinn, Jonah Hex) and colorist/letterer Casey Silver complete the creative team.

An immersive experience, every issue of GFH has an exclusive background feature and Spotify playlist. The main character’s journals are being excerpted on the twitter account @MartinMillsHits, providing clues about his mysterious past.

From the publisher: Set in the shady New York City music scene of the mid-80s, GUNNING FOR HITS stars Martin Mills, a record company talent scout with an inscrutable past. Follow Martin as he attempts to sign a rock band that’ll conquer the world in this music business crime thriller. 

Issue 6: 29 pages of all-new story & backmatter! Brian Slade returns to the stage for a make-or-break worldwide TV broadcast, but not everyone wants him to make it through the show. Billy has that “one bad day” everyone talks about.
