Hawaiian Dick Preview, art by Steven Griffin
The long-awaited third issue of Hawaiian Dick: The Last Resort is… well, actually, we’re still waiting for it. But! It’s now slated for a November release, and an eight-page preview is available online for those who need their jones for Hawaiian Dick fixed.
Hawaiian Dick is the creation of writer B. Clay Moore, with artwork from Steven Griffin. Hawaiian Dick juxtaposes film noir elements with a sixties Hawaii locale, and the result is a story and artwork that are oh-so-easy to lose yourself in. Steven Griffin is a wonderful artist — his poster for the 2003 Exotica event, with exotic women draped on moai, was excellent — and his renderings of tiki bars and the characters that fill them are fantastic. Hawaiian Dick is truly a favorite of mine.
New Line has optioned the Hawaiian Dick comics for adaptation as a movie, with Johnny Knoxville attached to star.
