[Preview] ROCK CANDY MOUNTAIN #5 by Kyle Starks – Origin to World’s Toughest Hobo Revealed in Second Story Arc

MAKE WAY FOR MORE ROCK CANDY MOUNTAIN THIS NOVEMBER

Cartoonist Kyle Starks (SEXCASTLE, Rick and Morty) continues his hobo-riffic historical fiction series with ROCK CANDY MOUNTAIN #5, which kicks off the second, and final, story arc—and reveals the dramatic origin story of the World’s Toughest Hobo.

We travel through deals with devils, world wars, trench battles, magical artifacts, shocking turns, and tragic decisions. The world’s only kung-fu hobo epic continues in this exciting flashback adventure.

“We’re heading down the last stretch of track on my hobo kung fu epic,” said Starks, “and I assure you: every single part of this thing is amping up toward a huge climax that you won’t want to miss!”

Select praise for ROCK CANDY MOUNTAIN:

“This book is so good that even the sound effects have literary merit.” —Matt Kindt (Dept. H, MIND MGMT)

“Every aspect of this comic is a blast, from the kinetic visuals to the comedically testosterone-fueled dialogue.” —Paste Magazine

“How many of us have thought ‘Man, I wish O Brother, Where Art Thou? had more hobo death matches!’? Well, Kyle Starks didn’t just think. He got off his ass and made that magic happen!  ROCK CANDY MOUNTAIN, y’all. You can thank him later.” —Jason Latour (SOUTHERN BASTARDS, Spider-Gwen, LOOSE ENDS)

“ROCK CANDY MOUNTAIN’s unique combination of sympathy, humor, and unadulterated weirdness is not to be missed.” —Comics Verse

“With a striking aesthetic and a heady blend of humour and action, ROCK CANDY MOUNTAIN provides a hobo-themed love letter to the classic martial arts movies of old, and given Starks’ impressive pedigree as a creator, this should be viewed as a pretty much essential purchase.” —Big Comic Page

“Ever since I was a boy, I’ve dreamed of riding the rails, hobo style. But I was just too damn scared. Kyle’s ROCK CANDY MOUNTAIN brings me the excitement and danger of boxcar vagrancy with none of the unpleasant associated odors.” —John Allison (Giant Days, Bad Machinery)
