AfterShock’s hit series Chicken Devil returns this October with Volume 2: Chicken Devils [PREVIEW]

This October, AfterShock’s hot chicken sandwich-inspired vigilante series CHICKEN DEVIL is back with a brand new volume, and this time our hero is not flocking around!

Written by Brian Buccellato and illustrated by Mattia Monaco, CHICKEN DEVILS sees our clucky hero Mitchell Moss thrust in the middle of a new gang war, battling his family as they actively thwart his efforts to keep them safe, and forced into teaming up with the kill-crazy bad cops!

Speaking about the second arc, Buccellato said “A darkly comedic revenge story the tone of TV shows like Barry or Fargo, CHICKEN DEVIL puts an edgy spin on vengeful antiheroes like The Punisher and John Wick. It’s the story of a mild-mannered family man and restauranteur who breaks bad when the Russian mob murders his family. With nothing to lose, he embarks on a bloody path of revenge.”

“There’s only one problem – he’s not equipped to be a badass. He’s not ex-military or special ops. His only unique set of skills? He makes really good chicken. So how does a regular guy even get into the murdery revenge game? Well, if you read the first volume, he did it with determination, a lot of luck, and mostly by failing upwards.”

He continued, adding “Well, I wrote the first volume with a cliffhangery ending that left the door open for a sequel. SPOILER for those who haven’t read the first volume – After Mitch’s attempt to take out the Russian mob fails miserably, he gets bailed out by the two detectives, who end the first series with a LOT of blood on their hands. So, it seemed like a no-brainer to explore where Mitch and the cops go from there. I also wanted a chance to explore Mitch’s family relationships, since they were presumed dead for most of the first volume.”

Featuring lettering by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou, a main cover by Hayden Sherman and an incentive variant cover from Francis Manapul, CHICKEN DEVIL VOL 2: CHICKEN DEVILS #1 goes on sale 12th October 2022, and you can feast your eyes on some preview artwork below.
