COMIC BOOK PRESS RELEASE: "San Hannibal: The City of Love and Fear" from Pop! Goes The Icon

‘San Hannibal: The City of Love and Fear’ collection to hit comic book stores June 10
Readers can enjoy the acclaimed neon-noir comic book series in one trade paperback, complete with new, previously unpublished material

Hailed as “a noir treat in monochromatic colored splendor,” “a breath of fresh air,” and “beautiful raw poetry,” Dan Schkade, Jesse Snavlin and JD Faith’s San Hannibal took the comic book world by surprise in 2014 with its cyberpunk spin on classic noir. Over the course of five issues, readers followed hard-luck private detective Ira Avery as he risked life, limb and sanity trying to solve the mysterious disappearance of photojournalist Savannah Loy, uncovering the twisted secrets of the city of San Hannibal along the way.

San Hannibal: The City of Love and Fear collects those five issues in one paperback edition, offering new readers a window into the electric-charged world of San Hannibal, while providing existing fans with a handsome volume to conveniently revisit the twists and turns of this neon-painted mystery. The trade paperback collection, which sports a new cover by Schkade, also features 10 pages of never-before-seen bonus material, including character studies, story notes, cover sketches and a few surprises.

San Hannibal: The City of Love and Fear, priced at $14.99, will be available on June 10 in comic book stores and is currently available for order through, Barnes & Noble and local booksellers. To find a comic store near you, call 1-800-COMIC-BOOK or visit
