Dark Horse has sent over this nine-page preview from Troublemaker Book 2 ($17.99 for 112 color pages), due out in early November. This volume concludes the story begun in Troublemaker Book 1, which debuted last month with a 100,000-copy print run, due to its co-author, bestselling writer Janet Evanovich. This two-volume story is the third in her Barnaby series, begun as novels. Both books are drawn by the talented Joelle Jones, and here’s the solicitation copy:
Barnaby, Hooker, Rosa, Felicia, and Beans the St. Bernard set sail to the Florida Keys in order to find the wooden body of Baron Samedi that matches their recently acquired (and stolen) wooden hand. But in the world of Petro Voodoo a hand for a hand and a Baron for a boat is fair play. When the Happy Hooker disappears from its mooring in the Keys, Barnaby and Hooker have to find a way back to Miami with the stolen body of Baron Samedi. Ransom notes for the Happy Hooker, a sack of snakes, and a ticked-off chicken leave only one place safe enough to hide a body . . . Hooker’s mom’s house — a situation that makes the sack of snakes look like chump change.
