Pope Hats #4 Announced for June

AdHouse Books has announced that the next issue of Ethan Rilly’s Pope Hats will be available in June. It’s a short story collection, which means we have to wait longer to find out what’s going on with Frances and Vickie, from the two previous issues, but it’s in full color. And honestly, anything Rilly draws, I’ll read. Issue #4 can currently be ordered with Diamond code APR15 0977, and there is a PDF preview available at that link.
