san hannibal 5 coverThe can’t-miss conclusion to San Hannibal, the comic book series that Dustin Cabeal of Comic Bastards calls “one of the year’s best,” is arriving in comic book stores everywhere on Dec. 17, and when it does, readers will finally learn not only the fate of missing photojournalist Savannah Loy, but also that of the city of San Hannibal, Calif. itself.

Throughout the course of San Hannibal’s five issues, writer/artist Dan Schkade and colorist/letterer Jesse Snavlin have put their protagonist, hard-luck private detective Ira Avery, through the ringer: He’s been shot at, beaten up, bombed, drugged and nearly buried alive in his search for Loy. And in the final issue of the “neon-noir” mini-series that Greg Burgas of Comics Should Be Good! declared “started strong and has only gotten stronger,” the truth behind her disappearance is finally revealed—and so is the true face of power in San Hannibal.

San Hannibal #5 will be available on Dec. 17 in comic book stores and via popgoestheicon.com for $2.99, as well as through digital platforms such as Comixology, DriveThruComics and ComicsPlus for just 99 cents. To find a comic store near you, call 1-800-COMIC-BOOK or visit comicshoplocator.com.
