The Eisner-nominated series by acclaimed writer Tom King and artist Greg Smallwood, The Human Target, resumes this Fall as Christopher Chance dives deeper into the mystery behind his poisoning, and time is running out!

King and Smallwood turn up the heat for Chance in more ways than one, beginning with Book Seven, in comic book stores and participating digital retailers on Tuesday, September 27. After discovering clues, the death of a Green Lantern and a torrid romance with Tora Olafsdottir, a.k.a. Ice, DC’s top bodyguard may meet his match when Beatriz da Costa, otherwise known as Fire, steps into his life. Only time will tell what secrets this flaming femme fatale might hold, and just how badly The Human Target might get burned.

"If you liked the first half of Human Target, you ain't seen nothing yet,” said King. “As we enter the second half of the series and come closer to Chance's death, the stakes get higher, the violence gets bloodier, the twists get bigger, and the comic, impossibly, gets even prettier. You do not want to miss this one." 

Book Seven of The Human Target features a main cover by artist Smallwood, with a main variant cover by Stanley “Artgerm” Lau, plus a 1 in 25 ratio variant cover by Francesco Mattina. Fans can check with their local comic book store of availability and pre-ordering details. The issue weighs in at 40 pages at a price of $4.99.

Fans that have missed out of the first half of the series can catch up on all the action and intrigue on Tuesday, September 13, with the first six issues of The Human Target are available as a hardcover collected edition. And there’s more behind the scenes to this puzzle to check out on August 23, when the Tales of The Human Target one-shot arrives in comic book stores and digitally.
