Announced at last weekend's Image Expo, Joe Casey brings his and artist Steve Parkhouse's dark story to Image in 2012 with a larger, hardcover edition of "The Milkman Murders."

These days, Joe Casey is best known for his often off-kilter and critically acclaimed work published through Image Comics, from "Godland" and "Butcher Baker, The Righteous Maker," to "Doc Bizarre, M.D." and Todd McFarlane's "Haunt." As recently as the mid 2000s, however, he was spending much of his time working on DC Comics and Marvel books like "Adventures of Superman," "Wildcats 3.0" and "Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes." During this time, Casey wrote a creator-owned comic titled "The Milkman Murders," illustrated by artist Steve Parkhouse ("2000 AD," "Doctor Who Magazine") and published through Dark Horse.


"Milkman Murders" is a dark, dark comic that looks at everyday life in the suburbs and the evils that lurk within supposedly normal people. The book focuses on Barbara, a housewife, how she deals with the realization that her husband, son and daughter are much worse people than she ever knew. Thanks to a new deal between Man of Action Studios -- the quartet of creators Casey belongs to that includes Joe Kelly, Duncan Rouleau and Steven T. Seagle best known for creating the animated series "Ben 10" -- and Image Comics, the world will get a chance to explore "Milkman" once again, this time in a hardcover edition. CBR News spoke to Casey about the new edition, announced at last weekend's Image Expo, what it was like collaborating with Parkhouse, and how the new format services the story.

Hell, no.If anything, I'm more twisted than ever!

The new printing of Joe Casey and Steve Parkhouse's "The Milkman Murders" debuts towards the end of 2012 from Image Comics.
