EXCLUSIVE First Look: Troy Nixey returns to ‘Trout’ at Dark Horse Comics

Magic and Mystery Abound in “Trout: The Hollowest Knock”.

Troy Nixey’s mind is quite a wonderment. It’s filled with creative ideas as he related to me in an interview about his last Dark Horse series Vinegar Teeth. Troy Nixey’s fan-favorite series Trout is getting a new collected edition this spring and now there’s even more news to get fans excited.

Today AiPT! has the exclusive cover art for Nixey and Dave Stewart’s upcoming sequel Trout: The Hollowest Knock. It’s the next chapter in the Trout story. According to Dark Horse the book synopsis reads:

Trout: The Hollowest Knock picks up when Giuseppe and Trout are run out of Upton. Sick and distraught the two have no other option but to travel across the ocean to Giuseppe’s childhood village. Trout is lost along the way and Giuseppe is forced to deal with his brother’s meddling in order to find the mysterious little boy he’s sworn to protect. Can Giuseppe find him before Trout meets his fate at the hands of the god of the sea! And who is the shadowy figure trapped in a giant shark egg who is struggling to keep Trout alive?! One thing’s for certain, for better or worse, Trout will never be the same again!
