I'm not going to lie to you, folks: You might not have seen it much here at ComicsAlliance, but I've been known to employ some pretty colorful language every once in a while. I can cuss with the best of 'em at the slightest bit of frustration, and if you don't believe me, you should see me try to play a classic NES game. But that said, even I'm a little shocked by the bad word barrage that hits the page in the final issue of Eric Kripke and John HigginsJacked.

Then again, I've never faced something quite as frustrating as accidentally getting myself hooked on a drug that gives you superpowers, nor ticked off a drug lord who is now holding my family hostage unless I can get him an endless supply of super-pills. With problems like that, it's pretty easy to see why Josh Jaffe would go for something a little harder than "Gosh darn!" --- and you can get a sample of it in a preview below! (But we've had to cover up those naughty swears.)



Whew, think I got 'em all. If you want to see these pages without the black bars, though, you'll have to check it out when it hits stands next week.

And here's the official solicitation:
