When an unassuming man stumbles upon a dark-web contract assassin’s vicious plot to kill an innocent target, he turns himself into one. The Professional meets Road to Perdition in this story of a family’s unlikely guardian being hunted by rich and powerful men who are used to getting away with everything.
Join New York Times bestselling writer RICK REMENDER (DEADLY CLASS, BLACK SCIENCE) and ANDRÉ ARAÚJO (GENERATION GONE, Man Plus) for a uniquely atmospheric murder mystery with sudden bouts of brutal violence.
I am thoroughly intrigued with this story, as Rick Remender gives us very little in the way of character dialogue. Instead he lets the story speak for itself. And it speaks volumes! I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book but by the conclusion I was literally left speechless. Wow. This is going to be another fantastic series from Image and I am here for it.
The artwork from Andre Araujo is crisp and detailed. And I found myself taking the time to examine each panel in great detail. Araujo really captures the mundane feel to Sonny’s life and you can see what he is trying to achieve with this. And let’s not forget, when you have a heavyweight colourist like Chris O’Halloran to add in to the mix you know that you are in for something special.
As first issues go, this book starts quiet and unassuming like the lead character. I found myself engrossed by the book, quietly sitting on edge not knowing what to expect from page to page. This is setting up to be a intriguing series and I am really looking forward to what happens next. Looks like Image could have another hit on their hands!
