Image have announced this week that new ongoing thriller Crosswind, written by Gail Simone and drawn by Cat Staggs (Wonder Woman ‘77, Smallville Season 11), will arrive in June.
The series features, “a slick and ruthless Chicago hitman” and “a smart but downtrodden Seattle housewife”, who are struck by an “inexplicable event” that swaps their “bodies, souls, and lives”. And leaves them in the line of fire.
Gail Simone says:
This is possibly the most thrilling project of my career, and Cat Staggs brought her best stomping boots to the game; she’s absolutely killing it. There’s nothing else quite like it. It smells of gunpowder, nitro, and one-hour hotel rooms. It’s wrong and messed up, and we hope people love it as much as we do.
Cat Staggs adds:
I am thrilled to be working with the incomparable Gail Simone in a genre that is close to my heart. The challenge of bringing these characters to life and developing their world has made this project something I’m proud of. Readers are in for a wild ride.
Crosswind#1 (Diamond code: APR170674) hits comic book stores Wednesday, June 21st. Final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, May 29th.
