Writer Alex de Campi (No Mercy, Grindhouse), artist Tony Parker (This Damned Band), and colorist Blond (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?) will, surprising no one, be releasing a trade paperback collection of their thriller Mayday, this May, from Image Comics.
Set in the 1970’s, Mayday deals heavily in the espionage of the Cold War, and follows agent Jack Hudson as he tries to complete his mission. With plenty of distractions, it seems.
Here’s an overview of the series:
April 1971: the CIA is handed the espionage coup of the decade when a KGB general defects with a list of all Soviet intelligence assets in Asia, including spies within the US Army in Vietnam. All Jack Hudson has to do is get the defector and his microfilm from Hong Kong to California…and keep Palm Springs’ overzealous FBI office from turning everything into a freakshow. All Codename: Felix has to do is kill the defector and get the microfilm back to the USSR, by any means possible. Easy, right? Now throw in a beautiful woman, a fast car, and a whole lot of drugs—and watch it all crumble.
The Mayday TPB (ISBN: 978-1-5343-0157-3, Diamond code: MAR170811) will arrive in comic book stores Wednesday, May 24th and in bookstores Tuesday, May 30th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, April 24th.
