Image Comics has announced a new “high energy action series” from Doug Wagner, Nic Rummel, and Charlie Kirchoff arriving in August, The Hard Place.
Ex-con AJ Gurney, a well-known “wheelman” in Detroit has decided it’s time to go straight. When he returns home to work in his father’s garage, he disappear into anonymity, but during a visit to a bank, two robbers recognize him and force him into service. Taking a female hostage to assure his compliance, they don’t realize that she’s the daughter for a Russian crime lord. Pursued by police and also by the Russian mob, AJ finds himself if a “very hard place”.
Doug Wagner says:
This book is crazy. If you’re into high-octane car chases, badass Russian mobsters, and nonstop chaos, THE HARD PLACE delivers all that in spades. THE HARD PLACE is a car wreck disguised as a comic book. Readers won’t want to miss a single second of it.
The Hard Place #1 Cover A by Stelfreeze (Diamond Code JUN170668), Cover B by Rummel (Diamond Code JUN170669), and Cover C by Stelfreeze (Diamond Code JUN170670) will launch on Wednesday, August 23rd. The final order cutoff deadline is Monday, July 31st.
