Bullseye! Action-Comedy Comic Assassin Nation #1 Gets Second Printing
by Olly MacNamee
Assassin Nation #1 is another Image/Skybound comic book being rushed back for a second printing after the first issue sold out. Written by two-time Eisner Award winner Erica Henderson (The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Jughead) and Eisner-nominated writer Kyle Starks (Rick and Morty, Sexcastle) here’s a reminder of what you’ve missed:
Assassin Nation #1 introduces readers to the World’s (Former) Greatest Hitman—who has a hit out on him. What to do? Why, hire the 20 best assassins in the world to be his bodyguards, of course. These mean-as-hell hired guns and murderers will have to work together to keep the new crime boss safe, figure out who’s trying to off him, and also… survive.
So, like the action-comedy The Hitman’s Bodyguard, but times by twenty! Why not take another look at the preview below and then decide if it’s a comic you’re missing from your life.
Assassin Nation #1, second printing will be available on Wednesday, April 17. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, March 25th.
