New Noir Series, ‘Second Chances,’ From Image Comics, Announced

by Olly MacNamee

Image Comics announce a new series by writer Ricky Mammone and artist Max Bertolini, Second Chances. An “action-packed noir is best described as Sin City by way of Better Call Saul”:

“Second Chances Hotline — call now and get a new identity! All you need is some cash, a proper referral, and a very good reason to start over. When Leblanc, the man behind the hotline, is approached by a shady figure from his past, he’s forced to accept a new client who doesn’t meet any of the requirements—a client with chemically induced amnesia in desperate need of protection.”

Mammone fleshes it out more:

“Second Chances is a bizarre noir about how we can let mistakes define us.I think nowadays we forget that it’s very human to mess things up. With this series, we want to ask the questions what’s worth forgiving and most importantly, can we give ourselves a second chance?”

Bertolini added:

“Second Chances involved me like a vivid, dark and psychedelic dream. The deeper I went into the pages, the more the pages seemed to draw themselves, as if endowed with a powerful will of their own. It is like love, violence, perdition and rebirth shackled and injected into every page, every frame.”

Second Chances #1 will be available on Wednesday, August 18th.
