BOOM! Studios today announced the return of the Eisner Award-nominated series The Killer by French artist Luc Jacamon and writer Matz. The brand new six-issue series Affairs of the State, bringing readers into the Killer’s high-stakes world of espionage and contract killing before the upcoming Netflix film directed by David Fincher.
‘Caught and put to work as an on-call assassin for the French government, Killer has to adjust to working with a handler, a partner, and living life as a civilian. An underhanded target, a City Hall employee, leads Killer and his partner, Nicolas, toward a sinister web of city-wide corruption. But while Nicolas assures Killer that it’s all for the greater good, will Killer ever be able to get back to his nihilistic lifestyle, free from debt and government associations?’
Featuring main cover art by series artist Jacamon, and variant covers by Jonboy Meyers, Francesco Francavilla, Reiko Murakami, and Junggeun Yoon, The Killer: Affairs Of The State #1 hits the spinner racks in February 2022.
