Writer Stephanie Phillips (Grim, Harley Quinn, We Only Kill Each Other) and artist Valeria Favoccia are adapting Mark Dawson’s popular Beatrix Rose character as a new digital first five-issue series on comiXology Originals entitled Beatrix Rose: Vigilante. For those comic book readers unaware of Beatrix Rose (like me), she is the star of a series of bestselling Kindle Direct Publishing novels that chart her espionage-filled adventures across the globe.
Author and creator, Mark Dawson, had this to say about the new adaption from novel to comic:
“I’ve been thrilled to see Beatrix brought to life in this fantastic adventure. She has gone into hiding in the Hong Kong underworld and there are a whole host of stories to be told about those missing years. This story, featuring a new character who really takes Beatrix to the limit, is one that I don’t think readers will be able to put down. I loved it.”
“It’s an honor to bring Mark Dawson’s Beatrix Rose to comic book form with artist Valeria Favoccia and colorist Ellie Wright. Beatrix is a complicated character with more layers than your typical secret agent. While we explore Beatrix’s tragic past and how she plans to spend her future, I also wanted to bring my own martial arts background to the fight choreography and work with Valeria and Ellie to create unique and dramatic fight sequences in every issue of the story.”
Debuting on Tuesday July 12th from Amazon’s comixology Originals, each issue will come with a stunning cover by Adriana Melo.
“As the most dangerous member in the British Intelligence Group 15, Beatrix Rose isn’t the kind of person you want to upset. When she’s ambushed and betrayed by her team, she’s driven underground and plans for revenge. Years later, she emerges as an assassin for hire in the Hong Kong underworld.
