September Sees Launch Of Two Hit Books, One From Boom, One From Zenescope

In recent weeks we have seen Dark Horse and Image publish Dream Thief and Dream Merchant on the same day.

We have seen Uncanny X-Men, Uncanny X-Force and Uncanny Avengers sharing shelf space with Uncanny Skullkickers, Uncanny and The Uncanny.

There are about six titles from different publishers called Oz.

And in September, Boom and Zenes cope are launching two comics, Hit and Hit List.

See it you can work out which is which from the covers alone…

HIT by Bryce Carlson and Vanesa Del Rey

“JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE PROVEN GUILTY…DOESN’T MEAN YOU’RE INNOCENT.” WHY WE LOVE IT: We’re suckers for classic film noir, crime comics, and pulp detective novels. We love the secret history of law enforcement in our hometown, Los Angeles. Mostly, we love stories about good men making hard decisions in unforgiving circumstances. WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: HIT is a dark crime drama filled with murderers, rapists, and drug lords…and the men who will stop at nothing to bring them to justice. If you’re a fan of CRIMINAL, PARKER, and TUMOR, then HIT is the series for you. WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Los Angeles. It’s 1955. It’s dark; it’s sexy. It’s dangerous. Everyone has an angle. And while infamous gangster Mickey Cohen rots in a prison cell, Los Angeles ignores the blackest parts of the city’s heart…where clandestine groups of LAPD detectives moonlight as sanctioned hitmen knows as “Hit Squads.”

HIT LIST by Ralph Tedesco. Artist yet to be announced.

Are we ever truly safe from evil? What if you had the means to play God, choosing who lives and dies?
Threats exist all around us and the lives of so many have been ruined by others evil deeds. Now one man will seek vengeance for all those who share in his pain.
When a group of professional killers is brought together in order to take out a crew of gangsters, what starts as a seemingly good plan spirals into something more threatening and deadly than anyone saw coming.
