To go with Dynamite’s new Fan Gear Pack Kickstarter, the publisher has sent us two free comics involved in the project. The Fan Gear Pack features graphic novels, prints, t-shirts for Vampirella, Control, and Grand Passion. The idea is to not only bring out new merchandise based on these properties, but to introduce them to new readers. The Dynamite Fan Gear Kickstarter campaign is currently live, and you can find it right here.
Today’s free comic is the first issue of the crime thriller / love story of Grand Passion by James Robinson and Tom Feister.
One of the comic industry’s finest — James Robinson (Squadron Supreme, Scarlet Witch, Starman) — delivers the surprising, funny, violent, and sexy tale of romance that comics have been missing! Doc’s a cop. Mabel’s a crook. They’re two wayward souls, fated to fall in love at first sight… even as Mabel swears to kill Doc if it’s the last thing she does. It’s Harlequin Romance meets Hard-Boiled Crime, as only James Robinson could deliver!
Grand Passion was the first of a twelve-part series that told the a love story within the pages of a classic crime tale from Robinson, one of comics’ most critically acclaimed writers.
