One Year Later, Cullen Bunn, Brian Quinn, and Walt Flanagan’s ‘Metro’ Heads to Kickstarter

Posted by June 1, 2018 Comment

Nearly one year after debuting at San Diego Comic-Con, Metro, the “very dark” urban fantasy series from Brian Quinn (Impractical JokersTell ‘Em Steve-Dave), Walt Flanagan (Comic Book MenTell ‘Em Steve-DaveBatman: The Widening Gyre), and Cullen Bunn (The Sixth GunnRegressionDeadpool Kills the Marvel UniverseX-Men: Blue) is finally heading to Kickstarter.

As promised in July of 2017, the team began showing off previews of the book at last year’s SDCC, and have continued to do so at pretty much every convention, big and small, since then. But now, as revealed on Twitter, the comic will finally be released to the general public… provided they back it on Kickstarter.

A mid-June launch for the Kickstarter is well timed, early enough to avoid being completely overshadowed by the flood of San Diego Comic-Con News in July, but close enough to benefit from promotion at the convention. If you’ve been waiting for 11 months to finally get your hands on this comic, it looks like your wait is… almost… over. Hang in there!

More about Metro:

Meet Hunter Murphy.

Yesterday, he died of a drug overdose in a filthy New York City back-alley. Today, he awoke in the City Morgue with no real memory of who he is or how he got there. He only knows his name thanks to the toe tag he’s wearing.

Slipping out into the night, Hunter wanders the city, clad in clothing he gathered from a dumpster. He may not know anything about himself, but he instinctively knows every corner of the teeming metropolis.
And the city seems to know him.

Traffic flow seems to naturally break when he wants to cross the street. No door is locked to him, no metal gate sealed shut. When he runs into trouble (which happens quite a bit) the city seems to help him in some way.

But there are others who know him, too, or at least they think they do.

The Wide-Eyed Three is a group of conspiracy theory nutjobs who have been exiled from society—for good reason. When they learn of Hunter’s miraculous return from the dead, they think they’ve found their ticket to redemption. And if they have to kill Hunter again and again to prove their wild theories, that’s what they’ll do!

On the other hand, retired police detective Ransom Keck doesn’t care about Hunter’s supernatural condition. He only cares that the young man has some unrevealed connection to the murder of his wife and kids. He’ll drag the confused young man through a past better left untouched until Hunter can give him the answers he needs to lay his family to rest.

Hunter’s not a bad guy, but he has a secret.

And that secret is a killer.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
