I turned three years old in 1975. Joe Casey might have been a little older. Now he and Ian MacEwan are revisiting that era with MCMLXXV launching this September from Image Comics.
“This series is all about creating brand new iconography,” said Casey. “It’s about creating a new kind of folk hero that speaks to where we all are right now. Oh yeah… it’s also about smashing monsters into the pavement with an enchanted tire iron.”
In MCMLXXV, readers meet Pamela Evans. Much more than a typical Manhattan cab driver, she also happens to be a badass monster-fighter. Welcome to the year of her greatest adventure.
MacEwan added: “This is a book about big action in a mythic, haunted New York. It’s about dim street lights that can’t fight off the shadows, and who has to step in its place to hold back the tide of chaos.”
MCMLXXV #1 (Diamond Code JUL180110) hits stores on Wednesday, September 12th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, August 20th.
