Courtesy of Korean digital comic book publisher LINE Webtoons, the new digital comic book by Warren Ellis and Colleen Doran. Finality. Announced two years ago and now… here. The first three chapters. For free.
Acclaimed writer Ellis and artist Doran weave a crime drama about Felicity Rockall, the world’s greatest criminal investigator, and Amy Ash, the young DCIS special agent assigned to try and control the eccentric genius, as they deal with a frightening murder mystery that may prove to be Felicity’s final case.
Finality will immediately grab readers, throwing them into a complex murder mystery that regrettably brings out of retirement Felicity Rockwell, the world’s greatest criminal investigator. Tracked down from her intentional isolation by hot young White House intelligence agent Amy Ash, Rockwell is recruited to help solve a string of murders that seem insoluble without her help. But as always, the case appearances are not what they seem, launching Rockwell and Ash into the middle of a crime syndicate and a revenge plot aimed at killing Rockwell once and for all.
Finality is a heightened crime drama about Felicity Rockall, the world’s greatest criminal investigator, and Amy Ash, the young DCIS special agent assigned to try and control the eccentric genius as they deal with a frightening murder mystery that may prove to be Felicity’s final case. The series will launch in 2017.
Finality will follow Rockall, an eccentric recluse and fiercely intelligent woman, and Ash, a young agent reluctant to take the case, as they’re thrown into an appalling series of complex murders that seem to be linked to Felicity’s mysterious past. Finality will leave readers on the edge of their seats as they follow Rockall and Ash’s journey from beginning to end. Told from Ash’s perspective in the present as she tries to make sense of the events passed in a series of flashbacks, readers will be dying to know what comes next as the story navigates through suspenseful and thrilling unexpected plot twists.
“Finality” was also the name Ellis gave to his final Lazarus Churchyard story 17 years ago. Some folk state that Ellis and Doran’s first work together was the Vertigo graphic novel Orbiter, but preceding that by a couple of years was Super Idol for the website Artbomb. So this is a return to webcomics together for both of them. News on Stealth Tribes will have to wait for another decade…
