Matt Kindt and Wilfredo Torres are launching a new comic book series, BANG! from Dark Horse Comics in February. But they would like you to get to know their characters first. Which is why, every Monday, we’ll get to know one of the characters in a fashion that will make it very clear who they are. Last week we got to meet a misogynist and a psychopath… will we have any more luck this time?
A barefoot, divorced addict? Well as long as he’s bad-ass and lonely, that makes it all better. With colourist Nayoung Kim and letterer Nate Piekos, BANG! #1 will be launching on the 19th February.
BANG! #1 (OF 5)
(W) Matt Kindt (A/CA) Wilfredo Torres
A best-of-the-best secret agent with memories he couldn’t possibly possess, a mystery writer in her 60s who spends her retirement solving crimes, a man of action with mysterious drugs that keep him ahead of a constant string of targeted disasters, a seemingly omnipotent terrorist organization that might be behind it all…
And they’re all connected to one man: a science-fiction author with more information than seems possible, whose books may hold the key to either saving reality or destroying it.
A mind-bending story that ties in with past Kindt works (Revolver).
Action, mystery, and altered reality! In Shops: Feb 19, 2020 SRP: $3.99
