Catch up with all of the assassins as Erica Henderson and Kyle Starks' "Assassin Nation" #1 goes back for a second printing from Image
While I’m pretty sure (downright positive) I say this in every one of these posts, I like repeating: it’s great to see comics go back for multiple printings. That’s the case with Image Comics’ Assassin Nation #1, a series with one of the best concepts I’ve seen in a while. I’ve yet to read the first issue, but the idea of the world’s greatest hitman hiring all of the assassins to serve as his bodyguards is just amazing, and likely why fans picked up the comic in droves. Check out the details below, along with a video showcasing series creators Erica Henderson, Kyle Starks, and Deron Bennett.
ERICA HENDERSON & KYLE STARKS HIT THEIR MARK WITH ASSASSIN NATION
The hot new series from Image/Skybound Entertainment is being rushed back to print to keep up with demand
PORTLAND, OR, 03/21/2019 — Two-time Eisner Award winner Erica Henderson (The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Jughead) and Eisner-nominated writer Kyle Starks (Rick and Morty, Sexcastle) hit their mark with the launch of Assassin Nation last week and delivered fans a side-splitting, mega-violent action-comedy. In order to keep up with the growing customer demand, Image/Skybound Entertainment's Assassin Nation #1 is already slated to go back to print.
Assassin Nation #1 introduces readers to the World’s (Former) Greatest Hitman—who has a hit out on him. What to do? Why, hire the 20 best assassins in the world to be his bodyguards, of course. These mean-as-hell hired guns and murderers will have to work together to keep the new crime boss safe, figure out who’s trying to off him, and also… survive.
With the same laugh-until-you-cry spirit of action-comedies like Hot Fuzz, Tropic Thunder, and Deadpool, Assassin Nation is the bombastic, hilarious, murder-fest readers have been waiting for.
Assassin Nation #1 second printing will hit comic shops April 17.
