Gerry Duggan and John McCrea only have “Dead Eyes” for Image Comics
A killer creative team and a great story idea? Don’t mind if we do. We’ve got both with the upcoming series Dead Eyes from Image Comics, which teams up Gerry Duggan and John McCrea for a story about a former hood who has to go “back to that life” to save his wife.
And yet even she isn’t happy about it.
It’s a great concept, and from his work on Hitman, you just know that McCrea will be able to make even the toughest of characters sympathetic.
While also depicting them in acts of brutal violence. Don’t forget the violence.
Check out the details below.
DEADPOOL WRITER GERRY DUGGAN TEAMS WITH HITMAN CO-CREATOR & ARTIST JOHN MCCREA FOR VIGILANTE SERIES DEAD EYES
You can’t keep a good comic down
PORTLAND, Ore. 07/19/2019 — Artist John McCrea (Mythic, Hitman) and writer Gerry Duggan (Analog, Deadpool) team up to bring readers action, comedy, and drama in the forthcoming series Dead Eyes. This ongoing series will launch from Image Comics with an oversized first issue this October.
"We're very happy to introduce you to the violent, funny, and sad world without justice in Dead Eyes,” said Duggan. “A former stick-up man must return to his life of crime when the pressures of living in a Kleptocracy push him to the breaking point. This is McCrea & Spicer's very best work and we're thrilled to punch Dead Eyes into your face beginning this October.”
McCrea said only: “I'm too busy drawing ball-busting sh*t to give you a quote.”
Set in the 1990s, “Dead Eyes” was a prolific stick-up man and hoodlum in Boston until he took down one last big score and disappeared. Nobody ever discovered the truth. He retired to be with the love of his life, but now he’s back in the mask to save her. No one—not his wife, the mafia, or the cops—is happy that he’s out of retirement.
Dead Eyes #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on October 2.
