DYNAMITE Publishing Launches Crime Noir Line
with Garth Ennis’ RED TEAM!
You like Ed Brubaker & Sean Phillips’ CRIMINAL and Diggle & Jock’s LOSERS.
You watch HBO’s The WIRE and FX’s The SHIELD.
THE BOYS is over. You want more.
If you agree with any of the above statements, you want to read Garth Ennis & Craig Cermak’s RED TEAM.
Red Team is the story of a Major Crimes task force unit in the NYPD, four of New York’s finest- and smartest- who decide to murder a suspect. Very soon, the worst possible thing that could possibly happen… happens. And that’s just episode one.
Artist CRAIG CERMAK says, “Dark and moody are what I think some of my strong points are artistically, and that is what this series has. Interesting characters, a great premise, and hard situations.”
The seven issue series starts on February 6th. Want to read it? LET US KNOW or you’ll miss out!
Diamond Comics’ Solicitation for Issue #1:
Part one: The First-Timers. Eddie Mellinger, Trudy Giroux, Duke Wylie and George Winburn are Red Team: the NYPD’s elite anti-narcotics unit. They’ve taken down one drug lord after another with a careful blend of meticulous surveillance and applied violence, but their latest case has even them stumped. Their frustration leads them to take extreme measures- setting them on a path from which there can be no coming back. As they’re about to discover, doing the wrong thing can be very, very seductive.
From a Subscriber:
So I was reading Previews last night and was instantaneously compelled to write to you about plugging an up-coming series.
Very seldom do I get overly eager to read a new series about characters I’ve never been introduced to as cameos in other people’s books before. Even less do I get excited about totally brand new characters that no one has ever heard of. This is the exception to the rule. Grab it! – A. Botts
