Final Order Cut-off for STRINGERS #2 from onipress is coming up on Monday, so just a reminder to let your local comic shop know you want a copy! The response to issue #1 have been overwhelming, and we can’t thank you guys enough for all the great feedback we’ve been getting on our book.
From the solicit:
Writer: Marc Guggenheim (marcguggenheim)
Artist: Justin Greenwood (justingreenwood)
Colors: Ryan Hill
DIAMOND CODE: JUL151489
Nick and Paul hastily flee a shootout, leaving with their footage and a mysterious USB drive taken off a gang member. They quickly get pulled over by the cops, and Nick suspects something wrong is happening… why are the cops interested in them now, when they’ve been at countless shootouts before? Paul disagrees, but Nick is the one behind the wheel, which means that a high-speed chase through LAX is going to happen whether Paul likes it or not. But dodging the police doesn’t mean they’re out of danger… not when they’ve also royally ticked off a rival stringer.
What people are saying:
“Marks a promising debut, and one that doesn’t read like any Guggenheim comic before it.” - IGN “The art by Justin Greenwood and Ryan Hill is beautiful and speaks to Los Angeles better than I have seen in a while.” - Graphic Policy “The book is a great example of what can be done with comics outside of the traditional tights and powers tropes.” - Comic Crusaders
And as if that’s not enough, make sure you check out this killer variant cover by Brahm Revel (elrevel) below. Love the energy he packed into this composition!
With her friend Mercury still in a coma, Dex is taking things personally – perhaps too personally. As the investigation stalls, Dex begins to veer out of control, and there’s no telling who might get hurt in her wake.
STUMPTOWN returns as an ongoing book in September and it’s now featured in the July issue of PREVIEWS from onipress! Couldn’t be more excited to be working on this book and looking forward to getting it into your collective hands.
Greg Rucka’s fan favorite private eye is back in a new ONGOING series illustrated by Justin Greenwood (Image Comics’ THE FUSE)! Things never go according to plan for Dex Parios–it doesn’t matter whether it’s work or play. When a weekend of soccer fun (both playing and watching!) turns ugly, it’s up to Dex to get to the bottom of the violence before a heated rivalry transforms into an all out war!
