STRINGERS #1 is on stands TODAY! by Justin Greenwood

Even writing this title line has me pinching myself- many comics have long periods of devlopment but this one really takes the cake. I think Marc started on this concept nearly 7 years ago and we probably started collaborating on it as far back as 2010, when we started wrapping up RESURRECTION at that time. So believe me when I say how excited and proud we are to have this book on shelves today. It was the first creator-owned book I got to build from the ground up and will remain one of my favorites.

BIG thanks to onipress for working with us and being so flexible as to make sure it saw the light of day, and to my longtime collaborator and pal Marc Guggenheim for his patience and support. This comic has been a passion project from the outset and time has only made me appreicate it that much more. Hope you guys enjoy it.

Paul and Nick are the guys who shoot the news. Filming car chases, fires, and shootouts in their busted-up rig, they put their (uninsured, unsalaried) lives on the line every night so that the good citizens of Los Angeles can get their daily update. But when a firefight between the LAPD and the MS-13 goes wrong, Nick and Paul find themselves on the run.

STRINGERS #3

Writer: Marc Guggenheim (marcguggenheim)

Artist: Justin Greenwood (justingreenwood)

Colors: Ryan Hill

Letters: Crank!

After barely escaping from Speziali unscathed (well, maybe some scathes) by tricking him into taking a blank tape, Nick and Paul drop off their actual footage at the news station with Michelle. During their late-night slurpee break, Paul breaks the news he’s being holding onto: he’s going to USC to get his degree and become a “legitimate journalist.” Nick is less than pleased, but it turns out that Speziali had the worst night… those cops came back, and Nick was right: they were definitely crooked. They put Speziali in the hospital searching for the tape, and now Nick, Paul, and Michelle are in danger.
