I really have no comment on this comic, but in reading the press release I noticed that Image is officially in Portland... which feels weird. Like 70% of my emails now come from Portland it feels like. Oh and I will likely read this series... at least the first issue. I'm not big on Simone's writing as she's very hit or miss with me.
Image Comics is thrilled to announce CROSSWIND, the brand-new ongoing thriller from fan-favorites Gail Simone (Red Sonja, Secret Six) and Cat Staggs (Wonder Woman ‘77, Smallville Season 11), arriving in stores this June.
A slick and ruthless Chicago hitman.
A smart but downtrodden Seattle housewife.
When an inexplicable event strikes these two random strangers, their bodies, souls, and lives are switched—to potentially deadly effect.
“This is possibly the most thrilling project of my career, and Cat Staggs brought her best stomping boots to the game; she's absolutely killing it,” said Simone. “There's nothing else quite like it. It smells of gunpowder, nitro, and one-hour hotel rooms. It's wrong and messed up, and we hope people love it as much as we do.”
“I am thrilled to be working with the incomparable Gail Simone in a genre that is close to my heart,” said Staggs. “The challenge of bringing these characters to life and developing their world has made this project something I’m proud of. Readers are in for a wild ride.”
CROSSWIND #1 (Diamond code: APR170674) hits comic book stores Wednesday, June 21st. Final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, May 29th.
