Image Comics: ‘Hadrian’s Wall’ – A Murder Mystery Out of This World (10/19)

Image Comics is pleased to announce that Kyle Higgins, Alec Siegel, and Rod Reis, the creators behind the bestselling C.O.W.L. series, have launched another hit series in HADRIAN’S WALL. Issue #1 is being sent back to print in order to keep up with increased customer demand.

unnamed-23When an astronaut on HADRIAN’S WALL is murdered, pill-popping detective Simon Moore is dispatched to investigate the ship’s crew… including his own ex-wife. But if Simon’s not careful, what he finds could make the interstellar Cold War go red hot.

In HADRIAN’S WALL, readers are invited to enjoy a gripping, locked room murder mystery where the secrets of everyone involved are as dark as the space that surrounds them.

HADRIAN’S WALL #1, 2nd printing (Diamond Code AUG168738) and HADRIAN’S WALL #2 (Diamond Code AUG160631) will be available on Wednesday, October 19th. The final order cutoff for retailers is Monday, September 26th.

Select praise for HADRIAN’S WALL:

“[Rod Reis is] an expert storyteller, deftly unfolding this murder mystery with skill and precision. Troy Peteri’s lettering is on point, too, which helps in a talking-head sort of story like this. The panels never feel overburdened by the text. All in all, Hadrian’s Wall #1 is a finely crafted introduction… Look, murder in space with a noir feel? What else do you need from a comic book, right? Especially when it’s done this damn well.” —Nerdist

A love letter to Blade Runner, Outland and Aliens.” —IGN

A visual epic unlike anything in recent memory.” —Comics Beat

Loved it. Like a killer not-yet-made Fincher movie.” —Charles Soule

A clever riff on the genre, especially for noir fans looking for something different.” —UPROXX

Reis’ gorgeous sequential work falls on the same spectrum as Phil Noto, Fiona Staples and Nic Klein, lending a sense of pulpy atmosphere to Higgins & Siegel’s script.” —Paste Magazine

An addictive combination of relentless plotting and dreamy Blade Runner style.” —Hope Larson
