Hard Case Crime & Titan Comics Announce Max Allan Collins’ Quarry’s War and Cynthia Von Buhler’s Minky Woodcock
Announced at San Diego Comic-Con today, Titan Comics and Hard Case Crime revealed the next titles from their Hard Case Crime line of comics – Minky Woodcock: The Girl Who Handcuffed Houdini and Quarry’s War!
Created by acclaimed artist, author, director, and playwright Cynthia Von Buhler (Speakeasy Dollhouse, Evelyn Evelyn, The Countess & Her Cats, Emily and the Strangers), Minky Woodcock: The Girl Who Handcuffed Houdini has already garnered praise from legendary author Neil Gaiman (Sandman) who said: “I was seduced by Cynthia Von Buhler’s artwork. She is a wonder.”
Unappreciated at her father’s detective agency, the fabulous rabbit-loving Minky Woodcock straps on her gumshoes in order to uncover a magical mystery involving the world-famous escape artist, Harry Houdini!
Featuring covers by artist Robert McGinnis – the famous creator of movie posters for classic films such as James Bond and Breakfast at Tiffany’s and acclaimed comics legend David Mack (Kabuki), the first issue arrives in stores November 8, 2017.
This November 29, acclaimed comic writer/novelist Max Allan Collins’ (Road to Perdition, Batman, Action Comics Weekly) smash hit QUARRY series makes the leap to comics for the first time ever in an all-new series titled “Quarry’s War,” penned by Collins, whose other work includes Batman, Dick Tracy, Ms. Tree, and the groundbreaking graphic novel Road to Perdition, which inspired the Academy Award-winning film starring Tom Hanks and Paul Newman. Quarry’s War is illustrated by artist Szymon Kudranski (Batman: Streets of Gotham, Spider-Man, Spawn).
Recently returned from the horrors of the Vietnam War, former U.S. Marine sniper Quarry has found a new vocation as a professional assassin. But when his latest contract turns out to be an old acquaintance from his military days, the fresh-faced hit-man finds himself battling against his own conscience as secrets from the past begin to reveal themselves.
Minky Woodcock: The Girl Who Handcuffed Houdini #1 (on-sale November 8, 2017) and Quarry’s War (on-sale November 29, 2017) is available to order from the upcoming September PREVIEWS catalog.
