Image Comics Announces "The Black Monday Murders"
THE BLACK MONDAY MURDERS— A DARK MIX OF THE OCCULT AND INTRIGUE
Hickman and Coker launch new crypto-noir
Image Comics is pleased to announce the all-new, ongoing crypto-noir series THE BLACK MONDAY MURDERS by New York Times and Eisner Award winning writer Jonathan Hickman (EAST OF WEST) and Tomm Coker (Undying Love) will launch in in August.
THE BLACK MONDAY MURDERS is classic occultism where the various schools of magic are actually clandestine banking cartels who control all of society: a secret world where vampire Russian oligarchs, Black popes, enchanted American aristocrats, and hitmen from the International Monetary Fund work together to keep ALL OF US in our proper place.
“I’ve gotten to work on some pretty interesting books over the past few years,” said Hickman. “This is, by far, the most proud I’ve been. I can’t wait for people to read it.”
THE BLACK MONDAY MURDERS is a story about the power of dirty, filthy money… and exactly what kind of people you can buy with it.
THE BLACK MONDAY MURDERS #1 (Diamond Code JUN160575) will hit comic book stores on Wednesday, August 10th, 2016. The final order cutoff deadline for comic book retailers is Monday, July 18th, 2016.
