Image Comics Shoring Up "Hadrian's Wall" with Reprints


The sci-fi murder mystery fans can’t get enough of flies off shelves

Image Comics is pleased to announce that issue #2 of the genre-bending sci-fi noir series HADRIAN’S WALL by C.O.W.L. super-team Kyle Higgins, Alec Siegel, and Rod Reis will be rushed back to print in order to keep up with customer demand. It will be available on shelves the same day as forthcoming HADRIAN’S WALL #3, providing customers with the perfect jumping-on point to the hot new series.

When 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 #2, Simon must break the crew’s silence.

HADRIAN’S WALL #2, 2nd printing (Diamond Code SEP168284) and HADRIAN’S WALL #3 (Diamond Code SEP160729) will be available on Wednesday, November 16th, 2016. The final order cutoff for retailers is Monday, October 24th, 2016.

Select praise for HADRIAN’S WALL:

This is how you write a film noir in space. The slow drip of information, past dalliances between characters, substance abuse, a femme fatale who may or may not be involved in a death, and over all of it, a seemingly faceless and unstoppable force of colonization feels like an old Chandler novel set in L.A.” —AiPT!

This is one book that demands an immediate follow up, and if this first issue is any indication, the month-long wait between issues is going to be difficult.” —Newsarama

[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
