This September, BOOM! is thrilled to bring the true stories of its hometown to life in Hit, a dark crime drama where clandestine groups of LAPD detectives moonlight as sanctioned killers known as “Hit Squads.”
Created and written by Bryce Carlson and drawn by hot newcomer Vanesa R. Del Rey, Hit will ship with covers by Ryan Sook, as well as a pulp-inspired incentive first issue cover by illustrator Erik M. Gist.
WHY I LOVE IT: I’m a sucker for classic film noir, crime comics, and pulp detective novels. I love the secret history of law enforcement in Los Angeles. Mostly, I love stories about good men making hard decisions in unforgiving circumstances.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Hit is a dark crime drama filled with murderers, rapists, and drug lords…and the men who will stop at nothing to bring them to justice. If you’re a fan of Criminal, Parker and Tumor, then Hit is the series for you.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Los Angeles. It’s 1955. It’s dark; it’s sexy. It’s dangerous. Everyone has an angle. And while infamous gangster Mickey Cohen rots in a prison cell, Los Angeles ignores the blackest parts of the city’s heart…where clandestine groups of LAPD detectives moonlight as sanctioned hitmen knows as “Hit Squads.”
Hit #1 will arrive in stores on September 4th and carries a retail price of $3.99 under Diamond order code JUL130912.
