GAIL SIMONE AND CAT STAGGS LAUNCH
ALL-NEW SERIES CROSSWIND THIS JUNE
Goodfellas meets Freaky Friday in this mind-bending new ongoing series
â€œGreat, kinetic, mind-warping work.â€
â€”Ian Rankin, bestselling author of the Inspector Rebus novels
PORTLAND, OR, 03/21/2017 â€” Image Comics is thrilled to announce CROSSWIND, the brand-new ongoing thriller from fan-favorites Gail Simone (Red Sonja, Secret Six) and Cat Staggs (Wonder Woman â€˜77, Smallville Season 11), arriving in stores this June.
A slick and ruthless Chicago hitman.
A smart but downtrodden Seattle housewife.
When an inexplicable event strikes these two random strangers, their bodies, souls, and lives are switchedâ€”to potentially deadly effect.
â€œThis is possibly the most thrilling project of my career, and Cat Staggs brought her best stomping boots to the game; she’s absolutely killing it,â€ said Simone. â€œThere’s nothing else quite like it. It smells of gunpowder, nitro, and one-hour hotel rooms. It’s wrong and messed up, and we hope people love it as much as we do.â€
â€œI am thrilled to be working with the incomparable Gail Simone in a genre that is close to my heart,â€ said Staggs. â€œThe challenge of bringing these characters to life and developing their world has made this project something Iâ€™m proud of. Readers are in for a wild ride.â€
CROSSWIND #1 (Diamond code: APR170674) hits comic book stores Wednesday, June 21st. Final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, May 29th.
Early praise for CROSSWIND:
â€œCROSSWIND will sneak up on you from behind and knock you sideways. Gail Simone is at her absolute sharpest, and Cat Staggsâ€™s art is daring and sexy. Freakinâ€™ impressive is what it isâ€¦!â€ â€”Cully Hamner (RED, The Question)
â€œCat Staggs’s art will grab you by the throat and kick you in the teeth. This is one creepy ride.â€ â€”Joe Harris (ROCKSTARS, X-Files)
â€œFreaky Fridayâ€”yes! But dark and twisted and such great art and page composition. And glints of humour. This is great, kinetic, mind-warping work. Art reminded me of Chaykinâ€™s The Shadow meets Bill Sienkiewicz. I love this.â€ â€”Ian Rankin (Inspector Rebus novels)
