Media Release — In December, BOOM! Studios will debut their newest original series, DECEIVERS, written by Steven Grant (2 GUNS, 3 GUNS) and illustrated by newcomer Jose Holder (INCORRUPTIBLE). It will ship with a main cover by Stephane Roux (Birds of Prey, GRACE RANDOLPH’S SUPURBIA). A Steven Grant signed incentive cover will also be available for retailers to order.
WHY WE LOVE IT: Everybody loves a good underdog story, and we’re no exception. Make that double for your classic Robin Hood-style “steal from the rich, give to the poor” yarns, and when you couple that with Steven Grant’s (2 GUNS) crackling dialogue and beautiful artwork from Jose Holder? We couldn’t resist!
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: DECEIVERS is a globetrotting espionage action/comedy populated by charming, clever characters and thrilling sleight of hand, perfect for fans of films like “Catch Me If You Can” and the “Ocean’s 11” series.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Lincoln McCord and Prince Adony Zaruka are two American con men living abroad in Europe, posing as an oil magnate and the descendant of long-lost royalty in order to live the high life by leeching off the European elite. But when an international thief begins wreaking havoc on their marks, the deceivers are enlisted by a rogue CIA agent to help entrap him.
DECEIVERS #1 will arrive in stores in late December and carries a retail price of $3.99 under Diamond order code OCT13 0993. It’s also available for order directly from boom-studios.com.
