Media Release — Debuting in print for the first time, High Crimes, a murder mystery written by Dead Letters scribe Christopher Sebela, is the premiere graphic novel illustrated by rising star Ibrahim Moustafa!
Dark Horse will publish a stunning hardcover that collects all twelve issues of the critically acclaimed, multiple Eisner Award–nominated, and Stumptown Comics Art Award–winning Monkeybrain digital comic by Sebela (Captain Marvel, Alien vs. Predator) and Moustafa (The Pound: Ghouls Night Out). New York Times best-selling author Chelsea Cain calls High Crimes “the perfect thriller.” And Matt Fraction, the Eisner Award–winning writer of Sex Criminals, says, “Instead of just yelling at people to read High Crimes, now I can throw it at them at the same time.”
Disgraced Olympic snowboarder Zan Jensen has relocated to Kathmandu as a climbing guide, while running a sideline business as a high-altitude grave robber. When a body is found at the summit of Everest with a treasure of state secrets under its skin, Zan finds herself in the crosshairs of a government hit squad bent on bringing the body home. As she races to the roof of the world, Zan will navigate bullets and avalanches to find salvation in the deadliest place on earth.
The High Crimes hardcover goes on sale July 8, 2015! Preorder your copy today!
Praise for High Crimes:
“It’s a high concept executed with precision, delivering real-world intrigue.”—The Onion’s A.V. Club
“Every once in a while you come across a comic that comes out of nowhere. That just reaches up and says, ‘Holy crap, you need to pay attention to this book and its creators.’ So far, in 2013, that list has one name on it and it’s High Crimes.”—Multiversity
“High Crimes might be the best thriller in comics today.”—Newsarama
“Solid characters matched to a top location twisted with a fantastic narrative hook. Not one element of this book is left to rest on its laurels. Sebela and Moustafa ensure everything has a deceptive shadow or drastic turn in it. You can’t predict where this book will go.”—Comic Book Resources
