Image Comics announces tragicomic crime series ‘Write It In Blood’

About Write It In Blood: ‘A great-looking Fargo-esque tale of Hitmen… Rory McConville’s a crime voice to watch.’ —Rob Williams, Old Haunts Suicide Squad

Image Comics has announced a new crime series called Write It in Blood. Out this February, the tragicomic crime tale is by Rory McConville (Judge Dredd), Joe Palmer (2000 AD), and Chris O’Halloran (Ice Cream Man).

“I’m thrilled to have been a part of making this book happen,” said Palmer. “Rory’s a great writer and has crafted a really tight crime thriller. The fact that Image comics is publishing it is a dream come true! If you’re into Coen brothers’ movies and crime stories with a streak of humour you’ll love this.”

So what’s it about?

On the eve of their retirement, two hitmen—Cosmo and Arthur Pryce—drive through the Texas countryside with the infamous Little Harkness in the trunk of their car. The brothers are meant to deliver Harkness to their boss, but matters become complicated when Arthur’s recklessness jeopardises Cosmo’s retirement plans and puts a target on their backs.
