‘Stinger’ kicks off ‘Rabbit Hole’ universe of high impact crime comics

Check out an advance preview of ‘Stinger’ #1 by Patrick Kindlon and Paul Tucker.

Press Release

Image Comics has announced a new series Stinger, launching in April 2023 and launching the crime comics universe “Rabbit Hole.” Written by Patrick Kindlon with art by Paul Tucker, the original graphic novel hardcover comes out on April 19th.

“It’s difficult to find an artist as fearless as Paul. Just real go-for-it kamikaze energy,” said Kindlon. “The result is anything we do together has a wildcard element that makes every page a potential showstopper. Every storytelling trick that exists in comics we give a spin in the pages of Stringer. Pair that with a story built for maximum fun, and you’ve got comics gold.”

So what’s Stinger about?

It’s 1983. Tournament tennis. A racquet stringer turned small-time drug dealer gets in over his head transporting a gym bag of cocaine across Europe. Carrying a half-million in narcotics puts him on the radar of every dangerous man on the continent. Whoops.

Tucker added: “Comic books and tennis could be written on my tombstone. That’s a bit premature I hope, so in the meantime we have Stringer, a dream book that I’m very excited for people to check out. Bringing Patrick’s wide cast of offbeat characters to life in a globetrotting misadventure has been a joy, and I hope the fun we’re having on the page has the energy of a five-set thriller.”
