Comic book writer Jay Faerber of Noble Causes, Titans and Copperhead has a new original graphic novel out from Image Comics in January. With art from his collaborator on Image’s Near Death, Simone Guglielmini and Gigi Baldassini, coloured by Ron Riley and cover by Jacob Phillips.
I’ve got a new graphic novel out in January. It’s a novel-length thriller called OVER MY DEAD BODY, about Markham, a hitman who switches sides after a near death experience. If you like John Wick or Jack Reacher, I think this is gonna be right up your alley.
It’s ALL-NEW and it’s sort of a sequel to my old book, NEAR DEATH.
And we have a first look at the comic book, below…
OVER MY DEAD BODY TP
(W) Jay Faerber (A) Simone Guglielmini, Gigi Baldassini, Ron Riley (CA) Jacob Phillips
A prison warden’s daughter has fallen in with a separatist militia, and the warden’s only chance to rescue her is his most dangerous inmate: the notorious contract killer, Markham. Markham claims that a near-death experience convinced him to atone for his past sins, and to start saving lives instead of taking them. This may be Markham’s one last shot at redemption. But is he ready to die for that shot?
A fast-paced, pulpy thriller for fans of Jack Reacher and John Wick, OVER MY DEAD BODY is an all-new original graphic novel featuring characters from the acclaimed NEAR DEATH comic book series. “A killer crime book with a very sharp hook.” -BRIAN K.
