In July, BOOM! Studios will bring back into print the classic Steven Grant and Mike Zeck original series, DAMNED. This new collection will arrive in stores just ahead of the release of the 2 GUNS feature film on August 2nd, starring Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg.
In a world of lies, honor can be murder...2 GUNS creator
Steven Grant (3 GUNS, ROBOCOP: LAST STAND)
reunites with his artist from THE PUNISHER: CIRCLE OF BLOOD, Mike Zeck
(THE PUNISHER, SECRET WARS), for a truly hard-hitting crime noir story that
will knock you senseless!
“Damned was the last major collaboration between Mike Zeck
and me, the final result of an investigation into the possibilities of crime
comics that we’d begun with The Punisher mini-series and Return To Big
Nothing,” explains Grant. “It’s very
gratifying to have a publisher like Boom! respond so strongly to it, and very
exciting to have it back in print for a new audience.”
When Mick Thorne is paroled and released from prison, the
only thing on his mind is keeping a promise. But in keeping that promise to
deliver a message to his dead cellmate's sister, he draws the attention of the
local crime boss. This sharply designed collection of the classic noir in the
vein of Richard Stark’s PARKER novels includes the entire series plus a brand
new foreword by Grant and character studies by Zeck.
DAMNED will arrive in stores on July 31st, 2013. The 144-page, full
color soft cover collection retails for $16.99.
