PORTLAND, OR, 03/21/2019 — Two-time Eisner Award winner Erica Henderson (The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Jughead) and Eisner-nominated writer Kyle Starks (Rick and Morty, Sexcastle) hit their mark with the launch of Assassin Nation last week and delivered fans a side-splitting, mega-violent action-comedy. In order to keep up with the growing customer demand, Image/Skybound Entertainment's Assassin Nation #1 is already slated to go back to print.
Assassin Nation #1 introduces readers to the World’s (Former) Greatest Hitman—who has a hit out on him. What to do? Why, hire the 20 best assassins in the world to be his bodyguards, of course. These mean-as-hell hired guns and murderers will have to work together to keep the new crime boss safe, figure out who’s trying to off him, and also… survive.
With the same laugh-until-you-cry spirit of action-comedies like Hot Fuzz, Tropic Thunder, and Deadpool, Assassin Nation is the bombastic, hilarious, murder-fest readers have been waiting for.
It will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including the official Image Comics iOS app, Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
