“Hadrian’s Wall is a locked-door murder mystery in outer space,” said Higgins. “This series brings together our favorite parts of noir—cold blooded murder, the P.I. with a checkered past, and political corruption—with an epic, widescreen, science fiction story.”
“Rod Reis’ stellar art and designs recalls the aesthetic of Blade Runner and Alien, while creating a world that is personal and unique,” said Siegel. “His storytelling has gone to a whole new level.”
“This book started with our love for 1970’s and 80’s Sci-Fi, and quickly grew into something much more. From a murdered crew member, to a failed marriage, to a colony that just wants independence, this is a story about broken relationships—what tears people apart, and what it takes to bring them back together,” said Higgins.
First announced at Image Expo, HADRIAN’S WALL is a six issue miniseries from the creative team behind the critically-acclaimed series C.O.W.L. in which the secrets of everyone involved are as dark as the space that surrounds them and one man’s investigation could make the interstellar Cold War go red hot.
HADRIAN’S WALL #1 (Diamond Code JUL160693) will hit comic book stores on Wednesday, September 14th. The final order cutoff deadline for comic book retailers is Monday, August 22nd.
