Everyone gather around! Did you hear? Two-time Eisner winner Erica Henderson (Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Jughead) has a new book that is hella full of swears, an excessive amount of violence and ton of murders. Welcome to ASSASSIN NATION.
The World’s Former Greatest Hitman hires the 20 best assassins in the world to be his bodyguards. These mean-as-hell hired guns and murderers must work together to keep the new crime boss safe while attempting to solve the mystery of who’s trying to off him.
Written by two-time Eisner nominee Kyle Starks (Rick and Morty, Rock Candy Mountain) in the vein of his action-comedy cult classics Sexcastle and Kill Them All, ASSASSIN NATION is the bombastic, adrenaline fueled murder-fest you’ve been waiting for!
Kyle Starks is the Eisner nominated creator of SEXCASTLE and ROCK CANDY MOUNTAIN (both at Image Comics) and has also written a bunch of other great stuff like RICK AND MORTY and INVADER ZIM and is generally recognized as a pretty good, laugh making, funny boy. He hails from Southern Indiana where he is married to the most wonderful woman and lucky father of the most fantastic little girls. He is an alright dude. Supposedly.
