ACTION/THRILLER MINISERIES HARDCORE: RELOADED HITS THE MARK THIS DECEMBER
From an idea by Robert Kirkman and Marc Silvestri to a series from Andy Diggle and Alessandro Vitti and now to an all-new team, HARDCORE is back and as action-packed as ever! Taking the reigns for HARDCORE: RELOADED are writer Brandon Thomas (who you know from Skybound’s very own EXCELLENCE and HORIZON), artist Francis Portela (FAITH), colorist Leonardo Paciarotti, letterer Thomas Mauer, and with covers from artist Nic Klein (DEADPOOL, DRIFTER).
When the Hardcore tech leaves government control and hits the general public, Agent Drake is will have to go to some very unwelcome ends to try and get control back.
“To quote a great man, Hardcore: Reloaded is all about that action, boss. It is a celebration and showcase for the most beautiful, glorious, punishing action that comics is capable of, and figuring out a new sequence that would somehow top the one we did the issue before is a challenge every one of us embraces,” said Thomas. “Francis’ crisp lines and amazing details makes for some of the most astounding artwork I’ve ever been connected to, and excited for everyone else’s jaws to slam into the floor when they see these pages.”
Paciarotti added: “Hardcore: Reloaded is so brutal that you’ll feel how the blood splashes in your face through the pages! That happened to me when I put color to the pages! If you liked Vol.1, then with Vol.2 (Reloaded) your brain will explode with excitement!”
If you have any doubts about how hard this comic hits, just scroll for a taste, and that’s just the first 5 pages.
HARDCORE: RELOADED #1 (Diamond Code OCT190046) will be available Wednesday, December 18 at comic book shops across many digital platforms, including the official Image Comics iOS app, Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
