ANALOG #1
STORY: GERRY DUGGAN
ART / COVER: DAVID O’SULLIVAN, JORDIE BELLAIRE
VARIANT COVER: DECLAN SHALVEY
APRIL 04 / 32 PAGES / FC / M / $3.99
CHAPTER ONE Five years from now: the security of the internet has been totally destroyed. Secrets are no longer sent over the web, they’re entrusted to armed couriers called “Ledger Men,” like human punching-bag Jack McGinnis. He’s got a gun in one hand and a briefcase handcuffed to the other. Danger lurks around every corner, and Jack has to watch his back—because he had a part in the cyber attack that changed the world. Get in on the ground floor of this new ongoing series and thrill as we slam Jack’s fist into the faces of spies, mercs, fascists, and eventually less punchable adversaries like a very grumpy artificial intelligence. From your new favorite artist, DAVID O’SULLIVAN, and GERRY DUGGAN, The New York Times bestselling author of such indie titles as Deadpool, Star Wars: Chewbacca, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Uncanny Avengers!
“Cinque anni nel futuro: internet è stato completamente distrutto e Jack (che ha avuto un ruolo attivo nell’attacco alla rete) deve guardarsi le spalle da spie, fascisti un’intelligenza artificiale molto pericolosa.”
