Sex, drugs, and murder in 1980s Los
Angeles… And the best new twist on paperback pulp heroes since The Punisher or
Ed Brubaker and
Sean Phillips, the modern masters of crime noir, bring us the last thing anyone
expected from them – a good guy – in a bold new series of original graphic
novels, with three books releasing over the next year, each a full-length story
that stands on its own.
Ethan Reckless: Your trouble is his business, for the right price. But when a
fugitive from his student radical days reaches out for help, Ethan must face the
only thing he fears… his own past.
“Imagine Redford at his peak,
ambling through sun-drenched, eighties L.A. in a serpentine plot that is equal
parts Long Goodbye and Point Break. No one does crime fic like Brubaker and
Phillips and their collaboration has never felt more new. Explosive. Vital. And
yes… reckless. I love this book.” – Damon Lindelof (Lost, HBO’s Watchmen)
“Reckless is an absolute
rush: on the same level as golden age Travis McGee novels and the
hardest-hitting Richard Stark stories. This one comes at you as fast as Steve
McQueen in a souped-up Mustang and as hard as Charles Bronson with a baseball
bat. You gotta have it.” – Joe Hill (Locke & Key, N0S4A2)
Look for book 2 in the
Reckless series in April 2021!
