The synopsis for the story focuses on the world’s (former) greatest hitman, who has a ‘hit’ out on him. So he opts to hire 20 of the best assassins in the world to serve as his bodyguards. They must now all learn to work together to keep the boss safe and figure out who wants him dead.
“I’m so excited for this book,” said Henderson. “Kyle and I have been wanting to work together for as long as we’ve been friends. It’s great to finally make that happen. There aren’t a lot of comics with Kyle’s action and comedy sensibilities, so it’s just been a blast. On top of that, it’s nice to work in other genres. My professional career has been largely all-ages media so it’s been REALLY fun to get some gore and explosions in there too. Assassin Nation is great fun, but NOT for the whole family.”
The first issue is set to release on Wednesday, March 13, 2019.
