Preview: Recovery Incorporated
Michael Penick tells the Pulse…
Kicked off the police force because she found it difficult to obey the rules, Mia Raven started her own business, RECOVERY INCORPORATED, to help victims track down and recover valuable stolen property. Keyword: valuable. Her services don’t come cheap, but her success rate is phenomenal and her wardrobe shows it. Slick on the surface, dangerously charming, recklessly courageous, and with a past she desperately wants to keep buried , Mia Raven brings to the page a new heroine in the fine tradition of Modesty Blaise, La Femme Nikita, and The Thomas Crown Affair.
Michael Penick, artist on the America’s Army online comic and BOOM’s Insurrection V3.6, brings the new heroine to life with his long-time friend and writing partner, Dean Deckard. “I was asked to be a part of STRIP Magazine UK, so I sat down and thought, ‘what would I really love to draw’, and instantly had the answer.” And just like that, Mia Raven was born, a heroine imbued with a real sense of class and style.
“It was kind of like a ‘duh’ moment. Dean and I are huge fans of The Thomas Crown Affair – the version released in the 90’s with Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo. I’ve always thought Russo’s character in that film to be one of the more intriguing characters in modern cinema, so that was the initial inspiration. Once we had that as our starting point the rest was easy.”
