Duggan & McCrea’s Dead Rabbit Hits The Streets This October From Image Comics

by James Ferguson

Is there anything cooler than a good crime story? We obsess over them as a society with countless renditions of Law & Order and CSI. This October, Image Comics adds another story to the mix with Dead Rabbit.

From creators Gerry Duggan and John McCrea, Dead Rabbit follows Martin Dobbs, a prolific Boston stick-up man / hoodlum who was last active in the ’90s. After one big score, he up and disappeared. It turns out he retired to spend time with the love of his life. Now he’s put the mask back on to save her, but no one, including his wife, the mafia, and the cops, is happy he’s out of retirement.

I am all in for Dead Rabbit. This sounds like it was tailor made for me, especially since it’s got a mix of action, comedy, and drama. I’ve been a big fan of noir stories and the Hard Case Crime novels, so this is right up my alley.
Dead Rabbit #1 is set for release on Wednesday, October 5th. The final order cutoff date for comic book shops is Monday, September 10th. It will feature a main cover by McCrea and a limited variant cover by Dave Johnson.
