Here’s an advance first look at the fourth of five final comic books being released by Bad Idea. Matt Kindt and David Lapham bring back Hero Trade with Hero Trade: Passive/Aggressive one-shot this summer:
“Midnight in Los Angeles, and the brutal vigilante known as The Watch metes out justice, cleaning the street of lawbreaking scum. As fist meets face, The Watch’s phone rings: it’s Fred from Capitol A-1 Bank. The Watch has been hacked — actually, it’s his civilian identity — but Fred sure as shit doesn’t know who he’s talking to — he’s just calling the high-end clients to let them know their bank account’s been drained.
“Don’t worry,” Fred says. “We’re insured. It’ll be fine.”
“No it won’t,” The Watch replies.
The Watch is headed to Russia — with $8.8 billion reasons to kill every last member of the Russian hacking farm —and justice will be measured in broken bones and gallons of blood.
New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT) and legendary illustrator David Lapham (Stray Bullets) give bone-shredding vengeance a name this August as another piece is placed on the HERO TRADE board in a tale guaranteed to shock and provoke.”
Hero Trade: Passive/Aggressive #1 is out Wednesday August 4th and available at participating stores.
