Image Comics has revealed a sneak peek (albeit one page) of the new “spy-fi” series Old Dog #1 by writer/artist Declan Shalvey (Moon Knight, X-Men Unlimited, Bog Bodies, Time Before Time). And a good few variant covers too:
“Old Dog follows Jack Lynch—once-promising CIA operative, soon-to-be retiree—who is tasked with one final mission… and that mission goes horribly wrong. He wakes years later to a changed world and deeper changes within him. When a shadow group offers Lynch a second chance at a life of adventure, he’s paired with the last person he could ever imagine. In order to adjust, this old dog will have to learn some new tricks…”
Shalvey had this to say about this new six-issue mini-series:
“I’m excited to finally let Old Dog off his leash this August. I’m putting everything I have into this initial 6 issue ‘Redact’—all written, drawn, coloured and designed by myself. I’m making sure this is the best looking book I’ve ever drawn, down to the lovely card-stock cover. For me, Old Dog is a return to the bold, moody, action packed storytelling I enjoy, each issue detailing a new adventure and opportunity to draw something cooler than the chapter before. I’m aiming to make an event-book with this, and ye’re all invited to come along.”
Old Dog #1 will be available on Wednesday, August 24th from Image Comics.
