Gail Simone and Cat Staggs Get Freaky (Friday) with Thrilling New Series CROSSWIND This June

Image Comics is thrilled to announce CROSSWIND, the brand-new ongoing thriller from fan-favorites Gail Simone (Red Sonja, Secret Six) and Cat Staggs (Wonder Woman ‘77, Smallville Season 11), arriving in stores this June.

A slick and ruthless Chicago hitman. 

A smart but downtrodden Seattle housewife.

When an inexplicable event strikes these two random strangers, their bodies, souls, and lives are switched—to potentially deadly effect.

“This is possibly the most thrilling project of my career, and Cat Staggs brought her best stomping boots to the game; she's absolutely killing it,” said Simone. “There's nothing else quite like it. It smells of gunpowder, nitro, and one-hour hotel rooms. It's wrong and messed up, and we hope people love it as much as we do.”

“I am thrilled to be working with the incomparable Gail Simone in a genre that is close to my heart,” said Staggs. “The challenge of bringing these characters to life and developing their world has made this project something I’m proud of. Readers are in for a wild ride.”

CROSSWIND #1 (Diamond code: APR170674) hits comic book stores Wednesday, June 21st. Final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, May 29th.

Early praise for CROSSWIND:

“CROSSWIND will sneak up on you from behind and knock you sideways. Gail Simone is at her absolute sharpest, and Cat Staggs’s art is daring and sexy. Freakin’ impressive is what it is…!” —Cully Hamner (RED, The Question)

“Cat Staggs's art will grab you by the throat and kick you in the teeth. This is one creepy ride.” —Joe Harris (ROCKSTARS, X-Files)

“Freaky Friday—yes! But dark and twisted and such great art and page composition. And glints of humour. This is great, kinetic, mind-warping work. Art reminded me of Chaykin’s The Shadow meets Bill Sienkiewicz. I love this.” —Ian Rankin (Inspector Rebus novels)

Nonetheless, they need 56 to be free on the streets for now so they can monitor him. The brothers c…

REVIEW: 'Infidel' #1 by Pornsak Pichetshote, Aaron Campbell, and Jose Villarrubia

'Infidel' #1 by Pornsak Pichetshote and Aaron Campbell arrives at a time when the horrors of everyday life for marginalized people is scary enough but add misogyny and xenophobia from demons and well, that's just multi-dimensional haterade. This contemporary horror story feels timely and brimming with scary thrills.

Aisha is an American Muslim woman who just moved into a haunted apartment building with her boyfriend, his child, and his mother. It's the perfect horror movie set-up that includes a tragic incident that led to the killing of several people, the haunting aftermath of the explosion, a boyfriend's xenophobic possibly racist mother, and terrifying nightmares. Pichetshote has cooked up a potent cauldron consisting of the right horror tropes mixed with equally horr…
