ROGUES’ GALLERY THRILLER SERIES PITS CELEBRITY AGAINST COSPLAYING VILLAINS THIS JULY
Debut writer Hannah Rose May (actress known for Shooter, Altered Carbon) and rising-star artist Justin Mason (Spider-Punk) team up with fan favorite Declan Shalvey (Time Before Time, Bog Bodies) for an all-new ongoing series titled, Rogues’ Gallery. This new thriller will launch from Image Comics in July.
“Rogues’ Gallery is a very timely story that I felt compelled to tell. I wanted to explore what happens when fandom can turn into unhealthy obsession and where the line between reality and fiction blurs,” said May. “Every superhero has an origin story and this is Maisie Wade’s. I’m very fortunate to have partnered with such an exceptional team on this series and incredibly excited to have my first book be published by Image Comics.”
The Purge meets Scream in this pulse-pounding story that follows disenfranchised TV superhero actress Maisie Wade as she is terrorized by an unhinged group of intruders cosplaying her day job’s archvillains. If Maisie is going to survive the night, she’ll need to be the hero she has come to despise.
Shalvey added: “It’s been great to help guide talented newcomers like Hannah and Justin and help them make Rogues’ Gallery a reality. This book is an interesting look at where superhero media and superhero fiction meet, with deadly consequences. Hannah Rose May’s writing is razor sharp and expertly skews Hollywood culture, depicted brilliantly, moodily and excitingly by Justin Mason. Comics mainstays like Triona Farrell and Hassan Otsmane Elhou add their experience to really land this unique story.”
“Working on Rogues’ Gallery alongside this talented team was a blast, I feel we each brought a unique flavor that bundles into one amazing story. Readers will be in for a wild ride from start to finish that really captures the world we live in today,” said Mason.
