Press Release: Deadpool Writer Gerry Duggan teams with Hitman Co-Creator & Artist John Mccrea for vigilante series Dead Eyes from Image!

We’re a bit specific as to what comic news to shout about (there’s a hell of a lot of it!) but when we heard that Deadpool’s Gerry Duggan was teaming with Garth Ennis’ frequent collaborator (Troubled Souls, Hitman) John McCrea on an ongoing series we just had to give it a shout here.


Press release from Image below – worth reading for McCrea’s comment aside from anything else 😉


PORTLAND, Ore. 07/19/2019 — Artist John McCrea (Mythic, Hitman) and writer Gerry Duggan (Analog, Deadpool) team up to bring readers action, comedy, and drama in the forthcoming series Dead Eyes. This ongoing series will launch from Image Comics with an oversized first issue this October.

“We’re very happy to introduce you to the violent, funny, and sad world without justice in Dead Eyes,” said Duggan. “A former stick-up man must return to his life of crime when the pressures of living in a Kleptocracy push him to the breaking point. This is McCrea & Spicer’s very best work and we’re thrilled to punch Dead Eyes into your face beginning this October.”

McCrea said only: “I’m too busy drawing ball-busting sh*t to give you a goddamn quote.”

Set in the 1990s, “Dead Eyes” was a prolific stick-up man and hoodlum in Boston until he took down one last big score and disappeared. Nobody ever discovered the truth. He retired to be with the love of his life, but now he’s back in the mask to save her. No one—not his wife, the mafia, or the cops—is happy that he’s out of retirement.

Dead Eyes hits comic shops on Wednesday, October 2.
