New comic from Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips

September 16, 2008

I’ve read about this in a few places online now and the creative team behind Criminal and Sleeper are working on a new 5 part mini series called Incognito. It’s an Icon book, so that means it’s creator owned and creator managed book which is printed by Marvel. So they have to do all of the hard work to promote it. But it does mean a creator like Ed Brubaker, who probably has a Marvel exclusive contract, can work on something completely different to his Marvel work, stretch other muscles and insert wacky ideas and stories into a project he has complete control over, without having to go elsewhere. So it’s a win win situation really.

Here’s a summary of the premise and a promo picture to tease you:-

What if you were an ex-super villain hiding out in Witness Protection… but all you could think about were the days when the rules didn’t apply to you? Could you stand the toil of an average life after years of leaving destruction in your wake? And what if you couldn’t stand it? What would you do then?

INCOGNITO – a twisted mash-up of noir and super-heroics – by best-selling creators Ed Brubaker (The Death of Captain America) and Sean Phillips (Marvel Zombies) with Val Staples on colors.
