Mystery crime series OLD WOUNDS to launch in April

old wounds 1 coverRetired vigilante Michael Lane thought his secrets were long buried in the past, along with his cloak and mask. But when his ex-wife Lori is suddenly killed in a house explosion and his former associates become the targets of similar attacks, those secrets threaten to come back to haunt him.

Launching April 8, OLD WOUNDS is a four-issue comic book mini-series written by Russell Lissau and drawn by John Bivens that’s equal parts crime drama and action thriller, following Lane and police detectives Frank King and Alyssa Hess as they try to solve Lori’s murder…and prevent their own!

Lissau, who has written a wide variety of comic books, including THE BATMAN STRIKES!, STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE and SHREK, previously worked with Bivens on “One of Us,” a short story published in our OMEGA COMICS PRESENTS anthology, where detectives King and Hess first appeared. Like that first story, OLD WOUNDS is presented in pulpy black and white.

Minneapolis-based Bivens is also currently collaborating with writer Ryan Burton on the series DARK ENGINE for Image Comics, and his previous work has appeared in the award-winning COMIC BOOK TATTOO, POPGUN, and READING WITH PICTURES.

OLD WOUNDS #1 can be pre-ordered now from the February issue of Previews (Diamond Code FEB151566) and will be available in comic book stores on Apr. 8 for $2.99, as well as on digital platforms including Comixology and Comics Plus for 99 cents.
