What would your life be like if you killed superheroes for a living?
Duke is the world’s worst superhero assassin. We’re not exaggerating – he sucks at killing superheroes, always needs a supervillain partner to help him with his hits, and the agency only ever seems to send him after d-list loser superheroes.
To make matters worse, his ex-wife/ rival assassin, Sharon, is brilliant at it, and she keeps stealing his hits.
It’s ok, though – Duke’s going to show everyone he’s got what it takes by taking out the world’s number one super hero team – The Liberty Brigade.
Just, you know – once he figures out how.
Turncoat was written by Ryan O’Sullivan. Although Turncoat is was his first comic series, he’s gone on to write Eisenhorn: Xenos (TPub), Void Trip (Image), Fearscape (Vault Comics), and Dark Souls (Titan Comics), as well as being one quarter of the White Noise comic-writer studio.
Turncoat was illustrated, coloured, AND lettered by Plaid Klaus, a New York based artist and one of Ryan’s partners in crime. He also worked on Void Trip with Ryan, and you can tell that they’re a team that’s hard to beat. He also has an online course on how to make a comic book – similar to our own, but with more of a spin towards illustrators. You can check that out on his website, or contact him via Twitter.
Turncoat was edited and produced by Neil Gibson.
