JACK REACHER MEETS JOHN WICK IN GRAPHIC NOVEL THRILLER, OVER MY DEAD BODY,
FROM IMAGE COMICS IN JANUARY 2020 “A killer crime book with a sharp hook.” —Brian K. Vaughan
PORTLAND, Ore. 10/22/2019 — From the acclaimed Near Death comic book series universe—and featuring many of the same characters—comes the all-new, standalone graphic novel thriller Over My Dead Body by Jay Faerber, Simone Guglielmini, Gigi Baldassini, and Ron Riley, with a cover by Jacob Phillips (My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies). It will hit stores this January 2020 from Image Comics.
In Over My Dead Body, a prison warden’s daughter has fallen in with a separatist militia, and the warden’s only chance to rescue her is his most dangerous inmate: the notorious contract killer, Markham. Markham claims that a near-death experience convinced him to atone for his past sins, and to start saving lives instead of taking them. This may be Markham’s one last shot at redemption. But is he ready to die for that shot? Over My Dead Body is a fast-paced, pulpy thriller perfect for fans of Jack Reacher and John Wick.
“Since the moment Near Death ended, Simone and I have been planning the next step in Markham’s path to redemption,” said Faerber. “We’re thrilled to unveil this new thriller that serves as a continuation of that series, but is presented in a fresh, accessible format for new readers.”
Over My Dead Body will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including the official Image Comics iOS app, Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
