Coming this September, Image Comics is releasing a brand graphic novel, The Mercenary Sea Volume 1: Top Hat, White Lies, and Tales from Kel Symons and Mathew Reynolds. It will take a group of mercenaries on a mission where they have bitten off a little more than they can chew.
1938, the South Seas: Japan has invaded China. War in Europe is imminent. And, in THE MERCENARY SEA, a new Image Comics graphic novel by Kel Symons and Mathew Reynolds, ex-bootlegger Jack Harper captains the Venture, a refitted German U-Boat, with a crew of expats, mercenaries, and treasure hunters. In the September release, this rag-tag group of ruffians and renegades will do whatever it takes to stay afloat, often running up against pirates, headhunters, spies, and soldiers.
In VOLUME ONE: TOP HAT, WHITE LIES, AND TALES, Jack and his crew take a job offered by a shady operative: rescue a British agent carrying valuable intelligence about the Japanese war effort. Meanwhile, Jack dreams of landing the greatest score ever: the legendary lost island of Koji Ra.
You can pick up The Mercenary Sea Volume 1: Top Hats, White Lies, and Tales on September 3rd in comic stores and September 16th in bookstores. Until then, check out a preview from the first three pages below!
