Stringer: Embark on an 80s Crime Thriller from Fan-Favorite Writer Patrick Kindlon
Image Comics announced a brand-new series making its way to readers next year titled Stringer. The 80s crime thriller a racquet stringer who finds himself involved in the transport of a half-million dollars worth of drugs. The series comes from fan-favorite writer Patrick Kindlon and artist Paul Tucker who will team up alongside letterer Wallace Ryan to bring readers an anxiety-inducing thriller.
Image Comics’ description of Stringer reads:
“In Stringer, it’s 1983. Tournament tennis. A racquet stringer turned small-time drug dealer gets in over his head transporting a gym bag of cocaine across Europe. Carrying a half-million in narcotics puts him on the radar of every dangerous man on the continent. Whoops.”
Kindlon shares their praise for Tucker’s fearlessness in taking on projects, saying:
“It’s difficult to find an artist as fearless as Paul. Just real go-for-it kamikaze energy. The result is anything we do together has a wildcard element that makes every page a potential showstopper. Every storytelling trick that exists in comics we give a spin in the pages of Stringer. Pair that with a story built for maximum fun, and you’ve got comics gold.”
Tucker also shared that Stringer is their dream book in a sense, saying:
“Comic books and tennis could be written on my tombstone. That’s a bit premature I hope, so in the meantime, we have Stringer, a dream book that I’m very excited for people to check out. Bringing Patrick’s wide cast of offbeat characters to life in a globetrotting misadventure has been a joy, and I hope the fun we’re having on the page has the energy of a five-set thriller.”
Stringer will be available at your favorite local comic shop and digitally on April 19th, 2023.
