Assassin Nation Hits Its Target and Gets Another Shot

Assassin Nation #1 Cover

Assassin Nation, the new comic from Erica Henderson and Kyle Starks, has caused such a frenzy that the first issue is already slated to go back for a second printing.

Two-time Eisner Award winner Henderson (The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Jughead) and Eisner-nominated writer Starks (Rick and Morty, Sexcastle) have a winner in Assassin Nation, which launched last week and gave fans a “side-splitting, mega-violent action-comedy”. Image/Skybound Entertainment has already scheduled a second printing of Assassin Nation #1 in order to keep up with increasing customer demand.

Assassin Nation #1 introduces readers to the World’s (Former) Greatest Hitman—who has a hit out on him. What to do? Why, hire the 20 best assassins in the world to be his bodyguards, of course. These mean-as-hell hired guns and murderers will have to work together to keep the new crime boss safe, figure out who’s trying to off him, and also… survive.

In the same spirit of classic action comedies like Hot Fuzz, Tropic Thunder, and DeadpoolAssassin Nation is the “bombastic, hilarious, murder-fest readers have been waiting for”.

The second printing of Assassin Nation #1 will be available on Wednesday, April 17. The final order deadline for comic retailers is Monday, March 25. It will also be made available for purchase on many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, Google Play, the official Image Comics iOS app.
