Throwaways by bestselling author Caitlin Kittredge, artist Steven Sanders, and letterer Rachel Deering will hit comic book shelves this July.
The series was first announced at Image Expo and most recently teased in the inaugural issue of Image+ Magazine. The story follows Abby Palmer and Dean Logan who are both completely broken. Abby is a veteran with severe PTSD and Dean is a burnout trying to escape his infamous father’s shadow. However, the two are thrust into a modern-day MK-ULTRA conspiracy where they discover they are both ULTRA’s human experiments
“Throwaways is the comic I’ve been waiting my whole career to write, and I can’t think of a better publisher than Image or a better collaborator than Steven,” said Kittredge. “This book is a collection of everything I love—spies, superpowers, secret history, conspiracies and action, grounded in a big dose of flawed, realistic characters. It’s just plain fun to write this book and I can’t wait for it to be unleashed on the world.”
Sanders added: “Throwaways has been a blast to work on! Just getting to draw ‘real life’ telekinetic fights has been something of a dream come true. I’ve had an itch to draw that sort of thing since I was a kid. It’s also giving me the chance to try out some illustration techniques I’ve just recently learned about. There’s a lot of detail to play with, a lot of action, but also quiet moments to build up tension. It’s hard for an artist to not be excited about a comic like this.”
Throwaways #1 (Diamond Code MAY160548) hits comic book shelves on Wednesday, July 6th. The final order cutoff deadline is Monday, June 13th.
