Kyle Higgins (C.O.W.L., Nightwing), Alec Siegel (C.O.W.L., Avengers) and Rod Reis (C.O.W.L., Justice League) have poured their love of intrigue, science fiction, and noir into Hadrian’s Wall, an upcoming locked door murder mystery–in space. P.I. Simon Moore has to find out who killed the man who married his ex-wife–and she is a suspect.
Locked room mysteries are long-time staples of the mystery genre, and it’s always a pleasure seeinge writers taking up the challenge of finding a new approach to the problem. The art on Hadrian’s Wall looks like it could make the comic worthwhile all by itself:
Synopsis for Hadrian’s Wall
The man who shot Simon Moore four times and married his ex wife has been found dead aboard the spacecraft Hadrian’s Wall. But Simon isn’t a suspect, he’s the private investigator hired to explain the death, and it’s his ex-wife who emerges as one of the suspects. This fall, writers Kyle Higgins (C.O.W.L., Nightwing) and Alec Siegel (C.O.W.L., Avengers), reunite with artist Rod Reis (C.O.W.L., Justice League) for HADRIAN’S WALL, an intergalactic noir with drugs and divorce, crime and conspiracy, and a last chance for redemption in the far reaches of space.
“HADRIAN’S WALL is a locked door murder mystery in outer space,” said co-writer Kyle Higgins. “This series brings together our favorite parts of noir — cold blooded murder, the P.I. with a checkered past, and political
corruption — with an epic, widescreen, science fiction story.”
HADRIAN’S WALL #1 (Diamond Code JUL160693) will hit comic book stores on Wednesday,
September 14th. The final order cutoff deadline for comic book retailers is Monday, August 22nd.
