Official Press Release
San Diego, CA, January 30, 2004. The nation’s #1 TV franchise, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, flexes its far-reaching power with this brand new CSI: Miami one-shot of high tension and complex mystery.
The discovery of a businessman’s hanging body leads Horatio Caine and his team of Miami CSIs into a labyrinthine case involving duplicity, deception, and double-dealing. The clues pile up, but so do the bodies, and it’s anyone’s guess who did what to whom.
Writer Kris Oprisko (Underworld) presents a script of intrigue and intensity that will have readers and fans of the CSI television franchise guessing on every page. Artist Renato Guedes brings unparalleled realism to the story.
“I loved sinking my teeth into this project,” says Oprisko. “The mix of the cold, clinical CSI approach to crime solving with hot-tempered emotions in steamy Miami gave me plenty of grist for the creative mill.”
According to Jeff Mariotte, IDW Publishing’s Editor-in-Chief, “The combination of Kris’s twists and turns with Renato’s brilliant, almost photo-realistic art style make the reader feel like an episode of the show is playing right before your eyes. CSI: Miami is scoring high in the ratings again this year, and Thou Shalt Not… has everything that keeps viewers coming back time and again.”
CSI: Miami-Thou Shalt Not… is a full color, 48-page squarebound one-shot with a retail price of $6.99.
