With the release date of POINT BLANK #1 just two weeks away, DC Comics is providing extra ammunition to retailers in the form of a free 50% oveship of the issue, scheduled to arrive in stores on August 14. This quantity is based on initial orders only.
This action-packed, Eye of the Storm miniseries aims at the heart of the WildStorm Universe. Have you ever had something on the edge of your thoughts but couldn't recall it? That's the problem facing Cole Cash - a.k.a. Grifter of the WildCats. He's determined to get to the bottom of the mystery in POINT BLANK - a 5-issue mature-readers super-hero noir spectacular from WildStorm's "Eye of the Storm!"
POINT BLANK is by acclaimed writer Ed Brubaker (BATMAN, CATWOMAN) and noted European comics artist Colin Wilson (Lt. Blueberry), and features startling painted covers by Simon Bisley. Issue #1 also features a variant cover by Colin Wilson on 50% of copies.
After being summoned by his old Team 7 associate and legendary I.O. spook John Lynch, Cole is ensnared in a deadly game of cat and mouse. The perpetrators and their ultimate goals become the least of Grifter's concerns after Lynch falls victim to a vicious attack that leaves him at the abyss of death.
"Between his work on BATMAN and CATWOMAN, Ed Brubaker's reputation as awriter of hard-hitting, crime-driven stories is growing by leaps andbounds," says Vince Letterio, DC's Manager - Direct Sales. "To top that off, Colin Wilson's art has to be seen to be believed. He's not that well known in the U.S., but we've had lots of artists tell us how much they love his work."
The conclusion of this gripping miniseries leads directly into SLEEPER, an ongoing Eye of the Storm series by Brubaker and artist Sean Phillips.
