Garth Ennis, Steve Epting Team Up for WWII Russia Comic

Garth Ennis is no stranger to the darker parts of humanity. The writer is famous for his gritty, sometimes disgusting and controversial stories in Hellblazer, The Boys, Preacher, The Punisher and Hitman.

Now, Ennis is teaming with artist Steve Epting to take readers on a trip to World War II-era Russia in a new graphic novel from TKO Studios simply titled Sara.

On Twitter, TKO released a teaser image drawn by Epting and colored by Elizabeth Breitweiser. It depicts a woman in winter apparel, most likely the eponymous Sara, holding a rife against a background of barbed wire.

In front of the woman, ominous text, which is repeated in the above tweet, reads, "Nazi Occupied Russia, 1942. Fight Hard. Shoot Straight. Don't let them take you alive."

While details on the book are slight, the graphic novel will apparently focus on a group of female Russian snipers battling Nazis during World War II on the Eastern Front and will apparently be the first in a series. While TKO announced that the title was "coming soon," the publisher did not name a specific release date for the title.
