PREVIEW: “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang” #1

Official Press Release

Powered by a surge of critical acclaim and a sneak peek in all of CrossGen’s
January titles, KISS KISS BANG BANG #1 rockets into stores on January 14th!
Writer Tony Bedard, penciler Mike Perkins, inker Andrew Hennessy and
colorist Laura Villari have unleashed what may be comics’ most talked about
character of 2004…but is the world ready for Sir Charles Basildon? Let’s
see what reviewers — who received a top-secret preview for their eyes only
— had to say about the debut of the sexy spy series…

“CrossGen delivers a book that fires on all cylinders! Perkins’ art is
fantastic, and Bedard introduces an exciting cast and a dynamic story that
hits the ground running at full speed. The tagline is true: (Charles)
Basildon is truly the spy you’ll love to hate. Grade: A+” – Robert Scott,
Comics Buyer’s Guide

“CrossGen continues to explore every comic genre…and nobody does it
better!” -Comic Shop News

“Great stuff…KISS KISS BANG BANG delivers everything that’s in the title,
and in the process takes the reader through a fun ride through the spy genre
that’s full of potential.” -Randy Lander,

“A very promising, winkingly naughty, character-driven spy book…CrossGen
has another breakout hit on their hands, which should follow in the
footsteps of the recently launched EL CAZADOR to become another solid and
exciting standalone title backed up with a creative team whose heart is
obviously devoted to their work.” -Jared Moraitis,

“Kudos to Bedard and Perkins for changing my perception of
CrossGen…Bedard’s fun stories and witty dialogue, alongside Perkins’
wonderfully detailed artwork, have given this book the force of a
locomotive!” -Ryan Scott Ottney,

“A thrilling, globe-hopping adventure…the first ‘must-have’ comic of
2004!” -Heath Shelby,

“A delightful updating of a familiar favorite, amplifying some of the
interesting aspects of the Bond legacy with a wicked twist…(and) another
winner for CrossGen much in the same mold of EL CAZADOR.” -Augie De Blieck

“This isn’t your father’s secret agent…Curse you, Bedard! Now I have to
add another book to my monthly pull list.” -Mike Bullock,

“Tony Bedard and Mike Perkins put on a clinic on how to whet the appetite
for a comic series…featuring great art, and more evidence that Bedard is a
frickin’ comic genius!” -Mike Maillaro,

“Explosive and irreverent…Bedard posits that in order for one to assume
the sort of extreme espionage duties associated with 007 and the like, one
would have to be reckless, boast a manic personality and most importantly,
one must be an utter a**hole. In other words, Bedard introduces his readers
to Sir Charles Basildon.” -Don MacPherson,

Don’t miss out on the fun: make sure you zoom into your local comics
specialty store to snag your copy of KISS KISS BANG BANG #1!
