Ahead of the release of Mark Millar and Simone Bianchi's Sharkey the Bounty Hunter #1, Netflix has released a short trailer to give readers a mere taste of what's in store for them from the newest Millarworld series.
Sharkey the Bounty Hunter is a sci-fi action comedy in which its titular character scours the galaxy for criminals with the aid of a 10-year old companion traveling the stars in a rocket-powered ice cream truck.
"When I joined Netflix on staff last year we had this crazy plan of a big sci-fi universe of movies and Sharkey is the first of these,” explained Millar in a written statement through Netflix. "Sharkey kicks off a whole world of sci-fi that’s just a great action comedy in the style of all the movies I grew up with. I love blue-collar heroes and I like the parent/ kid dynamic from movies like Paper Moon or Leon: The Professional and, of course, Big Daddy and Hit-Girl."
Sharkey the Bounty Hunter #1 is written by Mark Millar and illustrated by Simone Bianchi. It is scheduled to go on sale February 20 from Image Comics and Netflix.
