You know that our civilisation is in need of a major overhaul when audiences are up for seeing slick politicians and greedy bankers getting a bullet to the head with the same level of emotional detachment as they might read the colourful exploits of square-jawed heroes battling Doctor Doom and General Zod.
Written by Gur Benshemesh (Morgan St. Watch Co.) and illustrated by Ron Randall (Alien, Star Wars), Silence & Co. is an original 176-page, b/w graphic novel in which “a young hitman takes on the world’s most powerful criminal bank”.
When disillusioned Hitman Alexander Maranzano is contacted by the shadowy Silence & co. to fulfill a contract, what starts out as just another job quickly turns into a deadly race for answers. From the dusty streets of Marrakesh to the lush jungles of Colombia, Alex’s search for revenge and the truth behind Silence & Co. triggers a series of events that alter everything he has ever known. And change the nature of organized crime forever.
Silence & Co. will be soliciting through Diamond this March and available in comic shops this May, RRP $9.99. Cover by Eisner winner Steve Lieber (Whiteout, Shooters).
