Publisher teams up with the visionary behind The Warriors & Triggerman, Walter Hill, to bring his pulp noir to comic stores!

Titan Comics are expanding their Hard Case Crime comics imprint in January 2017 with the next title in the critically acclaimed line, crime noir thriller (re)ASSIGNMENT.

Published for the first time in English, Hard Case Crime’s (re)ASSIGNMENT will bring Walter Hill (director of The Warriors), Matz and Jef’s comic book that inspired the upcoming Neo-Noir movie – starring Michelle Rodriguez (Fast & Furious), Adrian Hough and Sigourney Weaver (Aliens) – to comic stores in 2017.

Described by The Hollywood Reporter as “an instant cult item,” Walter Hill’s (re)ASSIGNMENT movie premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival this year and is already one of the most talked about films of the year.

In (re)ASSIGNMENT, hitman Frank Kitchen takes a job to eliminate a celebrated fashion designer who’s fallen behind on his debts to the mob. The story takes a savage turn when the victim’s sister, a sociopathic surgeon, decides to punish Frank in a unique way. Abducted and operated on against his will, Frank Kitchen awakens in an altered condition – but still with a hitman’s hunger for revenge…

Director Walter Hill says, “I’m looking forward to working with Titan Comics on (re)ASSIGNMENT – I believe we’re already off to a fine start with Triggerman. And I’m certainly pleased the story will be coming to an English speaking audience.”

Hard Case Crime is the leading publisher of hardboiled crime novels, publishing the giants in the genre: Stephen King, Michael Crichton, Lawrence Block, Mickey Spillane, Ed McBain, Donald E. Westlake, James M. Cain and Max Allan Collins, whose best-selling Quarry series was adapted for TV by Cinemax in September to rave reviews.

Hard Case Crime is also now the leading comics imprint for comics noir, with Walter Hill’s Triggerman, and Christa Faust & Gary Phillip’s Peepland hitting stores in October, and the forthcoming comic book adaption of Max Allan Collin’s Quarry arriving in 2017.

(re)ASSIGNMENT #1 hits comic stores in January 2017, and is available to pre-order from the November edition of Diamond PREVIEWS.
