BANG! #1 Convention Exclusive Sketch Cover (Matt Kindt)
$40.00 each

A best-of-the-best secret agent with memories he couldn’t possibly possess, a mystery writer in her 60s who spends her retirement solving crimes, a man of action with mysterious drugs that keep him ahead of a constant string of targeted disasters, a seemingly omnipotent terrorist organization that might be behind it all . . .

And they’re all connected to one man: a science-fiction author with more information than seems possible, whose books may hold the key to either saving reality or destroying it.

* A mind-bending story that ties in with past Kindt works (Revolver).

Action, mystery, and altered reality! Individual, one of a kind, sketched covers by Matt Kindt! No two copies will be the same!

** Cover selection is randomized upon order placement. Sketch will not match the image displayed. Sketches may include line art, stamp work, artistic damaging, etc. This item is NOT eligible for return or exchange.
