IDW’s Black Crown Imprint Sets Its Sights on Eve Stranger, Amnesiac-for-Hire
High-Octane Thrills, Exotic Locales, and Doomed Romance Galore!
San Diego, CA (January 2, 2018) — Writer David Barnett and artist Philip Bond debut the ultimate undercover operator in Eve Stranger, a five-issue miniseries brought to you by Black Crown, IDW’s creator-owned imprint for fiercely independent voices.
Launching in April, Eve Stranger follows a formidable young woman with unnatural abilities and a repeatedly wiped memory, available to the highest bidder under the threat of exploding nanobombs in her bloodstream.
“Imagine if you were the best in the world at pretty much everything. Super-spy. Assassin. International rescue. The jobs nobody else can — or is willing to — take on. Now imagine if you couldn’t even remember that you saved the world last week, and that you have to do it all again today… or you’ll die. Welcome to the world of Eve Stranger,” says co-creator/writer David Barnett.
Co-creator/artist Philip Bond says, “Eve is an amnesiac-for-hire, the ultimate in discretion. For the right price she can be your babysitter or personal shopper, your scuba treasure hunter or space station saboteur.”
“Exotic locales, high-octane thrills, doomed romance, and jetpacks,” says editor Shelly Bond. “It’s a smart, spectacular action/adventure series for the jet set.”
