A thriller debut for fans of The Purge and Scream franchises
PORTLAND, Ore. 10/27/2022 — The first story arc of hit thriller series Rogues’ Gallery by writer Hannah Rose May (rising star Ghosts, Shooter, and Altered Carbon actress) and artist Justin Mason (Spider-Punk)—which was recently picked up in a competitive situation for adaptation—will be collected into trade paperback this December. Rogues’ Gallery, Vol. 1 will collect issues #1-4 of the series and be available from Image Comics just in time for the holidays.
Rogues’ Gallery’s popularity has gained momentum with each new issue’s release and Don Cheadle's This Radicle Act optioned the series recently in a competitive situation. DEADLINE reported: “Cheadle has a first look with Industrial Media and the plan is to adapt Rogues’ Gallery into a TV series… May will serve as an EP and will be producing the series through her Weird Neighbour Productions banner alongside Cheadle, Karyn Smith-Forge and This Radicle Act.”
The series is perhaps best described as The Purge meets Scream. It is a pulse-pounding story that follows disenfranchised TV superhero actress Maisie Wade as she is terrorized by an unhinged group of intruders cosplaying her day job’s arch-villains. If Maisie is going to survive the night, she’ll need to be the hero she has come to despise.
Rogues’ Gallery, Vol. 1 (ISBN: 9781534324503, Diamond Code OCT220060) will be available at local comic book shops on Wednesday, December 7 and Independent Bookstores, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, Indigo, and Waterstones on Tuesday, December 13.
Rogues’ Gallery will also be available across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play.
