Up-and-coming writer Ricky Mammone and artist Max Bertolini (The Witcher, Nathan Never) bring the psychedelic, action-packed noir Second Chances to trade paperback. The collected edition will be comprised of issues #1-4 of the series and land on shelves from Image Comics this March 2022.
“We’re really excited to have the trade paperback come out, especially since this will be the best way to read Second Chances—uninterrupted and with some bonus features in the back,” said Mammone.
Second Chances Hotline—call now and get a new identity! All you need is some cash, a proper referral, and a very good reason to start over.
Second Chances follows main character Leblanc, the man behind the hotline. The intigue begins when Leblanc is approached by a shady figure from his past and forced to accept a new client who doesn’t meet any of the requirements—a client with chemically induced amnesia in desperate need of protection.
Bertolini added: “Second Chances graphically was a long and fascinating journey in which I poured all my love for Leblanc, I thoroughly explored the graphic possibilities offered by black and white and I dug into my soul to bring to light all the feelings necessary to tell the story. Now all this can be seen with a single fabulous psychedelic gallop.”
Second Chances serves up John Wick action wrapped in a French New Wave fever dream atmosphere and is a must read for any fan of crime noir.
Second Chances trade paperback will be available on Wednesday, March 16 and in bookstores on Tuesday, March 22. It can be pre-ordered at your local comic book shop or independent bookstore or via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, and Indigo.
