“A great #$%^ed up blend of James Bond and Tintin.”–Keanu Reeves
From New York Times bestselling Mind MGMT creator MATT KINDT and Quantum Age’s WILFREDO TORRES comes a brand-new pulp-inspired tale of action, mystery, and altered reality.
A best-of the-best secret agent with memories he couldn’t possibly possess, a mystery writer in her 80s 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.
Collects BANG! #1-#5, along with all covers, a sketchbook section, and pinups by Matt Kindt.
