A new comic book series written by Warren Ellis and illustrated by Declan Shalvey
Why I’m excited:
I was first drawn to this by the beautiful cover art you see above. Then I learned that Ellis and Shalvey are the team behind Marvel’s relaunch of ‘Moon Knight’ (which I’ll admit I haven’t read but I’ve heard nothing but good things about.) Apparently they enjoyed working together so much that after ‘Moon Knight’ was over they went to Image Comics where they were allowed to create their own material with no limitations on how many installments there had to be. Injection takes place when the world is on the brink of the apocalypse (surprise, surprise… this theme just keeps coming up). The main characters are former British Government agents who are past their prime. In the past they created something called Injection, which they now realize is going to destroy the world and they are the only ones who can stop it. The comics are written from a rolling point of view, so far there are 5 volumes planned and each one is told from a different character’s perspective. I can’t wait!
