Image Comics is pleased to announce Doug Wagner, Nic Rummel, and Charlie Kirchoff’s new high-energy action series The Hard Place, which will launch this August.

In The Hard Place, readers meet ex-con AJ Gurney, a legendary wheelman in Detroit, who has decided it’s time to go straight. He returns home to work in his father’s garage and disappear into anonymity.


But during a visit to the bank, AJ is recognized by two violent bank robbers, and they demand AJ be their getaway driver. To ensure his compliance, they take a young female hostage; unfortunately, she happens to be the daughter of a Russian crime lord. AJ now finds himself pursued by a bitter police department and hunted by every asset of the Russian mob. Without a doubt, he’s in a very hard place.

“This book is crazy,” said Wagner. “If you’re into high-octane car chases, badass Russian mobsters, and nonstop chaos, The Hard Place delivers all that in spades.”


The Hard Place is a car wreck disguised as a comic book. Readers won’t want to miss a single second of it.

The Hard Place #1 Cover A by Stelfreeze (JUN170668), Cover B by Rummel (JUN170669), and Cover C by Stelfreeze (JUN170670) will launch on Wednesday, August 23rd.
