Action Lab Unearths Gravedigger
Before Brubaker and Phillips did Criminal… Before Darwyn Cooke adapted Donald Westlake…there was “Digger.” Gravedigger by Christopher Mills and Rick Burchett has been hailed as a modern classic by critics and fans alike and now, the comic has found a new home with Action Lab‘s mature readers imprint, Danger Zone.
“The Predators” is a three-issue mini series that contains everything readers love in crime comics; hard-boiled action, gorgeous femme fatales, and a hero who’s a bit of a bastard. It’s not always easy being the bad guy, as career criminal “Gravedigger” McCrae knows all too well. Even with a .9mm automatic in his hand and a wealth of experience under his belt, the veteran thief still finds himself in deadly trouble when his well-laid plans go violently off the rails in a pair of violent, pulp fiction capers.
Gravedigger is a master class in hard-boiled comic action!
Issue One of Gravedigger is available for preorder now, and hits comic stands this July. Created and written by Chris Mills, the book is illustrated by multiple Eisner Award-winning artist Rick Burchett and comes with a limited edition variant cover by Dario Carrasco.
