Vault Comics to Publish Alien Bounty Hunter from Producers Mark Wahlberg and Stephen Levinson
Vault Comics will publish the new comic series, Alien Bounty Hunter, produced by Mark Wahlberg and Stephen Levinson, and created by Levinson. Alien Bounty Hunter will debut with a show-exclusive cover at Comic Con International in July 2017, followed by a monthly series to be available through Diamond Comics Distributors.
In Alien Bounty Hunter, Ben Madsen is tasked with apprehending a wanted fugitive…but quickly learns that his target is not of this world. Madsen must track his mark through an alien enclave populated by the galaxy’s most dangerous aliens—right here on Earth.
With Alien Bounty Hunter, Wahlberg and longtime producing partner Stephen Levinson —known for Boardwalk Empire, Ballers, and most recently Shooter—will expand into science fiction. They hope to translate the property to a wide range of media. Leverage Executive, Spencer Strasmore, oversees development of the project.
On the comic end, award-winning writer Adrian F. Wassel and David M. Booher have penned scripts from a story by Levinson and F.J. DeSanto. Nick Robles will provide art, with letters by Deron Bennet.
