Who doesn’t love heist movies? They usually have some “team getting together” montage which does character introduction and gives the audience a feel of what the story is about.
One of my favorite movies is The Italian Job, both the original and the remake. Both movies tell an elaborate story and have more than its share of cheeky moments.
These type of stories give their audiences an escapade in a world foreign to most. The type of gusto required to pull off some of these antics is more than the average civilian has.
Which is why when I saw the movie Jumper I was surprised they didn’t try to make it a heist movie. Hayden Christiansen’s character has the power to jump in and out of places miles and even countries apart. The opportunist would ask why didn’t he steal anything? In Christopher Sebela and Chris Visions’ Trust Fall #1, we meet one crime family whose life work for thievery recently has led to some fatal consequences.
We meet Ash Parsons, the mastermind in a family whose main business is crime. We meet her in the middle of a job where she walks in nonchalantly and robs her victims right in front of them without blinking. She escapes the police and joins the family for dinner where we meet an unsavory collection of shady figures. These are the members of Ash’s family as she gathers them there to give them the good news. Her latest heist has them set for life.
Overall, Trust Fall #1 is a nice origin story to this character and the world she commands. The story by Sebela is relatable, funny, and action-packed. The art by the creative team is unique and stellar. Altogether, you’ll love this story if you like crime noir books and love it even more if you always root for the underdog.

BOOM! Studios has revealed a first look at Bury the Lede, a new original graphic novel from New York Times bestselling author Gaby Dunn and artist Claire Roe, with colors by Miquel Rodriguez, which arrives in stores October 2019. Inspired by Dunn’s own experiences as a young reporter at The Boston Globe, Bury the Lede is a thrilling story about a young reporter’s search for truth leading her down a dark path while she goes toe-to-toe with a potential killer.
Cub reporter Madison Jackson is young, scrappy, and hungry to prove that she deserves her coveted college internship at the premier newspaper in town, The Boston Lede, where she dreams of a career-making headline. So when her police scanner mentions a brutal murder tied to a prominent Boston family, Madison races to the crime scene, looking for the scoop of the century. What she finds instead is the woman who’ll change her life forever: Dahlia Kennedy, a celebrity socialite covered in blood and the prime suspect in the murder of her husband and child. When Madison is the only person Dahlia will speak to, everything rides on the untested shoulders of this young journalist who sinks ever deeper into the dark, twisted landscape of the city’s hidden circles of crime, corruption, and privilege in order to unveil the truth.
Bury the Lede will be available for sale on October 2, 2019 at local comic book shops and on sale October 8, 2019 at book stores.
Ash Parsons was raised to believe she’s special. As someone with a quirk of genetics that lets her teleport things, she’s the golden goose of her family.
Her family is the foundation of a struggling criminal outfit trying to get ahead in the world and Ash is able to pop out whole fleets of cars and entire bank vaults. But while she can teleport valuables and her accomplices, she can’t teleport herself — making every job a trust fall with her family there to catch her and escort her to safety. It’s a perfect setup but as things begin to change and the Parsons move up in the world, Ash will find herself pushing back against her golden cage, with deadly results.
Written by Christopher Sebela with art by Chris Visions, Trust Fall #1 is out June 12, 2019 from AfterShock. The first issue features a cover by Visions and a 1:10 incentive cover by Claire Roe.
BOOM! Studios today announced Bury the Lede, a new original graphic novel from New York Times bestselling author Gaby Dunn and artist Claire Roe, which arrives in stores October 2019. Inspired by Dunn’s own experiences at The Boston Globe as a reporter, Bury the Lede is a timely story about how we find answers in an increasingly complex world and the hidden threats surrounding those truths.
Twenty-one-year-old Madison T. Jackson is already the star of the Emerson College student newspaper when she nabs a coveted night internship at Boston’s premiere newspaper, The Boston Lede. The job’s simple: do whatever the senior reporters tell you to do, from fetching coffee to getting a quote from a grieving parent. It’s grueling work, so when the murder of a prominent Boston businessman comes up on the police scanner, Madison races to the scene of the grisly crime. There, Madison meets the woman who will change her life forever: prominent socialite Dahlia Kennedy, who is covered in gore and being arrested for the murder of her family. The newspapers put everyone they can in front of her with no results until, with nothing to lose, Madison gets a chance – and unexpectedly barrels headfirst into danger she never anticipated.
