The Killer Omnibus Vol. 2 TPB

Writer(s): Matz
Artist(s): Luc Jacamon

The Killer finds himself drawn deeper into international intrigue between Cuba, Venezuela, and the United States, with oil revenues and political independence the stakes. A professional. A man of few scruples, nerves of steel, and a steady trigger finger. A man whose crimes might be catching up with him. A man on the verge of cracking.

Archaia presents The Killer, a hardboiled, noir series chronicling one man’s journey through some seriously bad mojo. After his misadventures in Venezuela, our Killer retires to Mexico, but his Colombian cartel friend Mariano and the Cuban agent Katia are not far behind. Soon he finds himself drawn back into the great geopolitical game between Cuba, Venezuela, and the United States, with oil revenues and political independence the stakes. Even when he finds himself in unusual territory as the shadow owner of an oil company developing Cuba’s off-shore deposits, the need for his usual skill-set is never far away…

An Assassin Returns in Archaia’s The Killer Omnibus Vol. 2

Retirement never lasts for a hired gun. This July, Volumes 3 and 4 of the Eisner Award-nominated series The Killer are collected for the first time ever in the definitive The Killer Omnibus Vol. 2 by Archaia, an imprint of BOOM! Studios. Originally published as a five volume series in France from 1998 to 2003, Le Tueur quickly became known as one of Europe’s grittiest and most hard-boiled comics—a brutal, bloody, and stylish story of a professional assassin lost in a world without a moral compass. The creative team of artist Luc Jacamon and writer Matz continue their story of one assassin’s journey through a world of relentless violence. Though his brief retirement has not dulled his skills or resolve, new jobs will threaten his way of life and the very foundation of his morality.

The Killer Omnibus Vol. 2 softcover collection arrives from Archaia in comic shops on July 23rd with a cover price of $24.99 under Diamond Order Code MAR140977.
