"Meet Emma London: recovery artist and bounty hunter for hire. She is strong, possibly indomitable, and did we mention...part machine.
Emma is the type that dives head first into things that most wouldn’t and shouldn’t. Those dark places that no one else will go to track down the subhuman criminals lurking in the underbelly of society and brings them to justice. STAINED first comes to life with Emma trying to take down a pair of international diamond smugglers. Emma's story explodes forward when initially what was thought to be a hunt for priceless painting with a record high bounty, leads her to something darker and more monstrous than she could have ever imagined."Stained looks like it might give Masamune Shirow's classic Ghost in the Shell a run for its money. The book has definitely nailed the cyberpunk dystopian future tone properly. It's also got action, its got violence, and its got a whole lot of a Blade Runner feel to it- which is always a good thing. It means the book is being handled right.
And it doesn't hurt that the trailer is spectacularly done for a comic book! Seriously, 451 Entertainment has yet to have a dud of a comic. Every single series they've published is great, and this is just one more to add to that number.
Stained #1 hits store shelves on May 3rd.
