Okay it isn’t a comic, it’s kindle ebook. And it sells for only $2.99. But SEAL TEAM SIX: NO MORE #1: by Doug Murray has sold some 115,000 copies, I’m told. It’s a spin-off of Chuck Dixon’s Seal Team Six novel, also a Dynamite ebook. Here’s the plot:
When Randall ‘Flame’ O’Donnell is forced to leave the SEALs due to a traumatic head injury he received on a mission, he firmly believes his life to be over. Leaving the SEALs is painful and impossible; Flame is certain life cannot only never be the same, but he doesn’t know how to live without them. Facing a lifetime as a nothing but a civilian, Flame finds himself considering things he never thought he would: like joining the private sector and getting a job. But this is no ordinary job. Partnering up with ex-CIA analyst and NSA agent Dana Morton, Flame finds himself reliving his SEAL days by becoming the muscle in an agency that investigates and protects.
People love reading these millitary elite force novels, and good on Dynamite for successfully expanding their product mix.
