James (Squadron Supreme, Scarlet Witch, Starman) Robinson has a pretty amazing ccomics career already under his belt, but he’s still at it, with Grand Passion, a new creator owned series from Dynamite coming this November.
The book was announced a whiel ago, but it’s jsut been revealed that Tom Feister (the Eisner Award-nominated inker of Ex Machina) will draw the interiors and John Cassaday (Star Wars, Uncanny Avengers) will do covers. And here’s the logline:
Doc’s a cop. Mabel’s a crook. They’re two wayward souls, fated to fall in love at first sight… even as Mabel swears to kill Doc if it’s the last thing she does. A tale as only James Robinson could deliver, marrying elements of a Harlequin romance and hard-boiled crime.
“Something I’ve noticed lacking in a lot of comics is unbridled romance,” says writer James Robinson. “The crazy kind when it’s all life and death and love at first sight, so combining that with the hard-boiled crime milieu was something that really appealed to me. This is my attempt at doing something equal parts crazy love and crazy violent.”
“I’ve been a fan of James Robinson since I picked up the ashcan Zero issue of Starman” says series artist Tom Feister. “The opportunity to tell one of his stories on my first time out as an interior artist has been wonderfully terrifying.”
