A new book that’s been in the making for quite some time is hitting our local shops stands this week.
I originally read the solicitation for this book and it really didn’t catch my attention at first. Then I was given an advance review copy of Gunning for Hits coming out from Image Comics and from Jeff Rougvie, with art by Moritat.
From the Image solicitation description:
SERIES PREMIERE! Set in the shady New York City music scene of the mid-80s, GUNNING FOR HITS stars Martin Mills, a record company talent scout with an inscrutable past. Follow Martin as he attempts to sign a rock band that’ll conquer the world in this music business crime thriller written by music producer JEFF ROUGVIE (David Bowie, Big Star) with art by MORITAT (The Spirit, Harley Quinn, Hellblazer). Plus: each issue will include a background feature and a Spotify playlist.
I surprisingly enjoyed this first issue way more than I anticipated, since I really didn’t have any expectations. Gunning for Hits is just a cleverly written book and I’m highly anticipating the next issue after reading the first.
Here’s your sneak peak.
