On The Shelf: @ImageComics Release Their KINGSMAN: THE RED DIAMOND #1 variants

Mark Millar (KICK-ASS, REBORN, JUPITER’S LEGACY) unveils previously unseen KINGSMAN: THE RED DIAMOND #1 variants by superstar artist Frank Quitely (All-Star Superman, Batman & Robin).

Frank Quitely’s variants join covers by original Kingsman creator Dave Gibbons (Watchmen), Simon Fraser, and Rob Doyle to launch new series KINGSMAN: THE RED DIAMOND from Image Comics on Wednesday, September 6th—just in time for this summer’s biggest blockbuster, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, to hit cinemas.

The new series sees brand-new creative team Rob Williams (Suicide Squad) and British superstar Simon Fraser take the helm for an international spy adventure, one that kicks off where James Bond draws the line.

Hero Eggsy is still not-quite-Bond, still rough-around-the-edges, still trying to be the suave gentleman he was trained to be. We follow him on an international spy mission to save the world from The Red Diamond, a villain hell-bent on plunging society into chaos. Eggsy’s also up against the villain’s lethal hunchback henchman (hunchman?!) Ingot, and out to woo badass South African agent Kwaito while he’s at it.

Cue riots, explosions, and plenty of old school Kingsman violence.

KINGSMAN: THE RED DIAMOND is the sequel to KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE by Mark Millar, Dave Gibbons, and Matthew Vaughn. KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE is the critically acclaimed comic book series by Kick-Asswriter Mark Millar, Watchmen‘s Dave Gibbons and director Matthew Vaughn. Now a Hollywood blockbuster starring Colin Firth and Taron Egerton, KINGSMAN reinvents the spy genre for the 21st century. The story follows a British secret agent who takes his wayward nephew under his wing and trains him to become a gentleman spy. Together, they uncover a plot that links kidnapped celebrities with a plot to eradicate 90% of the human race!

KINGSMAN: THE RED DIAMOND #1 will be ON THE SHELF Wednesday, September 6th. Will you be picking up a copy? You can get your copy HERE.
