SHOOTERS, VAMPIRELLA, and RED SONJA out this week...

It appears we're on the verge of another "Trautpocalypse"—several projects I wrote or co-wrote hit store shelves this Wednesday.

First and foremost, Shooters finally arrives! It's been a long, painful journey to get here, but I'm pleased at the final outcome (and about the advance praise the book has already garnered). 

 

SHOOTERS

Written by: Eric Trautmann and Brandon Jerwa

Art and Cover by: Steve Lieber

 

Shooters is an original graphic novel, published by DC Comics' imprint, Vertigo (home of such acclaimed graphic novels as PreacherTransmetropolitanSandman, The Road to Perdition and many others). 

 

The book follows the career of Terry Glass — a Chief Warrant Officer in the United States Army, and a well-trained Special Forces operator — during the early days of America's post-9/11 military actions in Iraq. 

 

While in Iraq, Glass' faces the creeping boredom of the infantryman, the adrenaline-charged terror of direct confrontation with the enemy, and finally, a shattering accident that leaves him both physically and emotionally scarred. 

 

And that is merely the starting point of Glass' journey. 

 

There's more than IEDs, enemy insurgents, and bullets to face. Recovering from terrible injuries, Glass faces his own private demons, the ruins of his marriage, and the moral uncertainties of life as a private military contractor.

 

Vertigo  |  144pg.  |  B&W  |  Hardcover  | Mature Readers  |  $22.9US
