SECRET IDENTITIES SERIES UNMASKED
An all-new superhero series by Faerber and Joines takes flight
Last week I asked Is Image Teasing A New Super Team? Image had been teasing us with images and descriptions of new heroes and I proposed that they could be the members of a new superhero team; well today Image made the official announcement that fan favorite writers Brian Joines (KRAMPUS!, Noble Causes) and Jay Faerber (COPPERHEAD, GRAVEYARD SHIFT) team up with artists Ilias Kyriazis (Blood Opera, Manifesto) and Charlie Kirchoff (Doctor Who) to introduce readers to their new favorite supergroup, The Front Line (Not Related), in SECRET IDENTITIES—coming from Image Comics this February.
In SECRET IDENTITIES #1, the supergroup known as The Front Line has just invited the new hero Crosswind to join them. But what they don't know is that Crosswind is a mole, sent to learn all their secrets. And the Front Line has LOTS of secrets…
"Brian and I have been friends for a long time, and one of our common interests is super-heroes. So it only made sense that our first writing collaboration would be on a project like this. And Ilias' art is explodes off the page, mixing a classic super-hero style with an alternative sensibility."
- Jay Faerber
"It's great to be dipping my toe into super-hero waters. And to be doing it with someone with a track record like Jay is a true thrill. On top of that, watching Ilias bring these characters, some of whom have been warming the bench in my head for a very long time, to life with such vibrant style and energy… absolutely amazing."
- Brian Joines
While issue #1 introduces Crosswind as a traitor, what readers won’t know is what form his betrayal will take. When will he turn on the team? How will he do it? While he bides his time gaining their trust, he must also learn to act like a hero. Is there a chance that acting like a hero will actually turn him into one?
SECRET IDENTITIES #1 lands in stores on 2/18 and can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code DEC140617.
