THE COLDEST CITY, a new spy thriller graphic novel by Antony Johnston and artist Sam Hart, is now available for pre-order, to be published in May.
It’s set in West Berlin during the last days of the Cold War, and follows in the footsteps of classic espionage fiction like John Le Carré’s Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Ian Mackintosh’s The Sandbaggers, and Len Deighton’s Harry Palmer novels.
As Communism collapses and the Berlin Wall crumbles, an undercover MI6 spy is killed while carrying priceless information — a list containing the name of every spy in Berlin.
But no list is found on his body.
MI6 sends veteran MI6 officer Lorraine Broughton to recover the list. But she walks into a powderkeg of social unrest, counter-espionage, defections gone bad, and secret assassinations…
THE COLDEST CITY is a brand new spy thriller from author Antony Johnston (Wasteland, Queen & Country: Declassified, Daredevil) and artist Sam Hart (Judge Dredd, Excalibur: The Legend of King Arthur) that revitalizes classic espionage fiction and revels in the paranoia and mistrust boiling over at the epicenter of the Cold War.
THE COLDEST CITY is the first in a planned series of connected books with the second, DEAD OF WINTER in the works already.
