The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo: Millennium #1

 

Titan Comics’ Hard Case imprint will soon be releasing a new wave of their gritty/adult/mature themed books, and kicking off the latest salvo will be a fresh look at the Stieg Larsson novel, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

 

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo: Millennium will have a fresh translation of the original prose novel from Rachel Zerner; be written for the comic page by Sylvain Runberg, and illustrated by Jose Homs & Man.  This will have no connection to the Graphic Novels written by Denise Mina & illustrated by Andrea Mutti & Leonardo Manco that were published by Vertigo/DC back in 2012, other than obviously the original source material.

 

Issue 1 will launch June 28th at a massive 64 pages for $5.99.  For those unfamiliar with Titan Comics’ print works, their paper and ink qualities generally far surpass those of the more known publishers, making that price point a very attractive price for a triple sized issue.

 

Facing prison time for libel, discredited journalist Mikael Blomkvist is hired by a a reclusive industrialist to investigate an unresolved family disappearance. Aided by the mysterious computer hacker, Lisabeth Salander, the two soon discover a brutal trail of murder, deception and dark secrets

 

Check out below to see the first look at some of the absolutely amazing interior art for the upcoming premiere issue, as well as a look at one of the covers that will be available. (more to come)  Also included is the official press release from Titan.

 

*THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO FRONTS TITAN COMICS’ NEW HARD CASE CRIME WAVE!

TITAN COMICS EXPLORES CRIME AND CORRUPTION WITH NEW TITLES INCLUDING MILLENNIUM: THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, NORMANDY GOLD FROM MEGAN ABBOTT AND ALLISON GAYLIN, AND MAX ALLAN COLLINS’ QUARRY!

The first shots fired in Titan Comics’ Hard Case Crime comics line were PEEPLAND, TRIGGERMAN and THE ASSIGNMENT, bringing Hard Case Crime’s gritty, sexy and violent world to life on the comic page. Now, the publishers reload to release three new titles – QUARRY, NORMANDY GOLD and MILLENIUM: THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO.

Hard Case Crime is the leading publisher of hardboiled crime novels, publishing the giants in the genre, including Stephen King, Michael Crichton, Mickey Spillane, Lawrence Block, Ed McBain, Donald E. Westlake, James M. Cain and Max Allan Collins, whose best-selling QUARRY series was adapted for TV by Cinemax in 2016 to rave reviews. This year, QUARRY makes the leap to comics for the first time ever in an all-new series titled “Quarry’s War,” penned by Collins, whose other work includes Batman, Dick Tracy, Ms. Tree, and the groundbreaking graphic novel Road to Perdition, which inspired the Academy Award-winning film starring Tom Hanks and Paul Newman.

Set in the 1970s, “Quarry’s War” will give readers their first detailed look at Quarry’s time as a sniper in Vietnam – and the deadly crisis he faces when figures from his past reappear after he comes home.

Presenting a new vision of the worldwide bestselling Millennium novels by Stieg Larsson, THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO is a serialized comic book adaptation of Lisbeth Salander’s harrowing story published in English for the first time. Written by Sylvain Runberg (Orbital) and illustrated by José Homs (L’Angélus) and Man, with an all-new translation by Rachel Zerner, THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO tells a story of violence and cruelty, family secrets and international intrigue, with deception and betrayal coiling around each corner.

Facing prison time for slander, discredited journalist Mikael Blomkvist is hired by a reclusive industrialist to investigate a decades-old family disappearance. Aided by the mysterious computer hacker Lisbeth Salander, the two soon discover a brutal trail of murder and deception leading right up to the present day*
