Radical Publishing Debuts Damaged
Radical Publishing in association with Sam Worthington’s Full Clip Productions is proud to announce the debut of its new series, Damaged, which hits store shelves August 3rd, 2011. This new crime series is created by Michael and John Schwarz of Full Clip Productions, and written by Eisner Award-winner David Lapham (Stray Bullets). Damaged is illustrated by Leonardo Manco (Hellblazer) with cover art by acclaimed artist Alex Maleev.
Damaged tells of the story of two brothers, Frank and Henry Lincoln, long estranged after a violent event in their shared past forces them apart. Over the course of 35 years, the brothers pursue separate paths to enforce justice…. Frank, an upright citizen, becomes a distinguished veteran of the San Francisco police department, while Henry, a hardened vigilante, enforces the sort of justice the law is not allowed to. As the brothers approach retirement, each attempts to train a younger protégé in his image to take on the mafia underworld that corrupts the city by the bay. Sparks fly as the same crime scene and political powers bring the two brothers face to face on different sides of the law.

Damaged sounds like an interesting premise that has lots of possible complications for the main characters; that and the gritty underbelly of the world of crime and vigilante justice. Be on the lookout for this title in August from Radical!
