Action Lab: Danger Zone has announced the upcoming release of Burning Rubber, a hard-boiled ‘Nordic noir’ one-shot that tells its high octane crime story from the perspective of a getaway driver who is unknowingly stealing drug money from the Russian mob and from the perspective of the outlaw biker who is guarding the money. Check out a preview here…
“I’m a Nordic writer and I come from a Nordic Noir background that is hugely popular on novels and TV series like the Millennium trilogy, The Bridge and Sorjonen,” states writer Hannu Kesola. “Unfortunately, there aren’t many Nordic writers in the US comic market, so I try to bring a Nordic take on crime comics where stories are dark and morally complex. I hope that Burning Rubber will be a fresh title in the comic bookshelves. And because it’s a one-shot comics’ readers will get to read the whole story in one read.”
“Comic books have always been the form of entertainment that I enjoy the most. When I became a comic book creator, my main goal has always been to keep readers entertained. That is what I hope my readers will get; entertainment for their money on every page of Burning Rubber. We have all made bad decisions in our lives that have affected us one way or another. With the story of Burning Rubber, I tried to explore how the little bad decisions that people make can sometimes have really dramatic impacts on their lives. I believe that it is something we can relate to in our own way when reading Burning Rubber.”
Burning Rubber will go on sale in April 2020.
