The four-issue comic book miniseries known as Hotwire: Requiem for the Dead is being released on April 28th as a trade paperback by Radical Publishing, and we’ve got a look at the cover art and the full synopsis for you.
In the near future the living and the dead share the same space. Known as “Blue Lights,” the dead are mostly harmless, roaming the streets as mindless drones. But when the Blue Lights start showing up as ghostly weapons of mass destruction, Metro Police has only one person for the job: Alice Hotwire, Detective Exorcist. She’s the best there is at reining in the Blue Light beat … and she’s the only one who can save the city from certain destruction.
Written/illustrated by Steve Pugh and based on a story by legendary creator Warren Ellis, the trade paperback is a special “director’s cut” edition that includes creator notes and early character designs that evolved into the Hotwire: Requiem for the Dead series. It further contains newly remastered tales from Alice Hotwire’s past, featuring never-before-seen pages written by Warren Ellis (Planetary, Transmetropolitan) and amazing newly painted artwork. Also included is an extensive gallery showcasing the evolution of the Alice Hotwire character, a spotlight gallery of artwork from celebrated artists Steve Pugh, Stjepan Sejic (Witchblade), Jelena Kevic Djurdjevic (The Immortal Iron Fist), and Garry Leach (Judge Dredd, Marvelman) as well as an in-depth interview with co-creator Steve Pugh.
