IDW’s Black Crown imprint heads undercover for their latest limited series — Eve Stranger, the story of “a formidable young woman with unnatural abilities and a repeatedly wiped memory, available to the highest bidder under the threat of exploding nanobombs in her bloodstream.” Kind of like AEon Flux meets the Suicide Squad.
“Imagine if you were the best in the world at pretty much everything. Super-spy. Assassin. International rescue. The jobs nobody else can — or is willing to — take on. Now imagine if you couldn’t even remember that you saved the world last week, and that you have to do it all again today… or you’ll die. Welcome to the world of Eve Stranger,” said co-creator and writer David Barnett.
Barnett is the writer of another Black Crown project, Punks Not Dead as well as a novelist and journalist. He’s teaming with Kill Your Boyfriend, Vimanarama and The Invisibles artist Philip Bond on this.
“Eve is an amnesiac-for-hire, the ultimate in discretion. For the right price she can be your babysitter or personal shopper, your scuba treasure hunter or space station saboteur,” Bond said.
