WHY WE LOVE IT: Here at BOOM! we love our pop culture history and STEED AND MRS. PEEL, the original Avengers, are a cornerstone of the foundation of modern spy fiction. We’re honored to contribute to a legacy that spans over 50 years! This time, Ian Edginton (HINTERKIND, LEVIATHAN) joins us as our first English writer on the series for epic Spy-Fi action.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: The classic Avengers television show was one of the first British television shows to cross the Atlantic in the mid-1960s. John Steed and Emma Peel were instrumental in forming our view of smart, stylish spy heroes and Edginton will take them on their strangest, most psychedelic adventure yet.
WHAT’S IT ABOUT: When an old associate of John Steed is killed, a grand conspiracy is suspected. This will take Steed and Peel to a strange village, where one of the spies finds themself a prisoner.[/quote]
