That’s until Talia al Ghul shows up on her doorstep with a job to take down Leviathan, a new villain coming to the DC Universe. For movie fans, it’s The Long Kiss Goodnight meets John Wick.
The entire run will be priced at $2.99, every issue will have the same cover and for the first time ever, three-fold vertically folding covers.
Issue #1 DC Synopsis:
“CODE OF HONOR” part one! She’s one of the DC Universe’s deadliest assassins…and you’ve never heard of her. Super-strong, highly trained, armed with devastating and stealthy meta-human abilities, the Silencer is virtually invincible. Or at least she was. After decades as Leviathan’s chief assassin, Honor Guest put in her time and managed to get out with her skin intact. Now she lives a normal life with a normal family in a normal house on a normal street. But the past has come back to haunt her in the form of her old employer and a deadly new mission…and Talia Al Ghul won’t take no for an answer.
