Fabrice Sapolsky And Ariel Olivetti's One-Hit Wonder Makes It To America, With Image Comics In February

STK631979Originally planned to be published in the USA and France simultaneously by Indeez Urban Editions, One Hit Wonder by Fabrice Sapolsky and Ariel Olivetti, is to be published in English by Image Comics in February,

The comic was previewed at this year's Angouleme Comic Festival in France, and was published this summer in French as "Hollywood Killer", but never made it to the US shelves.

Looks like that's all changing now. This is what they said at the time;

"There used to be a thin line between fiction and reality. I tore this line apart for good." — Richie Reese.

His name was on every lips. His face was printed on cereal boxes. He was destined for stardom. But everything fell apart. He couldn't get over his own success and became a One Hit Wonder. So Richie Reese grew up an angry man. He only found solace in violence and killing. Recruited by the Mafia, he became the best at what he does. Using his network in Hollywood, he turned out to be the ultimate hitman. But he needed something else. Being recognized by his peers as an artist, an actor. This is when things started to get ugly. This is where our story begins…

And this is what they say now;

If there was a thin line between reality and fiction, Richie Reese tore it down. Better, he crushed it. Smashed it. Destroyed it. From child star to hitman in Hollywood, this is the story of a glorious bastard.

Written by FABRICE SAPOLSKY (Spider-Man Noir) and drawn by superstar artist ARIEL OLIVETTI (Cable, Punisher War Journal, Conan), this is the crime comedy series you don't want to miss this year.
