From Writer/Producer Of The Wire, A New Comic Book – The Six

7

George Pelecanos wrote for the first season of HBO's The Wire, and was made a producer for the second season, writing and producing for the third before moving to just writer, so he could also concentrate on his novel, The Night Gardner. He also worked on Treme as well as his own show, Bosch.

And now? He has a comic book. The Six, written with Andrew Ewington, best known to me for Com.X's 45, drawn by Mack Chater (The Fuse) and to be published in November by Michael Bay's 451 Media Group.

From master author George Pelecanos, (HBO's The Wire, The Pacific, Treme), comes a searing tale of warfare at its worst and fighting soldiers at their best. When the wife of a former Marine buddy finds herself a target of a vicious Mexican cartel, she ends up turning to her husband's old squad for help. Sergeant James McQuade and five former members of the Five-One Sand Scorpions find themselves outnumbered and outgunned against the most lethal and unpredictable enemy they ever went head-to-head with.  It was someone else's war but it was their fight.  Just the way they like it.
