This seems a long time coming… Back in July of 2013, Rich ran a story about James Robinson (Squadron Supreme, Starman) doing a new book called Grand Passion at Dynamite. Flash forward three years, one month and a week and Dynamite sends out a press release about James Robinson's Grand Passion coming out this November.
At the time there was no artist attached, now we know it will be Tom Feister doing interiors and John Cassaday doing covers.
Doc's a cop. Mabel's a crook. They're two wayward souls, fated to fall in love at first sight… even as Mabel swears to kill Doc if it's the last thing she does. A tale marrying elements of a Harlequin romance and hard-boiled crime. Robinson said of the series:
Something I've noticed lacking in a lot of comics is unbridled romance. The crazy kind when it's all life and death and love at first sight, so combining that with the hard-boiled crime milieu was something that really appealed to me. This is my attempt at doing something equal parts crazy love and crazy violent.
Grand Passion #1 will be in the September 2016 Previews catalog and slated for release in November.
