To be a bastard. To not know even your father. Or your artist.
We know it's out for the summer. We know what it's about,
Jimmy Regent is Britain's number one super spy, a devastatingly handsome secret agent with a license to kill and style to match. Sailing effortlessly through mission after mission with wit and panache, defying danger again and again, Jimmy always triumphs and always gets the girl- gets rather a lot of girls, actually. But now a new and particularly dangerous secret organization has arisen, their sights fixed firmly on Jimmy's head. Two hundred young men and women in ultimate physical condition, trained in all the arts of deception and death, each bearing a curious facial resemblance to… Jimmy? Every one united with one terrible aim: Get Daddy.
The publisher also promises new books for 2017 from John Layman and Sam Keith, Frank Tieri, Jeff Loveness, Adam Glass and Justin Jordan.
Bit as for the artist of Jimmy's Bastards? He or she will have to remain unknown… for now.
