Created by John Wagner, Alan Grant and Carlos Ezquerra for the legendary 2000 AD strip Strontium Dog, DURHAM RED returns in a new solo series BORN BAD by me with art by Ben Willsher (Judge Dredd, Doctor Who).
This eight-part series sees the mutant vampire bounty hunter struggling for work following the closure of the Search/Destroy Agency. Forced to take on whatever job may come her way, Durham is hired by a dying gangster to track down his long-lost mother – a woman prepared to take deadly measures to cover her tracks.
Now here’s the thing, guys... This is a BRAND-NEW take on Durham!
New direction! New costume! New readers welcome!
But fear not, old-schoolers, I’ve been working on this for the best part of a year – and been gearing up for even longer to take a shot at writing this. In that time, me and Ben have been working our buns off in terms of research, getting the re-design just right, figuring out what makes Durham tick and seeing where we can take her next.
Rest assured, we’ve done our homework.
I’ve seen the artwork for the opening episode and it’s unlike anything I’ve seen Ben produce before. No hyperbole here, but it’s freakin’ amazing! I can’t wait to give you a sneak peak...
Anyway, the first part of DURHAM RED: BORN BAD will be published in 2000 AD #2073, available in stores and online from 21st March 2018.
There will be blood...
