Image Comics has announced writer Brian Reed and artist Ian Hosfeld will be launching their first creator-owned book, The Circle, this November.
“It’s in the vein of the classic TV show Mission: Impossible, or The Man From U.N.C.L.E., and somewhat inspired by the fantastic long running comic strip Modesty Blaise,” said Reed in a prepared statement. “The Circle is a group of freedom fighters that first formed amidst the horrible civil wars in the Baltics during the late 1990’s, and today operate as guns for hire.”

The first story arc, “The Goliath Trap” follows a stringer for M16 after stumbling into a continent spanning battle between The Circle and a rogue CIA assassin over a stolen nuclear missile train code-named ‘Goliath’.
The Circle #1 looks like a lot of fun, and arrives November 14 for $2.99.
