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 Circle #1
Writer: Brian Reed
Artist: Ian Hosfeld

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.
