roberts_01.jpgShadowline, an imprint of Image Comics, has announced the serial killer series The Roberts will receive the trade paperback treatment in February 2009.

THE ROBERTS reveals the final fate of the infamous Zodiac Killer and The Boston Strangler as they live out their last days in The Shady Lane Retirement Center. While they’ve been able to live their lives anonymously from their fellow retirees, one reveals his long-kept secret to the other and may have no option other than to give in to his instinct to murder. In addition, the fifty pages of extras include Chinsang’s never-before-seen personal correspondences with real life serial killers Richard Ramirez and Charles Manson.

The 144-page trade will sell for $14.99.
