Palmiotti and Brady’s The Big Con Job #1 (of 4)
Authors: Jimmy Palmiotti & Matt Brady
Artist: Dominike “Domo” Stanton
WHY WE LOVE IT: Comics veteran Jimmy Palmiotti (Harley Quinn) is a master at crafting humorous, snarky comics, and he’s teamed up with longtime comics journalist-turned-writer Matt Brady (Buck Rogers) and artist Dominike “Domo” Stanton (Deadpool) for a unique heist story. They’ve put the “con” back in comic conventions.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: In the mood for a character-driven, comic book convention crime caper? Palmiotti and Brady have crafted a Galaxy Quest meets Ocean’s 11-style crime story set in the larger-than-life backdrop of the modern convention circuit. You thought cons couldn’t get any bigger? You have no idea.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: After working the same convention circuit for many years, a group of flabby action heroes, aging sex symbols, and sci-fi bit players have become close friends as they watch their lines get shorter and their autographs get cheaper. That is, until they hire a cocky new booking agent who offers them their only chance at a comfortable retirement by robbing one of the largest cons in the country!
