The Raid – wow, what a mind blowing movie. If you haven’t seen it, you should, as it follows a SWAT team’s raid on a mobsters apartment complex that has been turned into a fortress. The Raid has some of the best martial arts action sequences in modern times, and now the movie, directed by Gareth Evans, is getting the comic book treatment.
“At Titan we’re thrilled to be publishing The Raid comic books,” said editor Martin Eden in a statement to the press. “Gareth is a visionary and a huge talent. It’s a pleasure to work with him on developing his characters for the comic book page. We promise to deliver the same thrilling, fifth-gear adrenaline that fans have come to expect from the franchise.”
The Raid comic book is scheduled to arrive in stores in late 2016.
