Locked up for a life of murder, Roy Nash never thought he'd walk the mean streets of Chicago again... let alone rescue his beloved, Lena. But when the city's Mafia elite spring the notorious gun-for-hire to handle one last assignment, Roy once again finds himself thrown headfirst into a life of bloodshed and bullets as he sprints a breathless race to save the girl he left behind.

From legendary screenwriter and director Walter Hill (The Warriors, Red Heat, Last Man Standing) and French comics Matz, comes this hardboiled crime thriller set in the bullet-ridden streets of 1930s Chicago.

    Triggerman #1 is a beautiful book, with an enigmatic protagonist caught in the web of someone else's game. This first issue delivers on several levels, and it portends well for future series from Titan's Hard Case imprint. Read Full Review

    Triggerman #1 is a superb jumping off point in a new direction for those comics readers who are looking for something other than the superhero or zombie stories that are so saturated in today's market. If you like mysteries, especially the hard boiled crime novels and movies from the Film Noir era (and the books that inspired them), please give this new title coming to us from Titan a try. You will not be disappointed. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Bob Bretall Oct 11, 2016

    It's great to see a crime story like this in comics format. There are too few with the hard edge shown here. This is definitely a 'mature readers' story: It contains language, violence, and nudity" though all fit with the story, given the genre, and didn't feel particularly gratuitous. Titan pairing up with Hard Case Crime is a welcome addition to the comics landscape. Read Full Review
