The preview of Marvel’s December solicitations contains a nice surprise: Incognito #1, the debut of another creator-owned series by the Criminal team of Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips — one that stirs fond memories of their late, lamented Sleeper:
What if you were an ex-super villain hiding out in Witness Protection… but all you could think about were the days when the rules didn’t apply to you? Could you stand the toil of an average life after years of leaving destruction in your wake? And what if you couldn’t stand it? What would you do then?
INCOGNITO – a twisted mash-up of noir and super-heroics – by best-selling creators Ed Brubaker (The Death of Captain America) and Sean Phillips (Marvel Zombies) with Val Staples on colors.
On his blog, Phillips kindly posts the full wraparound cover for the first issue. Like Criminal, each issue of Incognito will include back matter with articles and behind-the-scenes glimpses.
