A gritty countdown crime thriller in modern-day Philadelphia, Breakneck is an all-new suspense comic from celebrated crime and comics author Duane Swierczynski (Deadpool, The Punisher, Severance Package, The Wheelman)!

The story starts in a double-size first issue!

When white-collar everyman Joe Hayward tries to confront the government agent sleeping with his wife, he's plunged headfirst into a terrorist plot that will bring Philadelphia to its knees! With just two hours before everyone dies, Joe will need all the help he can get –including his wife's lover!

A perfect thriller for fans of 24, Homeland, and Falling Down, illustrated with every seedy detail by Simone Guglielmini (Near Death), Raffaele Semeraro (Zombie With A Shotgun), and Lovern Kindzierski (Hellblazer, Animal Man).



Reviews

Twisty, seedy, pulpy, luridly entertaining… This is gold, given an extra edge of fun by Swierczynski’s wry, punchy script. 9 out of 10!

Newsarama

Definitely worth checking out. What starts out as a simple revenge beating of his wife’s lover goes extremely sideways – the creative team does not disappoint. 9 out of 10!
