ANNA MERCURY #1

Writer: Warren Ellis

Art: Facundo Percio

Readership: MR

Format: Full Color, 32 pages, monthly, 1 of 5

Warren Ellis introduces you to the sultry Anna Mercury in this all-new color series! Dancing amid the spires of a city called New Ataraxia, there is a woman who can cloud men's minds, leap across buildings as if weightless, unerringly fire twin automatic pistols in the most insane conditions, and disappear in a crowded room. She fights against the political repression of an insane technocratic society, and she comes from a place that no-one in New Ataraxia has ever heard of. And she's got one hour to save the city from itself.

A high-octane blend of The Shadow, Tomb Raider, retropunk science fiction and 21st century Weird Pulp Action, ANNA MERCURY is a headlong adventure serial about a beautiful and mysterious spy-adventurer who is not what she seems.... Anna Mercury will be a series of mini-series, starting with this five issue color series that features art by all-new talent Facundo Percio.

This issue is available with a regular cover by Paul Duffield, a wraparound by Juan Jose Ryp, a Painted cover by artist Felipe Massafera, and also a rare 1-in-15 Design Sketch Edition featuring the initial character designs by Ryp.
