Official Press Release

"Incognito" #1

The man who killed Captain America was just getting started. As superstar creators Ed Brubaker (Captain America, Daredevil, Uncanny X-Men) and Sean Phillips' (Marvel Zombies) previous genre-twisting series Sleeper heads for the big screen with Sam Raimi and Tom Cruise attached, the team takes a short break from their multiple Eisner Award-winning comic Criminal to launch INCOGNITO, a twisted mash-up of noir and super-heroics.

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 is a project that I've been waiting to do for some time now," said Brubaker. "Where Sean and I previously explored a good guy pretending to be bad and losing sight of the difference, Incognito is the flipside. The story of a bad guy forced to be good, and what happens when he starts to go stir-crazy from the monotony of normal life. It's a dark look at good and evil and pulp and noir all in one hard-hitting package."

INCOGNITO launches in December from Marvel Comics' Icon line, and will continue the tradition begun in Criminal of special features and articles that will only be available in the individual issues.
