announced today that DAMNED, the cult classic tale of honor, temptation,
and betrayal among thieves and killers by writer Steven Grant and artist
Mike Zeck will be collected this summer.
"We wanted to cut loose with something that didn't have to pay lip
service to superheroes," said Grant, "and do a totally character-driven
crime story capable of any twist or turn. It's Mike's tour-de-force,
and though we've discussed a trade paperback edition with other

"DAMNED is one of, if not the best crime comic of the past ten years. It
is unabashedly violent, brutal, and riveting, crammed full of the

comics, Grant and Zeck rose the bar. I'm proud to be adding DAMNED to
our growing library of high-quality graphic novels."
DAMNED, a full-color, 112 page trade paperback, will be available this
August and will retail for $19.95. In addition to collecting the
original mini-series for the first time, the book will also have a new
cover and a six-page coda done specially for this volume, as well as
behind-the-scenes material from the creators.
