Not content with bringing Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier to the big screen, the team of Joe and Anthony Russo continue their comic book connections with the newly announced Ciudad, a comic project created with writer Ande Parks.
Described by publisher Oni Press as a “brutally violent, action-packed thriller,” Ciudad follows a mercenary struggling to complete his mission for a drug lord while having to deal with a city filled with police, gang warfare and assassins out to make his life more difficult. Art for the book is provided by Fernando Leon.
