SPY SEAL GETS A SLICK PAPERBACK THIS JANUARY
Collecting issues #1-4 in an oversized deluxe format
PORTLAND, OR, 11/30/2017 — Critically acclaimed cartoonist Rich Tommaso (SHE WOLF, DARK CORRIDOR) will release a trade paperback collection of his espionage tale SPY SEAL this January.
Visually reminiscent of such classic comics as The Adventures of Tintin and Usagi Yojimbo, SPY SEAL welcomes readers into the thrilling world of international espionage.
One of Britain’s most covert MI-6 divisions, the Nest, has recruited a brand-new secret agent to their team: Spy Seal! Follow the newbie spy and his furred and feathered colleagues on exciting train rides, high-speed car chases, high-flying air adventures, and down secret underground tunnels, all in an effort to hunt down a dangerous British-turned-Soviet double agent—a slippery spy who poses as an upscale art dealer while covertly killing off important figures of Parliament.
SPY SEAL, VOL. 1 (Diamond code: NOV170686, ISBN: 978-1-5343-0479-6) hits comic book stores Wednesday, January 24th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, December 11th.

“If you’re looking for a comic that’s classic fun with just a hint of edge, SPY SEAL is the book.” —Monkeys Fighting Robots
“SPY SEAL [is placed firmly] in a milieu of fun and levity, and it reads like a throwback to a bygone era of uncomplicated, direct storytelling. It’s fun in a way so few comics these days are, and that offers readers a particular satisfaction.” —AV Club
“The boldness in SPY SEAL’s earnest commitment to its world and its sense of style, aped from the classic adventure comics we read as children, speaks to its strength, no matter how loopy its premise is. SPY SEAL just goes with it, with all the grace and simplicity of its own title. And because if it, it’s one of the most charming and delightful new comics I’ve read in a while.” —iO9
“Rich and completely original, you won’t find a book like SPY SEAL anywhere else on the stands.” —Uproxx
“You rarely find a creator who writes, draws, colors, and letters their work and I commend Tommaso for all his work on SPY SEAL. The art is beautiful. It’s this slick, seemingly simplistic work that provides this clean look to it all.” —Comicosity
“[SPY SEAL] may rightfully deserve a place alongside some of the more iconic series to which it pays homage.” —Multiversity Comics
