Human Target: A New DC BLACK LABEL SERIES By Tom King and Greg Smallwood
Can the DC Universe’s Greatest Bodyguard Solve His Own Murder?
12-Issue Limited Series Debuts November 2, 2021
Best-selling writer Tom King clearly has the magic touch when it comes to plunging into the depths of the DC Universe and recreating characters for a new generation of readers, with titles like The Omega Men, Mister Miracle, Rorschach, and Strange Adventures on his portfolio. Human Target, a 12-issue limited series based on the character co-created by Len Wein and Carmine Infantino, debuts on November 2nd, as King and artist Greg Smallwood create a new history for DC’s deadliest bodyguard.
Christopher Chance has established a living as a human target—a man paid to impersonate a client in order to entice would-be assassins to try his assassination. He’d had a wonderful career up until his most recent case, in which he was defending Lex Luthor when everything went wrong. Chance is left defenseless after an assassination attempt he didn’t see coming, and he’s left to solve his own murder…with only 12 days to figure out who in the DC Universe hates Luthor enough to want him dead. In this DC BLACK LABEL series from two of comics’ most recognized talents, the DC Universe collides with gritty detective noir!
