Second Chances Hotline—call now and get a new identity! All you need is some cash, a proper referral, and a very good reason to start over. When Leblanc, the man behind the hotline, is approached by a shady figure from his past, he's forced to accept a new client who doesn't meet any of the requirements—a client with chemically induced amnesia in desperate need of protection. Up-and-coming writer RICKY MAMMONE and artist MAX BERTOLINI (The Witcher, Nathan Never) explode onto the scene with this psychedelic, action-packed, bizarre noir that feels like John Wick punching through an existential French New Wave fever dream.
It always starts with a phone call...
Second Chances kicks off with an intense first issue, and I’m hooked. This is my favorite new comic. Leblanc is the perfect protagonist for this gritty, dark and fast-paced story. His internal dialogue stands out with a cool balance between the character's moral compass, jaded mindset and dry comedic relief during dire and unpredictable circumstances. Writer Ricky Mammone has done a superb job of brining his main character to life and making me want more. Love the black and white artwork by Max Bertolini too, it’s refreshing and just fits the story so well. Can’t wait for #2!
