Ahead of its cinematic release on 21st August, BOOM! Studios have released a free prequel comic for the upcoming Hitman: Agent 47 movie.

The comic, written by F.J. DeSanto with artwork by Jesus Hervas, sets the scene perfectly for the movie as we see our titular agent in full swing, carrying out a mission with his typical ruthless efficiency.

While there isn’t necessarily a huge amount of storyline detail revealed, the tone of the comic meshes beautifully with the world of the IO Interactive video game series, and Hervas’ thick-lined, heavily-inked artwork goes a long way towards capturing the dynamic, fast-moving nature of the story that will hopefully survive the translation well to the big screen.

DIRECTOR: Aleksander Bach
SCREENPLAY: Skip Woods and Michael Finch
PRODUCERS: Charles Gordon, Adrian Askarieh, Alex Young, Skip Woods

SYNOPSIS: HITMAN: AGENT 47 centers on an elite assassin who was genetically engineered from conception to be the perfect killing machine, and is known only by the last two digits on the barcode tattooed on the back of his neck. He is the culmination of decades of research – and forty-six earlier Agent clones — endowing him with unprecedented strength, speed, stamina and intelligence. His latest target is a mega-corporation that plans to unlock the secret of Agent 47’s past to create an army of killers whose powers surpass even his own. Teaming up with a young woman who may hold the secret to overcoming their powerful and clandestine enemies, 47 confronts stunning revelations about his own origins and squares off in an epic battle with his deadliest foe.
