So What Exactly is Jimmie Robinson’s Five Weapons?
We have seen the teasers…so what is The Five Weapons?
Image Comics sent out a press release today, shedding light on the Jimmie Robinson written and drawn project, as well as provided sneak peeks at the first three covers!
Comics/Shadowline mini-series by Jimmie Robinson (BOMB QUEEN), FIVE WEAPONS, students train in the martial arts, pledging their loyalty to one “club”: Knives, Staves, Archery, Exotics, and Guns.
The School of Five Weapons is turned upside down when a new student arrives, one carrying a name that all the students and teachers know: Shainline. The clubs vie for Tyler’s loyalty, but it becomes apparent very quickly that this kid isn’t someone who is easy to pin down. Tyler has just the edge he needs to succeed at Five Weapons — a razor-sharp mind!
Robinson writes and draws FIVE WEAPONS, and his clean, lively art is colored by Paul Little. The mini-series has the same mischievous tone as Robinson’s series BOMB QUEEN but was created for a wider audience, as the “T” (teen) rating indicates.
“I wanted fun with an edge, but I also wanted Five Weapons to be smart and challenge the reader,” said Robinson. “While there are plenty of weapons to be found in the pages, there is also an invisible sixth weapon between the panels: the skill of the human mind.”
