What if the U.S. government perfected a broadcast signal that could extinguish criminal thoughts? If you were a grifter with only 10 days before the signal went live, you’d find the crime of the century that you’d been planning suddenly transformed into the last crime in American history—if you can pull it off.

Radical Publishing is proud to announce its newest title for 2009, The Last Days of American Crime. Created and written by fan-favorite comics scribe Rick Remender, the series represents Radical’s first foray into the crime genre. Issue #1 hits the stands later this year, with illustrations by new breakout artist Greg Tocchini.

"The Last Days of American Crime is a story I've been itching to scratch for a few years now,” Remender says. “Fans of my creator-owned books Fear Agent or XXXombies will be right at home with this one. And Greg Tocchini is a powerhouse, one of the best artists I've ever worked with, a true future superstar. Radical is a perfect home for the project, so I'm having a blast."

Radical President and Publisher Barry Levine added, “As a longtime fan of the crime genre, I’m really excited by this. Rick presented me a premise that is so full of suspense and great action that I jumped on board immediately. Besides an amazing story, Greg’s art is just incredible—he’s exactly the kind of great young artist that I love discovering for our books.”

More details on The Last Days of American Crime will be revealed at Radical Publishing’s New York Comic-Con panel on Saturday, Feb. 7, at 5:15 p.m. in Room 1A07.
