Garth Ennis's RED TEAM Jumpstarts Dynamite's Crime Line

Garth Ennis and Dynamite have a long happy relationship together. With The Boys they have taken on superheroes in an all-new way, with brutal violence mixed with poignant social commentary (and more brutal violence). Now, as that comes to a close, Ennis starts his next chapter with Dynamite, helping them launch their new Crime line of titles.

In Red Team, Garth Ennis and Dynamite described "up-and-coming artist" Craig Cermak team for this new seven issue limited series that features a Major Crimes task force in the NYPD who make a bad call that leads to lots of drama. The team decides to murder a suspect, and things don't go well after that. Dynamite described the series as "in the tradition of The Wire and The Shield" in a press release.

Cermak said in the press release that he's honored to work with Ennis on a new series. "Dark and moody are what I think some of my strong points are artistically, and that is what this series has. Interesting characters, a great premise, and hard situations. Being able to step into this world is such a treat to draw and I'm pushing to really deliver the quality it deserves."

Dynamite Editor Joe Rybandt, meanwhile, promises that Red Team will continue the tradition of Garth "holding nothing back."

More from Red Team to come at New York Comic Con, as well as more creative announcements for Dynamite's Crime line later this week!
