Dynamite Entertainment Announces James Robinson's GRAND PASSION

Posted by G-Man (33964 posts) - - Show Bio

James Robinson has teased he has several projects in the works. Looks like another one has been revealed. Dynamite Entertainment is launching their San Diego Comic-Con announcements before the show starts. James will be writing a new series with Dynamite entitled GRAND PASSION.

"I'm thrilled to be working with Nick Barrucci and Dynamite Entertainment on a series I think will surprise a lot of readers," James said. "Grand Passion is definitely a departure from what I've been doing in the last few years. This series is about two wayward characters Doc and Mabel -- one a cop, the other a crook -- who are fated to fall in love at first sight even as Mabel swears she'll kill Doc if it's the last thing she does. It marries elements of a Harlequin romance with hard-boiled crime and takes it off in a direction that's surprising, funny, violent, and sexy. I'm very excited to roll up my sleeves and immerse myself in writing this tale."

No further information has been released, such as artist or release date. We'll have to wait for more details.

I wish he would stick to earth 2. Anybody think Doc and Mabel looks like DC and Marvel?

@allstarsuperman: I don't know about the latter half of that assestment, but I wished he had stayed on Earth 2 as well.

Not the type of thing I'd expect from James Robinson. Curious to learn more.
