Keanu Reeves’s John Wick has revved up fans of action movies in both John Wick and the sequel John Wick: Chapter 2. Dynamite Comics is taking fans of the movie series back to the origins of the character in a new comic book series arriving at comic book stores today. John Wick: Book of Rules, Part One, is created by writer Greg Pak (Planet Hulk) and artist Giovanni Valletta (Dark Horse Presents).
When a young John Wick emerges from prison and embarks upon his first, epic vendetta, he comes up against a strange, powerful community of assassins and must learn how to master the Book of Rules that guides their lethal business. What are the Three Bills? Who is Calamity? And who was John Wick before he became the Baba Yaga?
Issue #1 delves right in, offering a look at Wick in two pasts, with tight writing by Greg Pak. Valleta provides some cinematic fun via his excellent choreographed action sequences. Fans of the films will love the attention Pak and Valleta give to the character and the opening scenes of this new monthly. Look for cover variants by artists Giovanni Valletta, John Cassaday, Denys Cowan and Bill Sienkiewicz, as well as a photo cover.
