Image Comics Announces Dead Eyes: The Empty Frames


The upcoming five-issue miniseries Dead Eyes: The Empty Frames spins out of the events of the original deadly crime thriller series

PORTLAND, Ore. 06/14/2024 — Legendary creator and writer Gerry Duggan (X-Men, Falling In Love On The Path To Hell) and award-winning artist John McCrea (Hitman, Mythic) are reuniting to bring back their deadly crime series Dead Eyes for a five-issue miniseries that takes off after the events of the original mafia mystery story. Dead Eyes: The Empty Frames kicks off a new chapter in the fan-favorite vigilante thriller, hitting shelves this September.


In Dead Eyes: The Empty Frames, the world’s most unkillable comic is out of hiding and back stomping around Boston. At the end of the first volume, the masked hood known as Dead Eyes picked up a clue as to the location of the paintings swiped in the largest private art heist in America. Can Dead Eyes and Wheels take down the score while avoiding the cops and the mafia? Creators Duggan and McCrea are back and knocking teeth down throats.


“The unkillable Dead Eyes is back! We’ve never stopped working on Dead Eyes, and The Empty Frames has more tragical hilarious action than the first one. As always, McCrea, and colorist Mike Spicer really show off in this new volume and prove once again why they’re one of the best teams in the business,” said Duggan.


“I love drawing Dead Eyes! Gerry gives me a gritty, film noir world to sink my artistic teeth into, with just the right balance of humor and violence. And I get to work with my longtime collaborator, the amazing Mike Spicer. Plus the fantastic Joe Sabino on lettering duty ties everything up in a pretty, bloody bow. What more could a growing boy want!” said McCrea.

The first volume of Dead Eyes is available for purchase now in stores and on digital platforms.
