"The Leading Man" of acting AND espionage?

A brand spanking new title from the creative team that brought us Battle Hymn (which i loved BTW). I'm 100% in. Doesn't hurt that i love me some international spy intrigue... We'll have to wait and see how they work the superstar actor half of the story into the mix though ;)
Nick Walker has the life. Jet-setting across the world, visiting remote locations at his own pace, getting to hang out with some of the most rich and powerful people in the world, and being sought after by beautiful women. He's an actor…no wait, he's a spy.

No, wait…he's both.

In the upcoming miniseries The Leading Man from Oni Press, Nick Walker balances a life in Hollywood with a stealthy spy career and making sure his enemies don't find out. Created by the Battle Hymn team of writer B. Clay Moore and artist Jeremy Haun, the miniseries promises both stunning action sequences and celebrity-frenzied lifestyles.

Check out the full Newsarama interview for some hella-cool preview pages/panels and more info all around.

Recent B. Clay Moore projects, like Hawaiian Dick and Expatriate, for example, have started and then disappeared for long stretches unfinished. Yet here's another new one. This looks promising though, and I may try it.

Doesn't hurt that Oni is handling it in my eyes either.

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
