BOOM! Studios Gives WPR ‘The Rinse’
Get ready for some kick ass modern day crime noir coming your way soon. Oh, and it’s only a buck? Sweet.
Coming this September BOOM! Studios is offering the first 22-page issue of The Rinse for a measly buck, when they should be charging us full price for this cool looking comic to be honest. I was wondering what was going to happen to the guys at Vertigo when it was closed up by DC, here is probably a taste of what is to come, Gary Phillips (Cowboys and Angeltown) is doing the writing and Marc Laming (American Century) is handling the cool looking artwork.

THE RINSE is a tale of high finance and low-down greed as Jeff Sinclair, the premiere laundryman in San Francisco, is unwillingly pulled into a dangerous gig laundering $25 million in stolen casino skim money. Forced to truly consider his line of work and the evil that he facilitates, Jeff must find a way to clean the cash and wash away his own sins. A grounded, gritty look at the world of money laundering in the vein of Elmore Leonard, THE RINSE is a modern crime classic in the making!
