Remember all of those Image teasers that just kept on coming? I have another one for you! But don’t worry… this time I also have the actual book they were teasing all along. Meet the Front Line, whose exploits you’ll be able to follow in the latest Image title, Secret Identities. Here’s the final teaser…



… and everything you need to know about the book that contains all these heroes, as well as their secrets, though it doesn’t look like they’ll stay secret for long.

An all-new superhero series by Faerber and Joines takes flight
Fan favorite writers Brian Joines (KRAMPUS!, Noble Causes) and Jay Faerber (COPPERHEAD, GRAVEYARD SHIFT) team up with artists Ilias Kyriazis (Blood Opera, Manifesto) and Charlie Kirchoff (Doctor Who) to introduce readers to their new favorite supergroup, The Front Line, in SECRET IDENTITIES—coming from Image Comics this February.In SECRET IDENTITIES #1, the supergroup known as The Front Line has just invited the new hero Crosswind to join them. But what they don’t know is that Crosswind is a mole, sent to learn all their secrets. And the Front Line has LOTS of secrets…”Brian and I have been friends for a long time, and one of our common interests is super-heroes,” said Faerber. “So it only made sense that our first writing collaboration would be on a project like this. And Ilias’ art is explodes off the page, mixing a classic super-hero style with an alternative sensibility.”

“It’s great to be dipping my toe into super-hero waters,” added Joines. “And to be doing it with someone with a track record like Jay is a true thrill. On top of that, watching Ilias bring these characters, some of whom have been warming the bench in my head for a very long time, to life with such vibrant style and energy… absolutely amazing.”

While issue #1 introduces Crosswind as a traitor, what readers won’t know is what form his betrayal will take. When will he turn on the team? How will he do it? While he bides his time gaining their trust, he must also learn to act like a hero. Is there a chance that acting like a hero will actually turn him into one?

SECRET IDENTITIES #1 lands in stores on 2/18 and can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code DEC140617.
