With a resume that includes successful and critically acclaimed titles such as “The Omega Men, Mister Miracle,” “Rorschach,” and “Strange Adventures,” best-selling writer Tom King definitely has the magic touch when it comes to plumbing the depths of the DC Universe and reimagining characters for a new generation of fans. On November 2, King and artist Greg Smallwood create a new legacy for DC’s deadliest bodyguard in “Human Target,” a 12-issue limited series based on the character co-created by Len Wein and Carmine Infantino.

Christopher Chance has made a living out of being a human target — a man hired to disguise himself as his client to invite would-be assassins to attempt his murder. He’s had a remarkable career until his latest case protecting Lex Luthor when things go sideways. An assassination attempt Chance didn’t see coming leaves him vulnerable and left trying to solve his own murder…as he has 12 days to discover just who in the DCU hated Luthor enough to want him dead.

The series starts Nov. 2, 2021.
