Kyle Higgins, Alec Siegel and Rod Reis' COWL was a constantly rewarding and engaging take on superheroes, and next month the creative team is reuniting for a brand new miniseries titled Hadrian's Wall. Described as a locked room murder mystery in space, we've got a preview of the first issue to whet your appetite

Hardrian's Wall is not about the famous wall in Scotland; instead the name has been applied to a space station where the title's lead, Simon Moore, is called to investigate the death of an astronaut stationed aboard. Cursed with his own demons and forced to face the failure of his marriage when confronted by his ex-wife, Moore's investigation seems impossible, and one wrong step could re-ignite the interstellar cold war.

First announced at Image Expo, and published by Image and OSSM Comics, Hadrian's Wall is an eight issue miniseries that combines the tense atmosphere of a noir detective story with the high-stakes action of a sci-fi drama and the first issue hits September 14th.
