Rafael Albuquerque Offers New Cover for 2 Guns: Second Shot Deluxe Edition

Two guns are better than one right? They are when they've been out of print and are being brought back in with a grand flourish, a big-screen adaptation and an oversized collection. BOOM! Studios is slated to release 2 Guns: Second Shot Deluxe Edition, a collection that includes the complete original series by Steven Grant. It'll also boast a ton of bonus features and a brand new cover by Rafael Albuquerque.

Trench is a deep-cover DEA agent. Steadman is an undercover Naval Intelligence officer. Both think the other is a simple gun-for-hire, the perfect accomplice to help steal a bank vault full of mob money for the good guys. And neither realizes that their caper is a gigantic double-cross from the mob, who’s just tricked both men into stealing $50 million from the CIA. Now Trench and Steadman race headlong across the Southwest, guns blazing, desperately outrunning Feds and mobsters alike while scrambling madly to find some way of clearing both their names before they’re carved on tombstones!

It's written by Grant and drawn by Mateus Santolouco. The 2 Guns: Second Shot Deluxe Edition ships under Diamond order code MAR130915. Available for the first time in a full-sized edition, the collection retails for $19.99 and has 144 pages.
