From the talented team behind Jonah Hex and the creator of Painkiller Jane comes a new female driven, action adventure. Book Smart is due in stores October 19th.

Kickstart Comics, the new publishing venture from Kickstart Productions, teamed up again with comic gurus Jimmy Palmiotti & Justin Gray (Jonah Hex, Power Girl, The
Resistance) on a new graphic novel entitled BOOK SMART. With Pencils & inks & cover by Juan Santacruz (Incredible Hulk, X-Men and The Resistance 2). Their previous
title together, The Twilight Experiment, was recently re-released in store.

BOOK SMART is part BOURNE IDENTITY meets ROMANCING THE STONE. The book focuses on a young woman wakes up in a hospital in Nepal with amnesia. As she
struggles to find answers on her identity, she finds criminals on her tail and that she has an uncanny skill set that suggest she may be an international spy.
