The series will be written by Anthony Del Col (Assassin’s Creed, Kill Shakespeare), with art by Werther Dell’Edera (Batman: Detective Comics, House of Mystery) and first issue covers by Fay Dalton, Emma Vieceli, Robert Hack, and Werther Dell’Edera.
In this modern take on the popular teen detectives series, brothers Frank and Joe Hardy are accused of the murder of their father, who was a detective in the small resort town of Bayport. The boys must team up with femme Fatale Nancy Drew to find the real murderer and prove their innocence. It’s Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys through the lens of hardboiled noir like Ed Brubaker’s Fatale and Darwyn Cooke’s Parker.
Dynamite plans other titles for the license, including comics aimed at pre-teens, teens, and grown-ups. The license covers original graphic novels, manga and periodical comic books.
