About Atomic Blonde graphic novel:
BERLIN, NOVEMBER 1989.
Communism is collapsing, and soon both East and West will tear down the Berlin Wall.
But there is one last situation for MI6, Britain’s intelligence service, to resolve. Two weeks ago, an undercover MI6 officer was killed in Berlin. He was carrying information from a source in the East — a list that contains the name and details of every espionage officer in the city, on all sides.
But no list was found on his body.
MI6 sent Lorraine Broughton, an experienced spy with no ties to Berlin, to recover the list. But Lorraine walked into a powderkeg of social unrest, counter-espionage, defections gone bad, and secret assassinations. Then, on the night the Berlin Wall fell, her superior — MI6’s senior officer in the city — was shot dead in the street.
Now Lorraine has returned to London to tell her story. And nothing is what it seems.
THE COLDEST CITY
begins a new trilogy of spy thriller graphic novels written by ANTONY JOHNSTON, revitalizing classic espionage fiction and following in the footsteps of authors like John Le Carré, Len Deighton, and Ian Mackintosh.
Set in Berlin during the last days before the Wall was torn down, The Coldest City revels in the paranoia, mistrust and corruption boiling over at the epicenter of the Cold War — where loyalty is the first casualty of survival, and honor is a rare luxury.
