The world is a lonely place when you're a man without a home
- just ask Kev Hawkins. After murdering his boss in a nasty
government scheme, he's banished from the United Kingdom under
pain of death. What does the world hold for a man with little
life experience or training beyond wetworks and assassination?
Then again, with the past about to catch up with Kev in the
most violent and terrifying way possible, what the world holds
for him may be may be beside the point...
Man Called Kev features the exploits of the comedic spin-off
character from The Authority, Kev Hawkins. Previously
appearing in The
Authority: Kev and The
Authority: The Magnificent Kevin, this new
graphic novel sees our hero step out on his own - away from
the shadow of The Authority.
who is Kev Hawkins? He's a former SAS soldier turned full-time
drop-out. He took out the Authority (by accident). He stopped
an alien invasion (through blind luck). And, unfortunately
for him, he allowed a senior British politician to be eaten
by a tiger.
During the Gulf War, Kev's SAS unit took on a highly classified
mission, and saw something they shouldn't have seen. Now mysterious
assassins are wiping them out - and Kev's next on the list.
On the run and outgunned, Kev must turn to an old friend for
help. But can this perennial loser really turn his life around?
