EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT: IRIS #4 COVERS

Aspen Comics has provided The Continuum a first look at Joe Benitez's four covers for Executive Assistant: Iris #4.

The covers connect vertically to form one image.

Executive Assistant: Iris #4 will be in stores on Sept. 16.

Here's how Aspen describes the issue:

"The exciting fourth issue of Aspen's newest action adventure series, Executive Assistant: Iris takes a look at Iriss dark past and what led her to become the deadly assassin she is today! Iris learns old wounds never truly heal as she revisits her youth and the brutal lifestyle she once inhabited in China.

"With revenge in her heart and tragic memories still burning inside her, Iris sets out on a mission to bring justice to the man responsible for her broken path--and now cloudy future. And in the process, she could potentially save the lives of many other young girls headed down the same road she took."
