Beginning in December and continuing into spring 2013, the “Executive Extinction” crossover will take place over 10 issues, beginning with Executive Assistant: Assassins #6 and crossing each issue with the third volume of Executive Assistant: Iris. Each series will have five issues in the crossover, with art on Assassins by Jordan Gunderson and Iris art by Alex Lei. Teodoro Gonzalez will be colorist on both comics.
“You can read them separately, to be honest. They’re each their own stand-alone story,” Hernandez said. “But they’re under one larger banner called “Executive Extinction.”
The Executive Assistant universe is based on a concept that first started at Aspen in 2009, with the launch of Executive Assistant: Iris, which has since continued with several volumes. The concept of the Executive Assistants is based upon a true story that creator David Wohl found about the women who work for high-powered Chinese executives, both as executive assistants and as personal bodyguards — or even assassins.
Now many of these newer characters will team up in “Executive Extinction.” And Hernandez pointed out that the concept of a team of Executive Assistants was alluded to at the end of Wohl’s last event, “The Hitlist Agenda,” last year. As a result, there is a threat against the very existence of these Executive Assistants, and that’s what lies at the core of the crossover.
