The Coldest City

Antony Johnston and Sam Hart

Comic Selection #12

Set in Berlin, 1989, The Coldest City weaves a tale of cloak and dagger espionage as the Berlin Wall begins to crumble. Lorraine Broughton, a hardened veteran spy for MI6, is sent into a powder keg of social unrest, counter-espionage, defections gone bad and secret assassinations as she infiltrates Berlin in search of a list containing the names of every intelligent agent working in the city. Broughton must find the list and save the lives of her fellow British agents before they can be exposed, but Berlin is a big city and she’s not the only one working in it. Described by critics as both a superlative spy thriller and a slow-burn masterpiece, The Coldest City garnered praise for Johnston’s layered characters and compelling mysteries and Hart’s stark, shadowy artwork.
