The Couriers is a series of graphic novels created and written by Brian Wood and illustrated by Rob G. and published by AiT/Planet Lar.[1]

Publication history

Woods has discussed a fourth volume, saying, in mid-2009:

Rob G and I have an agreement that should The Couriers film ever go into production, we'd be fools not to do a sequel. We've read the film script and it's good, but still no director has been attached, so I think it's a way's off.[2]


The story depicts the near-future world of New York City where two gun toting couriers deliver questionable goods by questionable means. Very heavily influenced by the Hong Kong style of cinema and Japanese manga style comics, The Couriers is an action driven graphic novel that returns the artform of comic books to its pulp/action oriented stories, albeit with an updated modern feel.

Connections with other comics

Some of the characters first appeared in the Couscous Express. It is also a part of Wood's Channel Zero universe as Jennie 2.5 showed up in the last chapter of the first trade.
