2009 marked the 30th anniversary of the Paramount Pictures film classic, The Warriors, directed by Walter Hill, who later went on to direct 48 Hours, Last Man Standing, and the acclaimed series Deadwood. Now, for the first time, this movie phenomenon has been adapted into a thrilling graphic novel.
The story chronicles one night in the lives of the New York City street gang, the Warriors, and their harrowing journey for survival and redemption. Cyrus, the messianic leader of the city's largest gang, the Riffs, declares a truce and calls a summit in the Bronx with all the rival gangs in attendance. Cyrus's vision is to unify all the gangs into one superorganization, one that the cops will never be able to control. But during the meeting, Cyrus is assassinated, and the murder is pinned on a member of the Warriors. With no time to prove their innocence, the Warriors have no choice: they must run - for their lives and for their honor. But it's a long, long way from the Bronx to Coney Island, especially with an entire city of ruthless thugs swearing vengeance and out for blood.
