Accident Man is a series of comic strips written by British comic writer Pat Mills and Tony Skinner. The stories were initially printed in Toxic! in the early 1990s. A film of the same name was released in 2018.

Plot[edit]

The story centered on the life of Mike Fallon, a high-class hitman. Fallon was known for making his murders look like accidents, often going to extravagant lengths to do so. Fallon is also noted for his love of high living and glamorous girlfriends. Mike Fallon's, "I don't give a damn" attitude to his hits was changed the day his ex-girlfriend (a would-be Greenpeace activist) was murdered. Fallon then went on a murderous rampage to find out who paid the contract on his girlfriend and who actually made the hit.

Bibliography[edit]

Three Accident Man story series ran in Toxic!, between 6 and 8 issues each.

There was also a three-issue mini series published by Dark Horse comics in 1993, drawn by Duke Mighten this time in black and white.

In March 2014 The Complete Accident Man was published in hardback by Titan Comics (ISBN 978-1782760559).
