Image Comics announces “The New World,” a futuristic dystopian love story from Aleš Kot, Tradd Moore, and Heather Moore
Sometimes the publisher’s descriptions say more than anything I could possibly write up. Such is the case with The New World, an upcoming series from Image Comics. I mean, “Mad Max meets Romeo + Juliet”? SOLD.
MAD MAX MEETS ROMEO + JULIET IN TRADD MOORE AND ALES KOT’S EDGY THE NEW WORLD
PORTLAND, OR, 05/29/2018 — Aleš Kot (ZERO, DAYS OF HATE), Tradd Moore (LUTHER STRODE), and Heather Moore come together for THE NEW WORLD—a ballistic, science-fiction, action, romance miniseries set to launch this July.
THE NEW WORLD #1 begins with a massive-sized, 72-page debut issue, and features a backup comic introducing the talents of Aaron Stewart-Ahn and Sunando C.
Set in The United States of America—after the Second Civil War—THE NEW WORLD follows two lovers. One: a straight-edge vegan hacker anarchist boy with a penchant for messing with the State. The other: a chaotic, hedonistic cop with a reality TV show and a license to kill. This really shouldn't happen—and yet, somehow, it does. Soon, the entire state of New California is after them—so they have to run.
The New World will hit comic shops on July 25.
