There’s a lot of post-apocalyptic…stuff…around these days. Whether it’s books, film, television or video games, end-of-days pop culture abounds. And comic books are no different than those other forms of media.
A dystopian future, it seems, sells.
More important than moving product, however, the apocalypse allows for great character-driven stories, doesn’t it? And the permutations of character and plot, wrapped up in a big final days bow, seem endless.
Brian Wood (he of Rockstar Games once upon a time), can write story and plot. His well-regarded, creator-owned projects like DMZ, Demo and Northlanders, despite their varying genres, all contain story and characters as their major strengths. And now he brings those aspects to the fore on an eagerly anticipated post-apocalyptic series.
And believe me, it’s gonna be…yeah!
