Both the first and second issues of the dystopian series The Few, written by Sean Lewis (Saints) and illustrated by Hayden Sherman, are being rushed back to reprint, a third for issue #1 and a second for issue #2. The Few is described as “Mad Max action with a Station Eleven sensibility” and a “sci-fi series for mature readers”. The artwork on the serious is angular and haunting, and the color choices given it an almost wood-block or screen-print feel.
Here’s a look at some of the rather gorgeous interior pages of issue #1:
To further explain the series:
Nothing is as it seems in this dystopian future, and everything is at risk. Two survivalist brothers, caught up in the fight for what’s left of America, stumble upon an injured woman in the woods, holding nothing but a gun and a baby wearing a gas mask. As their pasts—and their secrets—begin to come to light, it’s clear that their futures are muddier than ever.
Here are our re-print covers for The Few #1 and #2:
