In 2016, Dynamite published the sci-fi thriller one-shot comic, Myopia #1, written by Richard Dent, and illustrated by Patrick Berkenkotter, and now they have announced that the property will return with a 30 page special, “Rise of the Domes” in February 2018.
Dynamite reveal the special’s storyline as follows:
In this second installment, the stakes are raised as the government decodes more of the virus that has been planted in the mysterious domes discovered at the magnetic poles. This leads to Ledge betraying Molly’s trust and placing Matthew’s psychological health in danger. Meanwhile the mysterious James Chase begins his first day of work at the invasive Formula Media Corporation where he meets Jill, the executive Formula Media Assistant who processes all the psychic imprints connected to the Central Lens Network.
Writer Richard Dent says:
I’m so excited to be working on the next issue of Myopia with Dynamite. The slow build of the first issue begins to break into an exciting pace and is just going to get faster from there!
Richard Dent is a Creative Writing teacher through the National University MFA program, and his original version of Myopia (in screenplay form) was selected as a finalist in the Francis Ford Coppola Screenwriting Competition and the Austin Film Festival Screenwriting Competition.
Myopia originally came to Dynamite after a successful Kickstarter supported by the likes of George R.R. Martin, Margaret Atwood, Dean Koontz and Jim Butcher.
We have a special sneak peek at the special below:
Myopia: Rise of the Domes will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ December 2017 Previews catalog, slated for release in February 2018.
