“A Ballistic Sci-Fi Action Romance”: Preview The New World #1 By Kot, Moore and Moore

by Olly MacNamee

Aleš Kot (Zero, Days of Hate), Tradd Moore (Luther Strode), and Heather Moore launch The New World #1 this July via Image Comics, and they’ve offered up a rather large set of preview pages which we are more than happy to share with you all out there.

Described as “a ballistic sci-fi action romance,” miniseries, it all kicks off with an oversized debut issue and features a backup comic introducing the talents of Aaron Stewart-Ahn and Sunando C. Here’s the plot ahead of our preview:

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. And soon, the entire state of New California is after them.


The New World #1 is out on July 25th from Image Comics.
