AfterShock Comics has announced its next new title with Trust Fall, debuting in June from writer Christopher Sebela and artist Chris Visions. The comic follows Ash Parsons, who was raised to believe she’s special. She has the ability to teleport things, but not herself. With her family as the foundation of a struggling criminal outfit, it helps having someone that can teleport cars and entire bank vaults. Since she can’t move herself around in this manner, every job has a risk associated with it. Ash has to trust her family to catch her and escort her to safety. Everything starts out well, but when the Parsons start moving up in the world, Ash pushes against this golden cage.
Writer Christopher Sebela says:
The quick pitch is that Trust Fall is about a woman, Ash Parsons, who can teleport things, but not herself, who relies on her family to catch her at the end of every job. But she lives in an isolated bubble and has never been a part of the real world, all thanks to her family as well. See, Ash’s family is also a crime family and Ash is their golden goose that lets them steal things they could never dream of and elevate them up thru the echelons. They tell her where to go, teach her a narrative about the world so that nothing she does seems like a crime and they drug her to keep her under their thumb when she’s not working. So when Ash begins to push back against this bubble, what she finds underneath it is not going to be pleasant for anyone involved.
Trust Fall #1 is set for release on June 12th, 2019. It will feature a main cover by Visions and a 1:10 incentive cover by Claire Roe.
Artist Chris Visions added:
Having worked with Chris before, it’s always a pleasure and I’m excited to be back in the sidecar, laughing maniacally and unloading clips of ink cartridges. Creating with him allows me to pour a lot of the things we love in common into the panels, as well as bits that mean a lot to me: easter eggs, the fashion, and little character nods to other important references. AfterShock has been awesome in allowing me to explore what I can pull from the threads in the story and cut loose. I’m also excited to be coloring my work!
