Image Comics Debuts Futuristic Sci-Fi ‘Heart Attack’ By Kittlesen And Zawadzki

by Oliver MacNamee

In a very Uncanny X-Men sounding comic, Heart Attack, by Shawn Kittelsen (Mortal Kombat 11) and Eric Zawadzki (The Dregs, Eternal), we meet the Variants; people born with special powers due to gene therapy received by their parents. Only to be denied their basic human rights. Sound familiar? But, I’m sure that it’s more than just that. I mean, it is set in the near future, rather than the present. But then, wasn’t Days of Future Past too? Find out for yourselves this November 20th.

In Heart Attack, gene therapy has saved Americans from disease—only to give birth to Variants: people with powers so unique, the government denies their human rights. But a rebellion has begun… Charlie North is on the run from the police when he crosses paths with Jill Kearney. Instant attraction becomes mass destruction when they unlock powers neither knew they had. Now, the question isn’t how to use them—but how far they’re willing to go.
