The eco-fiction tech thriller / love story, The Seeds is making the jump from floppies to trade paperback. Only two issues of the series were released in 2018 from Dark Horse Comics and Berger Books. Now we’ll see where the mini-series was heading in a deluxe trade paperback in December from writer Ann Nocenti and artist David Aja.
Writer Ann Nocenti says:
I’m so thrilled to finally to share our hopeful dystopian tale The Seeds with everyone. Grateful for the patience of the readers for our slow-growing Seeds. At this point the characters feel like family, even our nasty aliens. And who knows? Maybe all the world needs is a love story between an alien and a human to lead us someplace better…
The Seeds is set in a broken-down world where a rebellious group of ruthless romantics have fled a tech-obsessed society to create their own. A few cantankerous aliens have arrived to harvest the last seeds of humanity. When one falls in love with a human, a journalist named Astra has stumbled upon the story of a lifetime, only to find that by reporting it, she could destroy the last hope of a dying planet.
Artist David Aja added:
Maybe I can say what the aliens actually told me. They came one night, it was a big dazzling spaceship. Or maybe it was a streetlight, I’m not sure. But I heard a voice. And that voice told me “feed the naked. And buy The Seeds.
The Seeds is set for release at your local comic shop on December 23rd, 2020 and at bookstores and Amazon on January 5th, 2021.
Karen Berger says:
It’s wonderful to be publishing The Seeds, by two tremendous talents at the top of their game. It’s timely, subversive and oh-so-telling.
