Johnathan Maberry’s Pandemica Is A Sci-Fi Saga Of Defiance Against An Abusive Authority
by Olly MacNamee
The New York Times Bestselling author of V-Wars and Rot & Ruin, Jonathan Maberry, is bringing out a new comic book series called Pandemica this Fall which tells an age-old story of rebellion and defiance against authoritarian abuses. It will be illustrated by Alex Sanchez (Star Wars: The Old Republic) and colorist Jay Fotos (Locke & Key).
Maberry expanded on this basic premise below:
Pandemica reflects a lot of fears about the direction in which our country and the world is going. It deals with a diverse group of people who discover that a secret organization is selling designer pathogens for use in ethnic cleansing. My story is about the kinds of people who take a stand against this, who find the courage to fight back, who put themselves in harm’s way to protect the innocent.
And, here’s even more on this new book, coming in September from IDW:
The first issue of Pandemica, slated for release in September, will depict an America on the verge of war, as a shadow government prepares to launch “purity bombs” for ethnic cleansing, and a small group of scientists and former SpecOps shooters bands together to avert this disaster. Maberry joins artist Alex Sanchez (Star Wars: The Old Republic) and colorist Jay Fotos(Locke & Key) in inviting readers to resist the sickness that plagues the nation — and ultimately save the world!
