SURVIVING MEGALOPOLIS #1-5 (Gail Simone / Jim Calafiore)

Suite à la parution de Leaving Megalopolis chez Dark Horse Comics, la scénariste Gail Simone (Secret Six, Swords of Sorrow) et le dessinateur Jim Calafiore annoncent une suite, intitulée Surviving Megalopolis, que publiera l’éditeur en 2016 sous la forme d’un mini-série en 6 chapitres.

L’histoire suit la recherche d’un groupe de mercenaires qui a été engagé par une multimillionnaire pour retrouver son mari dans les décombres de Megalopolis. Pour s’orienter sur place, les missionnaires font appel aux citoyens qui ont survécu à la destruction de la ville des mains de leurs protecteurs super-héroïques.

En supplément, les deux auteurs répondront aux questions laissées en suspens précédemment; notamment “qu’est-ce qui a perverti l’esprit des super-héros” et “où sont passés les super-vilains” ?

The Kickstarter phenomenon returns! Fan-favorite creators Gail Simone (Batgirl, Deadpool) and J. Calafiore (Secret Six, Exiles) return to the town whose citizens are hunted—not by villains, but by heroes! The survivors of Megalopolis reluctantly go back to the city—still under the control of formerly beloved superheroes turned brutal killers—on a rescue mission straight into the heart of madness. Get in on the ground floor of this critically acclaimed series and see what happens when the good guys go very, very bad.

"If this first volume is any indication, Simone and Calafiore both have a bright future, full of the guts and glory we’ve all come to love from them, in creator-owned comics. The sooner we get to see that future, the better.” —Comicosity

An illegal rescue attempt into the center of the quarantined city goes terribly wrong, and the rescuers attract the attention of the supers in the worst way imaginable. Also, the question is answered—where are all the supervillains?[/quote]
