TEST #1 by multi-Eisner Award nominee, Christopher Sebela, artist Jen Hickman, colorist Harry Saxon, letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou, and designer Tim Daniel, has officially sold out. A second printing, with a new cover by Hickman and Daniel, will hit store shelves on August 21st, 2019.
Debuting to near universal acclaim, TEST is a 10-minutes-in-the-future sci-fi story unlike anything else on the stands. It follows character Aleph Null, a non-binary, future-addicted corporate guinea pig on the run, as he embarks on a quest to find Laurelwood, a mythical Midwestern town where corporations test-market the future with tech that couldn’t possible exist yet, but does.
The original solicitation can be read below:
Aleph Null is a lot of things: An orphan, a human guinea pig undergoing medical tests for cash, a bodyhacker, a hardcore future junkie, and a corporate asset. But now, Aleph is on the run from their old life, in search of a mythical, Midwestern town named Laurelwood—where they’re test-marketing the future with tech that can’t possibly exist yet, and won’t for decades.
From Eisner-nominated Chris Sebela (Crowded, High Crimes) and Jen Hickman (Moth & Whisper) comes the story of a town out of time, full of mysteries, and populated by guinea pigs in need of liberation by the misfit least likely to be their savior.
