The Few Will Rise This January from Image Comics
By Staff Reports
Critically lauded writer and playwright Sean Lewis (SAINTS) and red-hot artist Hayden Sherman team up for a brand-new limited dystopian maxi-series, coming this January from Image Comics.
THE FEW combines the action of Mad Max with a Station Eleven sensibility in this sci-fi series for mature readers. In a dystopian future, two survivalist brothers stumble across an unlikely sight: a woman asleep in the woods holding nothing but a gun and a baby wearing a gas mask. Bent on lending her their help, they find that nothing is as it seems: betrayals, secrets, and revelations abound in the fight for what’s left of America.
“I couldn’t be prouder of this book,” said Lewis. “A strong female lead. Survivalists. Extremists and a recognizable American future. It’s a total journey, and Hayden’s art is unreal. He’s a star in the making.”
“This is the kind of story I dream of: strange characters, strange places, strange events, but all grounded in a haunting reality,” said Sherman. “In this book Sean gives just that, and a whole world of characters for me to play with. It’s a story well-suited for the times.”
THE FEW #1 (Diamond code: NOV160542) hits comic book stores Wednesday, January 18th. Final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, December 19th.
Advance praise for THE FEW:
“The Few brings together Cuaron and Carpenter—Children of Men meets Escape from New York with amazing grit and visual sensibility. The best type of dystopian brainchild only comics can offer, in the tradition of Tank Girl and Ezquerra’s Dredd.” —Steve Orlando (VIRGIL, Supergirl, Midnighter)
“Loved it! It was really cool, great pacing, interesting storytelling, tight dialogue. A great blend of Mad Max, Lone Wolf and Cub, and Popbot.” —Riley Rossmo (RASPUTIN)
