Critically acclaimed writer/playwright Sean Lewis (SAINTS) and rising-star artist Hayden Sherman (John Carter: The End) will release a trade paperback collection of their dystopic series THE FEW this august from Image Comics.
In an America divided between the haves and the have-nots, Edan Hale is a soldier on the run. Saddled with a gas-mask-wearing infant and aided by the very terrorists she was once sworn to hunt, Edan has become a woman without a country in a place where survival is only possible if you have allies.
“I had this dream where a woman was in the woods, and in her arms was a baby wearing nothing but a gas mask,” said Lewis. “I'm a new dad, and I think I get really worried about the world my son is going to grow up in and the toxicity of that. But the book isn't just about that—it's about how people make amends and how they become good. Both things I hope my son also learns.”
“With the world experiencing what it is, and with so many people at each other’s throats, I will always be thankful for the chance to explore and illustrate these contemplative stories alongside Sean,” said Sherman. “I couldn't have asked for a better first foray into the world of professional comics, and I certainly couldn't have asked for a better partner to go into it with.”
THE FEW (Diamond code: JUN170653, ISBN: 978-1-5343-0235-8) hits comic book stores Wednesday, August 23rd and bookstores Tuesday, August 29th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, July 10th.
