School lockers full of submachine guns. Exploding burger shops. Shootouts with cops. Underground fights clubs and sci-fi porn funding radical militias of furious youth hellbent on seizing their freedom back from… whom? On Main Street everything looks fine, but, just below the surface, America is at war with itself.
Incendiary writer Matt Pizzolo (Godkiller, Occupy Comics) and striking newcomer Amancay Nahuelpan (upcoming Clandestino, Boy-1) unleash this tour-de-force that fearlessly assaults politics-as-usual. Young Terrorists continues the legacy of subversive comics like V For Vendetta, DMZ and The Invisibles, but brings it to the raging streets of contemporary America with a diverse ensemble of angry young anti-heroes.
Young Terrorists will blow minds as it rages against the machine and manically rips the scab off life under the new world order. This is the kind of story that could only be told in comics.
“A dark and brutal tale, told with invention and passion.”
– J.M. DeMatteis (Spider-Man: Kraven’s Last Hunt, Justice League)
“Smart dialogue, memorable characters, and in-your-face action. It’s THE INVISIBLES on PCP.”
– Julian Darius, SequArt (Grant Morrison: The Early Years)
WHAT IS IT?
What if “The Smoking Man” from X-Files was a real person, and his daughter found out what he did for a living?
The daughter of an assassinated globalist kingpin breaks out of an internment camp and leads her fellow escaped prisoners in a battle against an elitist conspiracy of shadow governments, megabanks, and military juntas in this edgy and subversive political thriller.
Amancay Nahuelpan’s fresh, emotive and edgy art style gives kinetic life to the paradigm-shifting story, a return to Pizzolo’s street philosophy and punk polemic roots that Film Threat characterized as “unapologetically brutal and surprisingly intelligent.”
The 80-page issue 1 perfect-bound prestige-edition launches this new ongoing series, continuing forward with standard 32-page monthly issues.
