The first of four new ComiXology Originals announced last month will hit stores tomorrow. Breaklands, by writer Justin Jordan, artist Tyasseta, colorist Sarah Stern, and letterer Rachel Deering, is set in a world where everyone has superhero powers except for one young woman who happens to be the book's protagonist.
ComiXology, Amazon's premier digital comics service introduces Breaklands, an all-new, creator owned mini-series from Justin Jordan, the co-creator and writer of The Strange Talent of Luther Strode, acclaimed artist Tyasseta, and colorist Sarah Stern, with letters by Rachel Deering. Set 150 years in the future, Breaklands features a world where everyone has powers… except for one young woman, Kasa Fain, who is desperate to find her recently kidnapped brother. This epic 5-issue comic series is part of the comiXology Originals line of exclusive content. Breaklands #1 is available to read at no additional cost on September 4th for members of Amazon Prime via their Prime Reading benefit, Kindle Unlimited and comiXology Unlimited, and for purchase on Kindle and comiXology.
150 years after humanity developed psychic powers and ended the world as we know it, a new world has emerged. Everyone has powers. Some powers, like the ability to light a match, are modest. But some powers—like the ability to reshape the world—are both vast and dangerous. Kasa Fain is different. She doesn't possess powers. Kasa is an outsider, a teenager who has been in hiding, until the day her younger brother is kidnapped and everything changes.
In a press release revealing the first look at interior artwork from the series, Jordan said:
We wanted to do a book about what would happen if a lot of people suddenly got a lot of power. It was important that the world didn't look like what readers have seen in traditional post apocalypse stories which, generally, ends up deserts and barren landscapes. Instead, the environment has had a chance to bounce back. And there's plenty of high action, colorful new cultures, and weird creatures.
Check out the preview below, and look for Breaklands #1 on ComiXology and Amazon tomorrow.
