Your First Look Inside 'Surgeon X' By Sara Kennedy, John Watkiss And Karen Berger, From Image Comics

Your First Look Inside 'Surgeon X' By Sara Kennedy, John Watkiss And Karen Berger, From Image Comics

The announcement at Image Expo of the new comic book Surgeon X saw editor Karen Berger step out onto a comic industry stage for the first time in a long while, and caused all manner of flappiness at DC Comics. But the book by Sara Kenney, John Watkiss, James Devlin and Jared K Fletcher is a lot more. And, as a parent especially, seeing my daughters prescribed all manner of antibiotics over the last few years, something central in mind.

Set against the backdrop of an antibiotic apocalypse in near future London. Rosa Scott, a brilliant and obsessive surgeon becomes Surgeon X, a vigilante doctor who uses experimental surgery and black market drugs to treat patients. But as Surgeon X, Rosa soon develops a godlike-complex, deciding who will live and who will die. Ultimately, she believes that to survive in this compromised world her own warped moral code is the one she must follow—even if it endangers those closest to her.

Here is your first look at what lies inside the pages… and it's set rather close to where I am typing this now… if twenty years out of synch.
