Dark Horse Comics has announced a new ongoing series called The End League. According to the company The End League follows the last remaining supermen and women in a world full of evil, hoping to find the Hammer of Thor – the only thing that can save the world.
The series will be written by Rick Remender will art by Mat Broome.
“I’ve been a big fan of Rick Remender’s work on Fear Agent, and I’ve wanted to work with Mike Richardson and Dark Horse Comics for years on a creator-owned project. This book will set Rick apart from the pack—a Watchmen-sized epic!” said Broome of the team-up.
Take the jump for the full description.
The battle between good and evil is long since over; evil has prevailed. The entire world is now splintered into mafia-style territories that are ruthlessly controlled by eternally feuding supervillains. Earth itself has been transformed into a nightmarish prison, little more than a polluted, environmental muddle; the decades of superhuman war have sent the planet into a nuclear winter. The only light in the night sky is the glow of the evil new gods as they struggle for dominance.
Only ten champions have managed to survive the villains’ bid to eradicate them. For these former heroes, there exists no hope of defeating the new, dark lords of Earth. The once courageous and gallant have been reduced to pursuing the same primal goal as the remaining human population—survival. To that end, together, these last remaining heroes comprise the small band known only as The End League.
If this series is going to be as epic as Dark Horse claims, this could be an awesome read. The End League will kick off his winter.
