afterburn01cover_2x3.jpgRed 5 Comics has sold the rights to their new series Afterburn to Ryan Kavanaugh’s Relativity Media. Tobey Maguire and Neal Moritz are teaming up to produce the adaptation.

Afterburn is a sci-fi adventure set against the backdrop of a postapocalyptic Earth, whose Eastern Hemisphere was destroyed by a massive solar flare, leaving what life remains mutated from radiation and fallout. The story revolves around a group of treasure hunters who for the right price extract such objects as the Mona Lisa, the Rosetta Stone and the Crown Jewels while facing rival hunters, mutants and pirates along the way.

At this time, no writer has been signed to adapt the story.
