August is quickly heating up to be one of the hottest months in recorded history, but let’s just hope it doesn’t spiral into some kind of 100-year drought that is depicted in Dynamite Entertainment’s upcoming one-shot H20.
When a 100-year global drought devastates the Earth and a failed rainmaking experiment destroys the atmosphere, humankind teeters on the brink of collapse. As the remaining nations wage war over dwindling water supplies and natural resources, two rival scientists on opposite sides of the world discover a lost glacier high in the Andes– setting off a deadly race to claim and control the planet’s last known source of fresh water. The story focuses on Aaron Turner, a brilliant volcanologist with a secret past he’d like to keep hidden. Aaron’s known for his radical, sometimes controversial theories and his intelligence is off the charts, but he’s trapped in the shadow of his father’s brilliance and failures – a burden that may finally lift if Aaron reaches the buried glacier first. But a terrible revelation awaits underground that threatens the very existence of their mission. Created by Liquid Comics and Eric Eisner’s, “Epic Cycle” graphic novel imprint.
The issue is written by Grant Calof, with art by Jeevan J. Kang. The 72-page book arrives in October with a $6.99 cover price.
