Megabrain Comics sent Major Spoilers a trailer for the upcoming American Dark Age, the first of the company’s neo-medieval trilogy.

Megabrain Comics brings you the first series in their neo-medieval™ apocalyptic trilogy; AMERICAN DARK AGE which takes place in a near future when a mysterious event renders all combustion based machinery, weapons and electrical technology impotent and useless. The story focuses on Katherine Brody, a young punk singer from Oregon and her rise as an unlikely warrior in a world that no longer recognizes itself.

AMERICAN DARK AGE thrusts the reader in to this archaic landscape and asks not only who you were before “The Blackout” but who will you be after, with so much righteous destiny and sinister opportunity laid before you to be picked at with the tip of a sword.

Brody’s journeys take her and a small band of Marine Corps “Knights” from the bloody shores of California across the now harsh and lawless landscape of the United States to an end that will change the face of a nation forever.

Filled with political intrigue, character drama and ultra-violent sword clashing battle scenes, AMERICAN DARK AGE takes a new look at the American spirit and what people can achieve and destroy when they set their mind to it.

  1. Well, I’m intrigued. I’m not sure how they’ll explain away combustion engines, seems to me if combustion engines out of commission then combustion in general is on the skids. This “mysterious event” must rewrite the laws of physics or something. Regardless, the premise seems interesting none the less.

  2. Hmmmm, Firearms impotent, just like the combustion engine,(now I can see with cars newer than 1970 models with electrical this and that, but older vehicles didn’t rely on electrical components or computers{1996 to now}) difficult explain away what they’re suggesting is beyond the physical realm. Sounds like an old cartoon from the 80’s called Visionaries, where a cataclysm happened to end the age of technology and ushered in the age of magic and a version of the Dark Ages on a planet Prysmos.

  3. There’s a preview of a few pages of this @

    It doesn’t do much to explain what happened to the world, but it’s a nice look at the art, which looks kinda spiffy if you ask me.

    Megabrain also has a Kickstarter page for issue one @

    This particular project has already been funded, but it also has some more info about this project and a sort of ‘mission statement’ by the creators.
