BOOM! Studios has announced it is releasing the first volume of Nuclear Winter.
Nuclear Winter about a young woman just trying to survive her twenties in Montreal—albeit a Montreal that’s been plunged into an eternal winter with radioactive snow, thanks to an accident at the local nuclear power plant that occurred nine years ago. Life goes on for folks like Flavie Beaumont, a mail courier on snowmobile who’s carved out a pretty normal life for herself despite mutant rivals, eclectic urban wildlife, and unrelenting meteorological events.
“I’ve always loved the more cartoony spin on nuclear energy, be it the Simpsons power plant, glowing radioactive ooze, or anything marked with the radiation sign,” said Cab, the creator of the series. “But beyond the humorous sci-fi aspect of the story, I wanted to show the love-hate relationship Montrealers have with their winter. Most people who hear the premise of a never-ending winter get weak in the knees at the thought!
The English-language debut of Nuclear Winter Volume One is scheduled to arrive in May 2018.
