In May, writer Rick Remender and artist Bengal team for Death or Glory.
In DEATH OR GLORY, readers meet Glory, raised off the grid in a convoy amid truckers—the last men and women fighting for true freedom on the American open road. Now, in order to pay for her beloved dying Father’s surgery, Glory has three days to pull off four dangerous cross-country heists with mob killers, crooked cops, and a psycho ex-husband all out to bring her in or die trying.
DEATH OR GLORY promises readers a high-speed chase across the American West that examines society’s dwindling freedoms and the price paid by those who fight for an untethered life, in this special double-sized first issue with 40 pages of story.
“It’s very grounded. There’s a little bit of a heightened reality in that Glory is going to upset a number of different criminal organizations, and colorful shady figures end up in pursuit,” said Rick Remender in an interview with CBR. “We’re also looking at the effect the dying trucking industry, all the jobs self-driving cars will make redundant, its effect on her family and friends. Human resistance against the technology that’s eating up so many of our jobs…Glory’s world is crumbling in more ways than one. I really romanticize the idea of a convoy, this band of brothers and sisters, the last free people in the country, and now their way of life and that piece of the American mythology of the highway is in jeopardy.”
This is a series that has been a long time coming as Bengal and Remender worked for years to bring the story together.
Death or Glory #1 is scheduled to arrive on May 2, 2018.
