Jonathan Maberry of V-Wars and Rot and Ruin fame is back with Pandemica, a new story of defiance against authoritarian abuses, from IDW Publishing.
“Pandemica reflects a lot of fears about the direction in which our country and the world is going,” says Maberry. “It deals with a diverse group of people who discover that a secret organization is selling designer pathogens for use in ethnic cleansing. My story is about the kinds of people who take a stand against this, who find the courage to fight back, who put themselves in harm’s way to protect the innocent.”
The first issue of Pandemica will depict an America on the verge of war, as a shadow government prepares to launch “purity bombs” for ethnic cleansing, and a small group of scientists and former SpecOps shooters bands together to avert this disaster. Maberry joins artist Alex Sanchez (Star Wars: The Old Republic) and colorist Jay Fotos (Locke & Key) in inviting readers to resist the sickness that plagues the nation — and ultimately save the world!
Pandemica is scheduled for a September 2019 release.
