In the messed-up world of tomorrow a populist dictatorship –
known simply as THE REGIME – have made music illegal, preaching a
perverted version of law and order called ‘PEACE IS QUIET’.
Standing up to this onerous silence is ESSA, a teenager sick of
living in the bland and colorless world the Regime has created.
She’s 16, fed-up, and her only weapon is one killer rock song.
See, when ESSA listens to her favorite track – a bellowing punk
anthem called GARBAGE HEART – she doesn’t just feel invincible,
SHE IS INVINCIBLE , imbued with superhuman strength and durability
from listening to the song. What follows is a chaotic mess of color, punk music, and robot punching…needless to say, it’s going to get noisy.
In a press release from Scout Comics, writer and co-creator Christof Bogacs said, “VOLUME has been rattling around in my head for a while now. This is me venting all my pent-up teenage rage in an immature display of punching, explosions and song lyrics. The best part is I get to pull Skye and Nadia into the fray with me … and now Scout as well! As a fan of books like Long Lost and Heavenly Blues, I couldn’t be more excited to be working with Scout to bring this punk-drenched power-fantasy to life.”
Volume is scheduled to arrive sometime in the future…
