Heart Attack, a story 10 years in the making, is not only collecting the first six issues of the series, but six all-new chapters never seen before.
Skybound Entertainment is behind the project lead by writer Shawn Kittelsen and artist Eric Zawadzki.
“Heart Attack began 10 years ago as a story about young lovers fighting for equal rights in a post-pandemic future. But with every year since 2013, that future became disturbingly present, from videos of police killings to mass protests to authoritarian politicians, to a real pandemic in 2020,” said Shawn Kittelsen in a press release from Skybound Entertainment. “To cap things off, I survived an actual heart attack in 2022. So I feel an urgency to tell this story, and I’m grateful to be here with Eric. Not just to hold up a mirror to the problems of today, but to imagine a way forward for tomorrow. This book is about fighting injustice with the best weapons we have, truth and love.”
“I am beyond thrilled to have the never-before-seen entire 12-chapter story of Heart Attackpresented in one big collection,” said Eric Zawadzki in the same press release. “Everyone on the team put their all into this project and I couldn’t be more excited to share this epic love story with the world.”
Gene therapy has saved Americans from disease—only to give birth to Variants: people with powers so unique, the government denies their human rights. But a new rebellion begins when Charlie North and Jill Kearney learn their instant attraction unlocks powers of mass destruction and forces them to question how far they should go to topple the system.
Heart Attack arrives on September 27, 2023.
