AfterShock Comics is lining up a new series that’s set to debut on June 10th, 2020 with Red Atlantis. The new project comes from writer Stephanie Phillips (Butcher of Paris) and artist Robert Carey (Aliens: Resistance) with letter Troy Peteri. The first issue will have the main cover by Robert Hack while an incentive cover comes from Tim Bradstreet. It’ll be priced at $4.99.
“When a series of violent events are linked to a covert group of Russian terrorists with the ability of mind control, a journalism student finds herself mixed up in a world of espionage and political intrigue as she learns secrets about Russia and about herself,” said Phillips. “There are a lot of familiar themes – espionage, politics, Russia/US tension – but the story brings a supernatural element that is actually steeped in history. Add to that Jan Neumann bringing his life experiences and expertise to this story, and I think our creative team was able to accomplish something really unique with Red Atlantis.”
Plot Concept: A series of unexplained, violent crimes on Election Day around the U.S. leads the FBI to zero in on a covert group of Russian terrorists.
When a Texas journalism student named Miriam accidentally finds herself mixed up in the investigation, her life will never be the same. With political espionage, treason, and even mind control, can she clear her name and stop the U.S. from entering into a new Cold War?
