SDCC 2012 – Eastman and IDW Head Into Lost Angeles
IDW Publishing announced another project in their ongoing partnership with comics legend Kevin Eastman. Lost Angeles is an action-packed, science-fiction collaboration with fellow comics luminaries Simon Bisley and Joe Pearson.
When all hell breaks loose following a massive comet’s near miss, the sprawling metropolis of Los Angeles is irreparably fractured and claimed by legions of brutal gangs. Perpetually turf-thirsty bands of fierce warriors fight day in and day out to claim blood and respect across swaths of scarce land, battered by cosmically twisted disasters. As civilization recedes into uncompromising tribal life, an anomaly surfaces: two rival gang members, Mikal and Angel, find themselves in the throes of a comet-crossed love affair. Threatening to tear their respective clans apart from within, their love becomes the centerpiece to all-out gang war as Lost Angeles reaches its fever-pitched conclusion over six issues.
From a concept by Eastman and Bisley, a story by Eastman, Bisley, and Joe Pearson, and featuring painted covers by Bisley with pencils and inks by Eastman, Lost Angeles promises to be a brutal, gorgeous, post-apocalyptic thrill ride the likes of which civilization has yet to see, and may not be able to handle!
