Calexit Returns in February With a Third Issue in March
2018 will also see the return of Calexit, the series by Matteo Pizzolo and artist Amancay Nahuelpan. Following a hiatus, Calexit returns on February 14 with the release of the much anticipated second issue as well as a new, third printing of the debut issue which features a cover by Ashley A. Woods.
In Calexit, the citizens of California struggle to seize power back from an autocratic government after a fascistic President takes over the United States. “From its history as a breakaway state with the Bear Flag Revolt to becoming the home of rebel fiction like Star Wars and NWA, California has represented the spirit of resistance for almost two hundred years. The first arc of Calexit tells the tale of a U.S. President going to war against the Golden State, and, with California being the fifth largest economy on Earth, things escalate pretty quick. Although we conceived this story back before the 2016 election, California’s defiance of Trump’s policies and the Trump Administration’s new policy war against California has us scrambling to keep our speculative adventure a step ahead of the real world.”
The third printing of Calexit #1 by writer Matteo Pizzolo and artist Amancay Nahuelpan, featuring a cover by Ashley A. Woods, goes on sale on February 14, 2018.
Calexit #2 by Pizzolo and Nahuelpan goes on sale on February 14, 2018.
