Buckle Up this May for Rick Remender and Bengal’s Death or Glory
Writer Rick Remender and artist Bengal’s hotly anticipated Image Expo 2018 announcement—Death or Glory—will be flooring it into stores this May.
In Death or Glory, readers meet Glory, raised off the grid in a convoy amid truckers—the last men and women fighting for true freedom on the American open road. Now, in order to pay for her beloved dying Father’s surgery, Glory has three days to pull off four dangerous cross-country heists with mob killers, crooked cops, and a psycho ex-husband all out to bring her in or die trying.
Remender calls the series “very grounded” with a little bit of heightened reality. The series looks at the effect of the dying trucking industry, all of the jobs self-driving cars will make redundant, and its effect on those impacted including family and friends.
Death or Glory promises readers a high-speed chase across the American West that examines society’s dwindling freedoms and the price paid by those who fight for an untethered life, in this special double-sized first issue with 40 pages of story.
Death or Glory #1 Cover A by Bengal (Diamond Code MAR180577), Cover B by Duncan Fegredo (Diamond Code MAR180578), and Cover C by James Harren (Diamond Code MAR180579) will hit stores on Wednesday, May 2nd. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, April 9th.
