Aberrant is a Modern Political/Conspiracy Thriller
Coming to you this June from Action Lab: Danger Zone, Aberrant is a truly filmic tale, the obvious brainchild of a creator who has for years been penning smart, testosterone-driven action movies for some of Hollywood’s biggest directors; folks like Ridley Scott, Justin Lin, F. Gary Gray, John Woo, and Luc Besson.
Written by Rylend Grant, Aberrant was perhaps the last major comic series created inside Los Angeles pop culture bastion Meltdown Comics. The geekdom landmark sadly just announced it would be closing its doors after 25 trendsetting years. The series features art by Zsombor Huszka, color by Iwan Joko Triyono, and lettering by HdE. The cover is by Huszka and Triyono.
David, a U.S. Army Special Operations Commander, distraught after losing his entire unit to a superhuman attack, wages an absolutely brutal one-man war on the eccentric billionaire and former superhero, Lance Cordrey, whom he believes is ultimately responsible. That is until Nelson Little, the head of a clandestine paramilitary outfit called Article 13, provides David with evidence that Cordrey may be a patsy, and David’s men were killed as part of a vast and twisted government/military conspiracy.
Grant describes Aberrant as a modern political/conspiracy thriller that explores how the United States’ military and geopolitical agenda would necessarily change if superpowered individuals (the “Aberrant”) walked among us.
Predictably, Aberrant hasn’t gone unnoticed by Hollywood’s movers and shakers. The animation rights to the series were picked up by Ryan Colucci’s Spoke Lane Entertainment. The plan is for a hand-drawn series.
Aberrant will be out this June.
