Newthink explores the polarization of the country and the technocrats driving us to extremes

 AWA Studios has announced the sci-fi anthology series, Newthink. From writer Gregg Hurwitz alongside an all-star team of artists each tackling a different issue, the original comic holds a dark mirror up to the modern world of technology and the culture wars. Featured artists in the 5-issue series include Mike Deodato Jr., Ramon Rosanas, Mike Choi, Keron Grant, and Will Conrad

Newthink is a science fiction comic set in a faraway world…that is actually the reality of living today in America. Much in the way that Star Trek transported 1960’s social upheaval to faraway planets or The Twilight Zone broadcast Cold War anxiety through the lens of monsters and aliens, this Black Mirror-style series continues a long tradition of using science fiction to underscore social commentary. Newthink aims to examine the cultural and political polarization of the country and the technocrats that have driven us to extremes of thought that we need to present the present as something futuristic. Each story in the 5-issue anthology consists of unique characters and independent storylines that highlight these themes. 

Newthink #1 will be available Wednesday, June 1st both digitally and in stores wherever comic books are sold.
