What if the children of the .0001% rejected their family legacies of global brutality and tore down the billionaire patriarchy? That’s the concept behind Billionaire Killers, a new comic book series created by writer Matteo Pizzolo and artist Soo Lee about corruption, conspiracy, and what happens when the next generation vows to burn it all down. On sale this March, Billionaire Killers is the latest comic book series from Black Mask Studios, the progressive, Los Angeles-based indie publisher.
In Billionaire Killers, the CEO of ExxonMobil is America’s Secretary Of State, a hedge fund manager worth $300 million is the Secretary Of The Treasury and a lawyer who sued the EPA 14 times is head of the EPA. It’s a world where the President stops even bothering to hide the fact that America is ruled by corporations; a world where the next generation declares: enough. The series follows two young women, Sera and Pru, heiresses to their industrialist fathers’ empires, who come to learn the patriarchs of their families earned their fortunes by causing global suffering, and then decide to go to war against their own parents.
Billionaire Killers is a standalone, ongoing comic book series that expands on Young Terrorists, the acclaimed comic by Pizzolo and artist Amancay Nahuelpan.
Billionaire Killers #1 is 36 pages and will retail for $3.99 when it goes on sale on March 28, 2018. Billionaire Killers #1 will feature 3 covers — by Soo Lee, Alexis Ziritt and Amancay Nahuelpan.
