An underpaid crew of freelance Terrorfighters is humanity’s last hope in Terrorwar

Saladin Ahmed and artist Dave Acosta make their Image debut with the upcoming Terrorwar. Previously published via Ahmed’s “Copper Bottle” newsletter, this ongoing sci-fi/horror series featuring mind bending monster-fighting will launch in print format for the first time from Image in April 2023.

In the world of Terrorwar, Blue City was the last livable place on Earth. Now it’s crawling with Terrors—creatures that transform into their victims’ worst fears. Humanity’s last hope? Muhammad Cho and his overworked, underpaid crew of freelance Terrorfighters.

Terrorwar #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, April 19:

  • Cover A by Acosta – Diamond Code FEB230012
