Undiscovered Country #3 Heads Back for a 2nd Printing

New York Times bestselling writers Scott Snyder and Charles Soule and artist Giuseppe Camuncoli’Undiscovered Country is turning heads with multiple sell-outs at the distributor level and issue #3 is being rushed back to print in order to keep up with skyrocketing demand for the hot series.

In Undiscovered Country, readers journey into an unknown region that was once the United States of America—a land that’s become shrouded in mystery and literally walled-off from the rest of the world for decades. A small expedition enters the former US in search of a cure to a humanity-ending pandemic. They travel inward and learn the secrets of what America has become; each member seeking their own form of truth in the undiscovered country.

For issue #3, the expedition undertakes a desperate attempt to rescue a member of the team from the Destiny Man’s strange caravan city. Success or certain doom hinges on Americana expert Ace Kenyatta, PhD—what he knows about the new lands…and what he doesn’t.

The series was acquired early on by New Republic Pictures after a competitive bidding war for potential franchise development with Snyder and Soule attached to adapt the screenplay and serve as executive producers alongside Camuncoli. John Hilary Shepherd will oversee development.

Undiscovered Country #3, second printing (Diamond Code DEC198444) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, February 19.

Review: Undiscovered Country #3

Undiscovered Country #3

Undiscovered Country is becoming an everything and the kitchen sink of a wild ride. That becomes even more apparent as a new wrinkle is added in Undiscovered Country #3.

Like the previous two issues, this third one gives us more info on one of the characters, Ace Kenyatta. The “expert” on the United States is an interesting one taking his “origin” and what he brings to the series as a whole in an unexpected direction.

Written by Scott Snyder and Charles Soule, Undiscovered Country #3 can only be described as a wild ride of a story continuing a wild ride of a series. Without spoiling the issue, there’s a new concept that’s added to a series that already has taken inspiration from so many thinks like Mad Max, American folklore, and Jurassic Park.

The team is after the key the Destiny Man holds and while the story could easily be entertaining just focused on that, it’s the layers that make the issue interesting. Each character has their moments that add to the mystery of it all. An exchange of dialogue delivers hints as to motives. Or, we learn about the history of the United States. It all creates a story you can enjoy in numerous ways. There’s the action and tension but there’s amazing worldbuilding going on as well.

The details go beyond the dialogue and plot but the art too. Giuseppe Camuncoli and Daniele Orlandini handle those duties superbly. Along with Matt Wilson on color and Crank! on lettering, each panel delivers so much detail. And, all of that detail helps tell a story and add to the worldbuilding. You’re challenged to see it all and put the pieces of the puzzle of what happened in history together.

Each issue of Undiscovered Country has been a surprise. It’s difficult to guess what to expect and what’s in store for readers. It’s rare to find an experience where you really have no idea what’s coming. “Wild ride” is a too simplistic way to describe a series that seems to have taken inspiration from so many things. The series is one of the comics that keep you truly excited for the next issue to see what’s next.

Review: Undiscovered Country #2

Undiscovered Country #2

Undiscovered Country #2 continues the wild ride writer Scott Snyder and Charles Soule set up in the first issue. It’s a hard issue to describe as our group of explorers mainly try to figure out what to do next as we the reader get a better idea about everything.

Snyder and Soule use the issue to focus on worldbuilding delivering wild ideas and concepts that are unexpected. And that’s part of the enjoyment of the series, it truly is undiscovered with wild ideas.

The comic has a Mad Max feel to it all, except if a group from our world stumbled upon it. Mashed together vehicles are mixed with mutant animal steeds for a world that’s a little bit of everything. That’s part of the fun of it all. You don’t know what to expect and what wild idea is next to show up on the page. Add in the fact that the “mission” might all be a lie to start and you have a blank page in so many ways.

That craziness is brought to life by Giuseppe Camuncoli and Daniele Orlandini. Matt Wilson provides color and Crank! the lettering. The designs are as crazy as the concepts with a look that feels part Burning Man, part Mad Max, and part junkyard find. There’s a mish-mash of designs and concepts that at times feels familiar and that plays off a bit that this is America, the land of consumer consumption. That’s emphasized a little in backmatter material adding more color to the world.

Undiscovered Country #2 is insane in a positive way with a look that’s just so over the top. Add in a story where everything is open at this point and we have a series where anything and everything feels possible, like a vivid fever dream.
