IDW reveals John Ridley and Stefano Raffaele’s The Ministry of Compliance

For 37 years, humanity has been manipulated by an extraterrestrial organization called the Devolution. Utilizing 13 ministries, these cunning alien agents have infiltrated every aspect of humanity’s culture, weakening civilization by strategically destabilizing it and flooding the planet with misinformation to accelerate chaos and division among mankind. This has all been in an effort to take over and reshape the planet, and these secretive saboteurs truly believe they are helping humanity in the long run. But what happens when the interstellar operatives begin to turn on each other, and humanity is caught in the middle of the cosmic conflict?

Eisner-nominated storyteller John Ridley reunites with GCPD: The Blue Wall collaborator Stefano Raffaele to present The Ministry of Compliance, a sociopolitical sci-fi thriller that is full of extraterrestrial espionage and excitement as the creatives take a look at the world we live in today through the lens of an inconspicuous alien invasion.

The Ministry of Compliance #1 goes on sale November 15, 2023, featuring primary covers by Raffaele and colorist Brad Anderson, letters by Ariana Maher, and variants by Ryan Sook, Claire Roe, and Edwin Galmon with more to be announced soon.
