This September, Phillip Sevy will release his first creator-owned comic as writer, artist, and colorist: Triage, published by Dark Horse Comics. After providing art on series ranging from Tomb Raider (Dark Horse Comics) to The Freeze (Image Comics), this new project allows the creator to channel the tale of a struggling nurse, an airborne superhero, and a post-apocalyptic survivor, who meet in a science-fiction blockbuster that spans multiple realities. These figures collide as a ruthless machine hunts these women down, threatening the fabric of time and space.
Evie Pierce, a nurse going through an identity crisis, finds herself with Orbit, a sassy superhero, and Marco, a hardened post-apocalyptic commander, in a quest to survive,” Sevy explains. “They have been targeted by Hunter—a killer bent on destroying them. If they die, all existence ceases to be. They have to band together to stay alive, discover what they mean to each other, why they’re important, and how to stop the Hunter and save the universe.
Triage holds personal significance for Sevy, who uses the narrative to explore the seismic shifts he encountered throughout his adulthood. Sevy began his professional journey crunching numbers in a cubicle as a finance manager at a major bank before finding release in sequential art. More recently, he reevaluated his fundamental religious upbringing, enduring “a painfully difficult process that left me with no sense of self, identity, worth, anything. I had to build a new identity and life from scratch, basically.”
Sevy navigates that mercurial sense of identity and rebirth through his trio of protagonists, while also injecting heart-pounding action.
Evie Pierce – a dedicated nurse – awakens to an unfamiliar world alongside two strangers—one, a young and snarky superhero; the other, a hardened rebel military commander of a post-apocalyptic world. When a mysterious figure begins to hunt them down, the three women must work together to survive, discover why they were assembled, and how their survival is the key to saving all existence.
Written and illustrated by veteran creator Phillip Sevy, Triage is a five-part sci-fi epic that explores the idea of how we measure up when standing beside heroes and legends.
Sevy wanted to go big and personal with his first creator-owned book. He’s not only writer, but penciling, inking, and coloring the comics. Lettering is being handled by Frank Cvetkovic. The series, at its core, is about “discovering one’s identity amidst the chaos and enormities of the world around you.”
Triage #1 (of five) goes on sale September 4, 2019.
