Rick Remender Hits A New Low - His New Comic With X-Force Teammate Greg Tocchini Announced At Image Expo

Rick Remender and Greg Tocchini, who last worked on Marvel’s Uncanny X-Force together, are announcing a new Image comic book at Image Expo today.

It’s called Low.

It is a sci-fi comic, set on a solar radiation-battered Earth, with humanity relocated under the sea. And a probe returning with information about a possible alternative planet to live on. But it’s crash landed on land, rather than the ocean. And the remaining warring human communities are in a race to get the information first across the most deadly of lands…

But which came first? The science or the art? I asked Remender from his hotel room,

The idea for Low was born a number of years ago as I was reading an issue of National Geographic that was discussing the inevitable destruction of our solar system as the sun will inevitably expand and consume everything. I realized that this was a fact I had become aware of when I was about seven or eight years of age. And it reminded me of all of the scenarios that I imagined as a kid revolving around mans struggle to survive as the sun expanded. I remember it made me think how insignificant and useless every single thing we do is if one day the sun is going to consume everything. This series revolves around people facing that dilemma and finding the strength to remain optimistic throughout.

Remender has had strong success at Image Comics with the launches of Black Science and Deadly Class. Looks like he’s about to add an easy third to that.
