BOOM! Studios is pleased to announce the June debut of a new sci-fi thriller entitled, Broken World, a new sci-fi thriller. Frank J. Barbiere (Five Ghosts, Avengers World) and Christopher Peterson (Grindhouse, Mayday) brings us a survival adventure series that explores the lives of people left behind on the last days of Earth. The story will specifically follow Elena Marlowe, whose family was approved by the government to escape to a giant spaceship headed to another planet before a meteor hits Earth. The only problem is, her application was denied due to her mysterious past. With the meteor fast approaching, Elena tries desperately to find a way to fake her way onto the last ship or else be left behind to die with the rest of Earth’s rejected.
BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon shared his perspective on the comic by saying,
It’s hard not to fall in love with a well-crafted survival story. From zombie viruses to post-apocalyptic wastelands, we all love to cheer for the last survivors. For Broken World, Frank and Christopher have created an intense, riveting story about a woman who chooses to live on in a world facing an extinction-level event from the stars.
There’s something that will always be fascinating about stories that play with the question, “what would happen if Earth would no longer be safe for us?” It looks like Barbiere and Peterson have a fresh perspective on what that might be like. If you’re a fan of comics that fit into a similar category, Broken World is said to be perfect for fans of Y: The Last Man or The Massive. Broken World #1 will arrive in comic shops on June 3rd.
