In what is being described in the same vein as Blade Runner, The Forever War and Neuromancer, BOOM! Studios will be releasing a new series this week called Turn Coat. Written by Alex Paknadel (Arcadia) and drawn by Artyom Trakhanov (Undertow), the series combines elements of science fiction and detective genres into an exploration of power vacuums and the legacy of oppression.
Paknadel & Trakhanov’s Turncoat #1 (of 4)
Writer: Alex Paknadel
Artist: Artyom Trakhanov
300 years since humanity was brutally subjugated by the alien race known simply as the Management. Two years since these invaders abandoned Earth to return to their home world. Following her participation in the brutal massacre of human-alien hybrids left behind by the Management, resistance fighter Marta Gonzalez declines to join the new human government and starts her own private detective agency instead. Gonzalez is forced to confront her own bloody past and acknowledge the fact that the transition from oppression to emancipation is anything but clean.
