BROOKLYN GLADIATOR
VOLUME ZERO
Story by Dan Fogler
Art by Tom Hodges
Cover by Darick Robertson
Dan Fogler’s newest series headlines Chapterhouse’s 2018 ‘Original Series’ offerings!
BROOKLYN GALDIATOR is set in the year 2033, in a despoiled America where New Yorkers survive on scraps. “This is a world of more crust than pizza,” says Fogler. “More filter than cigarette, more commercials than television. More lies than truth.”
John Miller is an action hero for the ages, a rough-and-ready bad-ass who could drink Han Solo, Jack Burton and John McClain under the table. “He’s a rock & roll kung-fu Robin Hood!” Fogler says. “Dude does parkour and bloody underground MMA cage fighting versus nanite-enhanced maniacs. He’s learning to hone his newfound psychic abilities. Turns out, he’s the one man who can redeem humankind and bring balance back to the Earth.”
BROOKLYN GLADIATOR is a tribute to the comics, films and experiences that have inspired author Dan Fogler. “Imagine if Tarantino directed Akira mixed with the world of Blade Runner,” he says. “Basically, If you love The Matrix, multiple headbutts, 2 a.m. taco carts, Star Wars, sleazy tattoo parlours, weed, ancient aliens, environmentalism, anarchy, massive biceps and hope, then you need to read this!”
Written by Dan Fogler, (creator of MOON LAKE and star of BALLS OF FURY and FANTASTIC BEASTS) With artwork from Glenn Fabry (PREACHER), Tom Hodges (STAR WARS), and Darick Robertson (THE BOYS), this is a comic sure to leave mind-blown readers in its wake!
$9.99 | 6.25/10.18 Full Colour
