Image Comics has announced that critically lauded writer and playwright Sean Lewis (Saints) and red-hot artist Hayden Sherman are teaming up for a brand-new limited dystopian maxi-series The Few, which is set to get underway in January.
“I couldn’t be prouder of this book,” said Lewis. “A strong female lead. Survivalists. Extremists and a recognizable American future. It’s a total journey, and Hayden’s art is unreal. He’s a star in the making.”
“This is the kind of story I dream of: strange characters, strange places, strange events, but all grounded in a haunting reality,” added aid Sherman. “In this book Sean gives just that, and a whole world of characters for me to play with. It’s a story well-suited for the times.”
THE FEW combines the action of Mad Max with a Station Eleven sensibility in this sci-fi series for mature readers. In a dystopian future, two survivalist brothers stumble across an unlikely sight: a woman asleep in the woods holding nothing but a gun and a baby wearing a gas mask. Bent on lending her their help, they find that nothing is as it seems: betrayals, secrets, and revelations abound in the fight for what’s left of America.
