“We’re in an environment where war has been contained and privatized, it’s a spectator sport where the wins and losses are publicly tracked and have positive and negative effects on the sponsor nations. A lot of it centers on Satta Flynn, who is basically the perpetual conquering hero. And we’re gonna follow him and see what happens both to him and the system that supports him when he loses.
Buy our book. Nobody’s ever seen Esad at this level. Nic Klein is painting his art and it’s just overwhelmingly fantastic. Come out and play with us. This is the kinda comics we all wanted to make when we were kids.” – Ivan Brandon
