Aftershock Comics is stepping into the world of espionage as with the new series Red Atlantis which explores the confusion that is the state of politics with a dash of mind control thrown in the mix.
The series, written by Stephanie Phillips (Artemis and the Assassin, Butcher of Paris) with art by Robert Carey (James Bond), is a timely tale that explores what happens when a series of violent crime investigations that occur during a U.S. election. Authorities soon find themselves dealing with Russian terrorists and a journalism student who has uncovered far more than she ever expected.
Phillips told The Hollywood Reporter about the new series:
“Red Atlantis was actually created by Jan Neumann, a former intelligence officer in Russia’s Federal Security Service, who, after defecting to the U.S. with his wife in 2008, Jan worked with the FBI to find and apprehend European mobsters. Red Atlantis is Jan’s brainchild and born from a lot of his own experiences, as well as the history of the U.S. and Russia’s tense relationship.”
“The series a lot of familiar themes — espionage, politics, Russia/US tension — but the story brings a supernatural element that is actually steeped in history. Add to that Jan Neumann bringing his life experiences and expertise to this story, and I think our creative team was able to accomplish something really unique.”
Covers for the first issue include art from Robert Hack (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) and Tim Bradstreet (The Punisher).
