Fifteen years ago, our world was overrun by creatures of myth: orcs, dragons, and other nameless horrors that threw the entire planet into total chaos. Today, the shattered remnants of civilization must fight tooth and nail to survive in a deadly new era of violence and mayhem.
Coming in September from Image Comics – The Realm, is a new ongoing series diving into the grit and chaos of a post-apocalyptic world, from co-creators Seth M. Peck (X-Men) and Jeremy Haun (The Beauty) team up with colorist Nick Filardi and letterer Thomas Mauer.
“Creator-owned comics are the only place you can tell stories like The Realm exactly as you want them to be told,” said Peck. “You can have an F-14 take on a dragon in the skies over Chicago, or have a horde of orcs lay siege to the White House without worrying about special effects or budgets. At the same time, you can tell very intimate, emotional, and human stories and develop complicated, meaningful characters over the course of time. With The Realm, Jeremy and I wanted to blend all the genres we enjoy, mix in plenty of action, and give readers something unique and exciting to look forward to each month.”
The Realm will have two covers, Cover A by Jeremy Haun and Nick Filardi and Cover B by Tony Moore.
“The Realm is the book I’ve wanted to do my entire life,” said Haun. “It’s the perfect mash of everything I love to draw. Post-apocalyptic landscapes, dark magical citadels, machine gun-toting barbarians, unnamable horrors, DRAGONS—it doesn’t get more fun than this.”
The Realm #1 will launch on Wednesday, September 13th.
