Drifter Reveals Early Artwork


Ivan Brandon and Nic Klein have a reputation as a fantastic comic creating duo. It's a reputation that engenders a great amount of respect from industry peers and readers. And Image Comics is slated to publish a new book from them called Drifter, launching on November 12.

In Drifter, mankind has spread across the universe in a frantic rush to survive and has colonized and strip-mined countless planets in the process. Abram Pollux barely survives a crash landing on Ouro, a lawless backwater world where life is cheap. This world’s unique properties set the stage for a story that combines the dark wonder of a strange and alien landscape with the struggles of an abandoned and lawless frontier town.

Drifter #1 will be available on November 12 and the Final Order Cutoff deadline for retailers is 10/20. Full press release below.
