ComixTribe wants to get great books in the hands of great readers. To that end, they're working hard to bring the four-part science fiction adventure series Exit Generation by Sam Read and Caio Oliveira (with covers by Ramon Villalobos) to the direct market. During an initial self-published release, Exit Generation spawned a strong cult following on the UK independent comic scene. In addition to four covers by Villalobos, the direct market release will feature a special variant, ComixTribe’s first ever set of four connecting covers by Joe Mulvey.
“Both Caio and I are delighted that ComixTribe saw EXIT GENERATION fitting into their excellent slate of titles,” said writer Sam Read. “After the excellent reception for FIND, I’m excited to collaborate with them on taking this series worldwide.”
Set in a near future, where a sudden depopulation of Earth has resulted in a comfortable but dull utopia, EXIT GENERATION follows a bored punk named Jack, who is thrust suddenly into the unlikely role of savior when hungry aliens snatch his nearest and dearest. The first issue of this monthly series lands in comic shops and on Comixology in September.
"With EXIT GENERATION, Sam did just about everything right," said ComixTribe publisher Tyler James. "He put in the work, assembled an incredible team, made a great series, and then went out and sold it one copy at a time. After the surprise sell out success of FIND earlier this year, it was a no-brainer to work with Sam again to bring EXIT GENERATION to the wider audience it deserves."
