Panacea Cryonics promised a life after death, by freezing the heads of their clients and reviving them in the near future, when technology would guarantee them a life free of disease and trouble. However, as clients are finally revived, they learn this corporate pitch was too good to be true – instead of stepping into a life of their dreams, they awaken into a never-ending nightmare.
The world is at war – and this recently revived group of every day people are handed a gun, body armor and an ultimatum. They must fight in this war, against unknown opponents and horrors, in order to secure their place in a brave new world that doesn’t want them around.
And as these normal people survive wave after wave of technologically advanced horrors, they soon realize the answers to their questions are no comfort, and the future that they wanted might never be in sight.
From Christopher Sebela (Blue Beetle, Kiss/Vampirella, Evolution) and Hayden Sherman (The Few, John Carter: The End) comes an uncompromising science-fiction epic, as violent as it is beautiful. COLD WAR Vol 1 contains the entire pulse-pounding first arc, issues #1-5.
“Sebela turns the common tropes of war fiction on their head and, in the surreal and unsettling future built by Hayden Sherman’s art, creates a core cast of characters made relatable by their discomfort and their longing for the world and families they’ve left behind.” – C.K. Stewart, NEWSARAMA
