BOOM! Studios today unveiled a first look at LOW ROAD WEST #1 (JUL181362), kicking off a new five issue limited series from Eisner Award-nominated writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson (The Power of The Dark Crystal, Aquaman), artist Flaviano (I Am Groot, Spider-Man/Deadpool) and colorist Miquel Muerto about five teenage refugees trying to survive the exodus from the war-torn East Coast to the sanctuary of San Francisco.
When the young refugees are stranded in an irradiated Oklahoma wasteland, they take shelter in a ghost town that is much more than it seems. The strange, unnatural threats they face there will make them question what they think they know about death, about reality, and especially about family as they learn to rely on each other to survive.
“LOW ROAD WEST is a love letter to the journey we’ve all experienced as unsure teenagers, namely how sometimes it can feel like it’s the end of the world. Except this time, it literally might just be,” said Eric Harburn, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Phillip, Flaviano, Miquel, and Jim have created a diverse cast of characters who not only have to find a way to survive the dangers lurking for them on the open road…but also find a way to survive each other.”
