Dark Horse Comics has announced Savage Squad 6, a new sci-fi horror series due out in June. The series comes from co-writers Robert Venditti and Brockton McKinney, artist Dalts Dalton, colorist Geraldo Filho, and letterer Micah Myers. The book follows a team of elite women soldiers in a post-apocalyptic world.
Here’s how Dark Horse describes the series:
The year is 2037. A brutal world war has left humanity in shambles. The remnants of civilization are tracked down and systematically eliminated by The Scourge. For the people of the central colonies, only one hope remains, an elite team of warrior women deployed into the deadliest location on the planet: Savage Squad 6!
The new series is the first Dark Horse Comics work for writer Robert Venditti, and the first with co-writer Brockton McKinney, who previously wrote Jenny Zero with artist Dave Dwonch for the publisher. It’s the first major comics work for artist Dalts Dalton.
In a statement, Venditti described developing the series with McKinney:
“Brock and I have been writing together for years, and we’ve been friends even longer,” says writer Robert Venditti. “For the first McDitti collaboration, we wanted to bring all the fun and abandon of ‘80s-‘90s action films to comics. Savage Squad 6 is everything we love about explosive firefights, impossible odds, and heroes who never say die.”
Look for Savage Squad 6 #1 (of 4) to arrive in stores and digitally on Wednesday, June 28th.
