    Earlier this morning via press release, Image Comics announced a new series entitled “The Warning.” Written and illustrated by Edward Laroche, the book will be a high-concept military sci-fi series about a massive alien machine slowly materializing over the West Coast. The mysterious nature of the machine sparks the deployment of Gladiator Two-Six, a combat brigade equipped with sophisticated weaponry and tasked with stopping any extraterrestrial threat.

    “I’m psyched to be a part of the most interesting and influential creative space for American independent comics,” Laroche said. “I just want to add a chorus, or maybe an opera, to the art form that has meant everything to me. ‘The Warning’ is the first act of that opera.” A veteran storyboard artist who has worked for Sony, Warner Bros. and Cartoon Network, Laroche is also the creator of several indie comic books, including “Almighty” and “Bad Summer.”

    “The Warning” #1 is set to release November 28th. Here’s the press release with a four-page preview of the first issue:


    Press release:
    THE WARNING INJECTS POIGNANCY INTO HIGH-CONCEPT MILITARY SCI-FI ACTION
    PORTLAND, OR, 08/16/2018 — Writer/artist Edward Laroche (Almighty, Bad Summer) will launch an all-new military science fiction series, THE WARNING, this November from Image Comics.

    An enormous machine is slowly materializing in a major metropolitan city on the West Coast. No one knows who sent it, or why — except, perhaps, for the malevolent beings gliding silently through the inky vastness of space toward Earth.

    In response, a joint multinational combat brigade called Gladiator Two-Six is deployed. Outfitted with next-generation military science and weapons, they’re tasked with stopping any extraterrestrial threat that emerges.

    “I’m psyched to be a part of the most interesting and influential creative space for American independent comics,” said Laroche. “I just want to add a chorus, or maybe an opera, to the art form that has meant everything to me. THE WARNING is the first act of that opera.”

    THE WARNING #1 will hit stores on Wednesday, November 28th.
