“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:
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.
