CAL EXIT #1. (Black Mask Comics, May release) Writer: Matteo Pizzolo. Artist: Amancay Nahuelpan. 32 pages. Full color. $3.99 Mature readers.
This one seems to ripped straight from the headlines . . . headlines from another version of Earth that is. Already receiving favorable notice in The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, Hollywood Reporter, Forbes, Comic Book Resources, Bleeding Cool and others, this could be a book to watch. And I suspect it will be seriously under-ordered by comic shops. That’s why you need to pre-order your copy so you don’t miss out. Feast your eyes on this juicy promotional information . . . . .
“What if a fascist, autocratic President took over the United States?
And what if that President lost California, the sixth largest economy on Earth, by nearly 2-to-1 . . . a margin of almost 3.5 million votes?
What if the day after after that President took power, the largest mass demonstration in history occurred, and the state with the largest turnout of protesters was California?
And then, the following week, two of the largest international airports in the world, California’s LAX and SFO, were blockaded by protesters?
What if California refused to be ruled?
From the creators of Young Terrorists, Matteo Pizzolo (Godkiller) and Amancay Nahuelpan (Clandestino), comes this tale of resisting oppression, punching Nazis, protecting each other, kicking ass, and demanding liberty for all.”
