Road to San Diego Announcement #7
The seventh announcement from BOOM! Studios in their Road to San Diego campaign features a new original series from Phillip Kennedy Johnson (Last Sons of America) and new artist Jonas Scharf.
WARLORDS of APPALACHIA tells the story of the simmering tensions of a range of current issues, including religious liberties, gun control, and international concerns, boil over at the same time with a new president at the helm, causing a second U.S. Civil War. The New Confederacy is crushed but Kentucky holds out, not recognizing U.S. sovereignty. It is during this tense situation that Chess, the 13-year-old son of Kade Mercer—a mechanic, former National Guard medic, and former MMA fighter—is captured by forces sent by U.S. President Roth, causing Kade to rise up and become the first feudal warlord of Appalachia.
The cover to Warlords of Appalachia #1 by Massimo Carnevale (Aliens: Defiance) is featured above, along with character designs by Scharf below.
