“EVIL EMPIRE #2 reaching a second print is a special benchmark for a series that is garnering a ton of critical acclaim for us,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “Max has created a charged and powerful story that asks the hard questions about morality and its place in politics. He gives us a view of how a society could crumble and how a true evil empire rises. What’s even more exciting? The story is barely getting started.”
In EVIL EMPIRE #2, the sands are shifting in America’s public consciousness. One action has torn the country apart in a debate over the meaning of right and wrong, and Reese is not about to stand by as the American people support the rantings of a mad man. But how far will people go to take a stand for what they believe in?
