Chapterhouse Publishing has announced that Brooklyn Gladiator – Volume Zero will be released on April 11, 2018. The forthcoming release has been described as “the sci-fi lovechild of Orwell, Huxley, and stoner conspiracy theories, knitted together by the mad and ingenious mind of Dan Fogler.”
Update: Artist Simon Bisley will be joining the team for Brooklyn Gladiator – Volume One and not (as previously mentioned) Volume Zero.
Chapterhouse has an interesting selection of comic books, which is why I’m looking forward to the upcoming release of Dan Fogler’s (Moon Lake, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Balls Of Fury) work.
“This is a world of more crust than pizza,” says Fogler. “More filter than cigarette, more commercials than television. More lies than truth.”
Joined by Andrew Harrison, Ben McCool, and artist Tom Hodges (Star Wars), with cover art by Glenn Fabry (Preacher), Brooklyn Gladiator is “a vivid, violent, and frightening glimpse into a fictional future that feels all too familiar, a future we may find ourselves sleepwalking into if we’re not careful.”
Here’s the official synopsis:
John Miller is public enemy number one, fighting nanite-enhanced maniacs in the underground gladiator circuit and selling bootleg drugs that undercut the government’s own brand. Now John is developing uncanny psychic powers that allow him to bypass the state’s tech and tap into ancient knowledge. As he sets out to dismantle the machines that run his world, he’ll come to a completely new understanding of the concept of civilization.
Jay Baruchel, CCO of Chapterhouse, was the one who originally approached Fogler to join the company’s roster. “Dan first pitched me this idea years ago and I’ve been waiting eagerly for it ever since. I knew Chapterhouse had to put it out,” said Baruchel. He described the story as “Iron edged, subversive, and packing one a hell of a punch.”
Baruchel then brought the idea of having Fogler join to Fadi Hakim, the founder of Chapterhouse. “We’re thrilled to have Dan on board and can’t wait for more!” said Hakim.
Chapterhouse will also be releasing Brooklyn Gladiator – Volume One and an omnibus with never-seen-before stories of Fogler’s Hitchcockian horror Moon Lake later this year. Artist Simon Bisley will be joining the team for Brooklyn Gladiator – Volume One.
