Children of the pre-apocalypse are anything but SHELTERED
November 15, 2013
Critically-acclaimed story of kids taking survival into their own hands available in trade paperback
In a pre-apocalyptic world where any day could be humanity’s last, the youth of Safe Haven make a decision based on self-preservation. With limited resources and the end of the world swiftly approaching, the kids band together to kill off their parents and take society into their own hands. The first five issues of Ed Brisson (COMEBACK, Secret Avengers) and Johnnie Christmas's (Continuum: The War Files) SHELTERED, an unnerving series about what happens when logistics of survival trump empathy, will be collected in trade paperback form on December 11.
Praise for SHELTERED:
"Sheltered #1 is a solid debut, one that should have readers back next month for the next installment. I'll definitely come back for more.” --Greg McElhatton, Comic Book Resources
“Sheltered #1 begins to prove its true worth when it tears away from the obvious comparisons and the starting-point premise that has been well-tread in modern science fiction and horror.” --Vince Ostrowski, Multiversity Comics
“Depending how they handle things, this could easily turn into the epic that The Walking Dead has in a post-apocalyptic setting.” --Stuart Conover, ScienceFiction.com
“With its startling conclusion and inventive set-up, the team behind Sheltered is off to a stellar start. It's getting harder and harder to put a fresh spin on end-of-the-world narratives, but Brisson and Christmas have made it look easy.” --Melissa Grey, IGN
“It's rare when a new comic book series can surprise you… Sheltered starts off with a different take on the survival stories we've seen many times. If that wasn't enough, Ed Brisson completely pulls the rug out from underneath your feet. Getting something new and different is such a treat.” --Tony Guerrero, Comic Vine
“Sheltered #1 leaves readers with a surprising twist at the last page. I can't wait to see what happens in the second issue.” --Jorge Solis, Bloody Disgusting
“Sheltered is a gut check. Brisson and Christmas have decided to come out swinging. A great read.” --Iann Robinson, Crave Online
The first volume of SHELTERED collects issues 1-5 of the series and hits stores on December 11, 2013 for $9.99. Pre-orders can be placed using Diamond Code OCT130500.
