PORTLAND, Ore. 9.9.2020 — Readers who found themselves gripped by the apocalyptic adventure of Robert Kirkman’s THE WALKING DEAD and who were moved by the emotion in Cormac McCarthy's THE ROAD will not want to miss Jared Muralt's forthcoming original graphic novel, THE FALL, VOL. 1. The book will hit shelves in February 2021 from Image Comics.

After just losing his wife, one father will have to face a world in freefall; shaken to its core by an economic, social, political and health crisis without precedent. Facing seemingly unreal and very unexpected dangers, he will do whatever it takes to protect his loved ones in a country on the brink of collapse. In this internationally acclaimed series, Jared Muralt not only tells the story of one family struggling to survive, but also questions the very reasons that brought mankind to this apocalypse.

"By the time I wrote The Fall I never would’ve imagined finding myself in front of empty food shelves at the grocery store just a couple years later," said Muralt.

THE FALL, VOL. 1 (ISBN: 978-1-5343-1838-0) will be available on Wednesday, March 17 and in bookstores on Tuesday, March 23. It can be pre-ordered at your local comic book shop or independent bookstore (via Bookshop or IndieBound), or it can be pre-ordered on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, and Indigo.

THE FALL, VOL. 1 will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
