Saladin Ahmed and Dave Acosta bring their digital ongoing series Terrorwar to the print medium and Image Comics this April.
TerrorWar was previously published via Ahmed’s “Copper Bottle” newsletter, which the writer describes as “…a tribute to the 1980s cinematic sci-fi I grew up with—big guns! cyberpunk sprawl! eerie lighting! badass dialogue!—but it also tries to look forward, telling that sort of story in a 21st-century way in the aftermath of the War on Terror.
Ahmed also calls working with Acosta “…an incredible treat. His art goes from war comic action to weird horror to intimate human moments without missing a beat. And we couldn’t be more excited to have Image bringing this to comic shops!”
Acosta says that “Terrorwar is the comic I’ve been waiting my whole career to draw—far out sci-fi, terrifying creatures, social commentary, and a bit of humor. I’m super thankful to be partnering with Saladin again, and I think fans will be shocked when they see what we’ve been cooking.”
