For those itching for a new post-apocalyptic survival story, you’re in luck: Low Road West is the newest comic limited series from Boom! Studios, which will have its first of five issues debuting on September 12. The series chronicles five teenagers trying to survive their trek to the sanctuary of San Francisco after the East Coast is torn from wars and conflict.
When the young refugees are stranded in an irradiated Oklahoma wasteland, they take shelter in a ghost town that is much more than it seems. The strange, unnatural threats they face there will make them question what they think they know about death, about reality, and especially about family as they learn to rely on each other to survive.
“LOW ROAD WEST is a love letter to the journey we’ve all experienced as unsure teenagers, namely how sometimes it can feel like it’s the end of the world. Except this time, it literally might just be,” said Eric Harburn, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Phillip, Flaviano, Miquel, and Jim have created a diverse cast of characters who not only have to find a way to survive the dangers lurking for them on the open road…but also find a way to survive each other.”
