This week, the critically acclaimed comic Calexit arrives in a trade collection from Black Mask Studios. The politically-charged fictional story about the secession of California from the United States is written by Black Mask publisher Matteo Pizzolo, and drawn by Amancay Nahuelpan, colored by Tyler Boss, and lettered by Jim Campbell.
What if a fascist, autocratic President took over the United States? And what if that President lost California, the sixth largest economy on Earth, by nearly 2-to-1…a margin of almost 3 1/2 million votes? What if the day after that President took power, the largest mass demonstration in history occurred, and the state with the largest turnout was California? And then, the following week, two of the largest international airports in the world, California’s LAX and SFO, were blockaded by protesters?
What if California refused to be ruled?
The rest makes for the drama of the complete series which is available now in comic shops.
Here’s our preview of Calexit Volume One, in comic shops this week, and bookstores August 14th, 2018.
