by Olly MacNamee

Writer Chuck Austen and artist Patrick Olliffe along with colour artist Lee Loughridge, letterer Jodi Wynnehave a new collaborative comic book coming out via comiXology Originals.

Edgeworld is a gritty, sexy, potent adventure series that’s part science fiction, part detective series, and part western.

Wanna know more? Here’s Austen to elaborate on this genre mash-up:
“Edgeworld is the place people need to go in order to get somewhere else, but not to stay. It’s a temporary rest stop, a place to blow off some steam on a long journey between the stars. But no one stays on Pala unless the rest of the universe is done with them. No one, that is except for the oppressed Palans and their lone supporter, Killian Jess.”
Edgeworld #1 will be available upon release, at no additional cost, for members of Amazon Prime, Kindle Unlimited, and comiXology Unlimited, and for purchase on Kindle and comiXology and out September 15th. Here’s a preview of the first issue and more on the plot:
“In Edgeworld, Killian Jess is the magistrate and a former United Authority soldier who knows the system, upholds the law, and delivers the verdict—with a vengeance. Alongside native Palan Cheela, Killian fights to protect the planet Pala, a backwater, frontier planet on the edge of known space located beneath a riftgate—the greatest and most valuable discovery in galactic history. Together, the duo must battle alien invasions, military forces, black market traders, otherworldly infestations, drug runners and the disastrous, ecological aftermath of a brutal, planet-wide war, in order to save the world they love.”
