Skybound Offer Up An Extended First Look At Graphic Novel Collection ‘Heart Attack’
by Olly MacNamee
Having already announced the conclusion to the decade-old comic book series, Heart Attack by writer/creator Shawn Kittelsen (Injustice 2, Mortal Kombat 11), artist/creator Eric Zawadzki (House of El) and colorist Mike Spicer (Stillwater) in a new collection, featuring six all-new chapters, Skybound now share a first look.
“Gene therapy has saved Americans from disease—only to give birth to Variants: people with powers so unique, the government denies their human rights. But a new rebellion begins when Charlie North and Jill Kearney learn their instant attraction unlocks powers of mass destruction and forces them to question how far they should go to topple the system.”
Here’s more on why this book is so prescient, from writer, Shawn Kittelsen:
“Back when we started work on this book, we had no idea how timely it would become. Pandemic. Mass protests. Gun violence. Rising tides of authoritarianism. But for all those nightmares come to life, this book also has strength, courage, and love. If the troubling times that Jill and Charlie live in seem all too familiar, their improbable romance is our reminder that as long as we remember how to love, there will always be hope for tomorrow.”
Eric Zawadzki added:
“I’m very excited to be presenting this Heart Attack collection, combining the first 6 issues with the never-before-seen final 6 issues all in one complete package,” said Eric Zawadzki. “Everyone on the team put their all into this comic that I strongly believe will resonate with readers who enjoy epic love stories.”
Heart Attack OGN will be available on Wednesday, September 27th, 2023, and everywhere books are sold on Tuesday, October 3, 2023 from Skybound/Image Comics.
