Gerry Duggan, David O’Sullivan and Jordie Bellaire are imagining a world without a secure internet in Analog, a new series from Image Comics coming next year.
“David O’Sullivan is lushly rendering a world that is chaotic, beautiful and repulsive, sometimes on the same page,” said Duggan, writer of Guardians of the Galaxy, Last Christmas and many other comics. “He and Jordie Bellaire are the perfect collaborators to leap over this post-fascist tale of the great crash of the information age.”
After the security of the internet crumbles, the world changes overnight, with governments and corporations having to rely on archaic paper, of all things (what’s that again?), to transfer state secrets. (Actually that sounds like something they should be doing now). The series stars Jack McGinnis, “a hard-drinking, hard headed former member of the US intelligence community who now earns a living as a ‘ledger man.'”
“Gerry creates a world where all hope is lost and yet a glimmer exists in the very person who tipped it into the abyss,” said O’Sullivan. “He makes you care about humanity when it’s at its lowest. There’s also lots of violence, the main character is essentially a walking punch bag!”
