The comiXology Originals line will expand in September with four new titles, starting first with Breaklands by Justin Jordan, Tyasseta, Sarah Stern and Rachel Deering.
The five-issue series is set 150 years in the future in a world where everyone has powers except Kasa Fain, who is desperate to find her recently kidnapped brother.
“We wanted to do a book about what would happen if a lot of people suddenly got a lot of power,” Jordan said. “It was important that the world didn’t look like what readers have seen in traditional post apocalypse stories which, generally, ends up deserts and barren landscapes. Instead,the environment has had a chance to bounce back. And there’s plenty of high action, colorful new cultures and weird creatures.”
“When you think of the post apocalypse, you usually don’t think of bright colors and high adventure,” said Chip Mosher, comiXology’s Head of Content. “Breaklands is a fun, fast-paced story chock full of great characters. Tyasseta’s unique style and Sarah Stern’s colors really showcase the new cultures, weird creatures and world building Jordan has dreamed up.”

Breaklands will be followed by three other new series from comiXology Originals in September: Field Tripping by James Asmus, Jim Festante and José García; The Black Ghost by Alex Segura, Monica Gallagher and George Kambadais; and Quarter Killer by Vita Ayala and Danny Lore.
