Death cults and depravity descend in post-apocalyptic ‘Death Orb’

New title from Ryan Ferrier, Alejandro Aragon and Chris O’Halloran follows a “heartbroken, axe-wielding wasteland survivor in search of his wife and son.”

Writer Ryan Ferrier (D4VE) artist Alejandro Aragon (Robocop) and colorist Chris O’Halloran (Ice Cream Man) are headed back to the future — a post-apocalyptic, mutant infested, nightmarish future in Death Orb, a new miniseries from Dark Horse Comics.

“We’re going off the rails with this one,” Ferrier said on Twitter.

Here’s how Dark Horse describes the book:

Follow Rider, a heartbroken, axe-wielding wasteland survivor in search of his wife and son as he cuts a bloody path across a war-torn country in the throes of a mysterious death cult led by Father, a demented idealist determined to rebuild the world in his image through the use of the deadly titular “death orb.” Along the way, Rider will face biker assassins, mech-suited mutants, and unspeakable depravity. Death Orb is a full throttle, no prisoners taken, ultraviolent tale of vigilante justice served hot!

“Justice served hot!” Who can’t get behind that? The new title launches in October.
