Iolanda Zanfardino and Elisa Romboli, the creative duo behind last year’s A Thing Called Truth, will re-team for a new ongoing series from Image Comics’ Shadowline imprint.
The Least We Can Do sees the two creators introduce a post-apocalyptic world filled with “fighting, magic, thirst for justice, blood, revenge and many buff women.”
“Like for our previous books, we put our heart and soul into The Least We Can Do,” said Zanfardino. ” This time, we also put some fighting, magic, thirst for justice, blood, revenge, and many buff women into it! This post-apocalyptic dystopian world sprung up inside me, demanding to be narrated. All the characters came alive in my head and, what was particularly exciting with this story, was that the complexity of the plot all came together very naturally for me. Did I love writing this story? Hell yes! I really hope you’ll love reading it!”
Here’s the description from Image:
Mysterious magical power arises from a world nearly destroyed by war. A young woman fights for her ideas of revolution and to build a new society from the debris. Realizing that she can’t do it alone, she has to prove her worth to the Eclipse Rebels to join them against the dreadful Eden Army.
A story of discovering what is right and what love means in a military-occupied and socially oppressed United Kingdom.
“It feels great to finally be able to reveal what we’ve been working on for all these months,” Romboli said. “Drawing The Least We Can Do pages has been an opportunity to work on so many different narrative situations, story moods, and showcase bodies we don’t see often in the media. I’m very proud of how it turned out! I’m sure readers will love all the singular characters of this new world. And I bet they will be looking forward to seeing what happens next!”
Here’s a look at some of those pages:
