Robert Venditti of Flash and Green Lantern fame will team with co-writer Brockton McKinney (Jenny Zero) and artist Dalts Dalton (Heavy Metal) for Savage Squad 6, the story of an “elite team of post-apocalyptic soldiers undergoing the deadliest mission of their lives.”
They’re joined by colorist Geraldo Filho and letterer Micah Myers on the four-issue miniseries coming from Dark Horse Comics.
“Brock and I have been writing together for years, and we’ve been friends even longer,” Venditti said. “For the first McDitti collaboration, we wanted to bring all the fun and abandon of ‘80s-‘90s action films to comics. Savage Squad 6 is everything we love about explosive firefights, impossible odds, and heroes who never say die.”
Here’s how Dark Horse describes the miniseries:
The year is 2037. A brutal world war has left humanity in shambles. The remnants of civilization are tracked down and systematically eliminated by The Scourge. For the people of the central colonies, only one hope remains, an elite team of warrior women deployed into the deadliest location on the planet: Savage Squad 6!
The first issue arrives on June 28.
