The ongoing series from Image Comics will kick off in September.
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.”

“Brian introduced me to this lesser-known Jules Verne story of dastardly brigands and survival on a lonely, windswept island,” said Hine. “We did the obvious thing and transformed it into an epic science-fiction tale of space piracy, wormholes, galaxy-spanning conflict and a glitchy but lovable robot called Moses.”
