Preview: Brass Sun #1
Next month Rebellion is unveiling their first ever mini-series in American format – Ian Edginton and INJ Culbard’s clockpunk masterpiece Brass Sun.
Rebellion already had to boost the print run for issue #1 of Brass Sun on pre-orders alone and it follows the success of the one-shot DREDD movie sequel comic book, DREDD: UNDERBELLY, which sold out before hitting shelves in January and had to go to a second printing, which has also sold out.
Brass Sun has been an instant hit with 2000 AD readers thanks to its unique concept, vast imaginative landscapes, and fascinating strong female lead character. Edginton and Culbard have created an on-going series that readers of Saga, Hinterkind, and Prophet will find intriguing.
The Orrery is a vast clockwork solar system where planets whirl on vast metal arms and the sun of cogs is worshipped as a god. But the sun is dying, the planets are freezing one by one, and cults burn as heretics those who warn of the danger. To save her home, young Wren knows she must first escape it and find the key to restart the sun.
Beginning at the end of May, this incredible new monthly series from the bestselling artist of New Deadwardians and the hit writer of Scarlet Traces and Hinterkind will include 30 pages of strip art in every issue. The first issue is available to order now through Diamond, using code MAR141340.
