The Hollows reads like the eco-friendly version of the Jetsons. When an unnamed disaster destroyed the world, the scientists of Japan came up with a solution: create giant super trees and move the entire country above the toxic clouds, cities and all. These trees are the only protection the rest of humanity has from the toxic cloud. What the trees cannot protect the humans from is the Hollows, the monsters from below the clouds.
The protagonist of the Hollows is Kobayashi, a scientist/explorer who makes his living spelunking into the toxic cloud to find remnants of the old world. On one trip, he discovers the unexpected.
The Hollows is the premiere of a wildly original new world realized in the vivid, expressive tones that can only emanate from Sam Kieth’s hands. Planned for four issues, THE HOLLOWS has been in the works between Chris Ryall and Sam Kieth for some time now.
A unique, mysterious take on the post-apocalyptic yarn, the Hollowsis sure to fly off the shelves like so many of its winged denizens, so don’t miss out this December!
The Hollows #1 (of 4) is 32 pages, full color, and will be in stores 12/19/12.
