ABERRANT -Season Two #1 is a five-issue miniseries which continues from 2018’s blockbuster first season’s five-issue miniseries. Don’t sleep on this title! The writing, the artwork, the pacing, and narrative are amazing on so many levels.

Season 2 starts with the realization that Cordrey was a patsy, and David’s men were actually killed as part of a vast government/military conspiracy. The nasty second season twist? If David is going to peel back the layers of said conspiracy, he’s going need Cordrey’s help.

“Season 2 plays like an edgy ‘80s buddy cop movie,” says Grant. “If you look at it under a microscope, you’ll definitely spot some of that Lethal Weapon48 Hours, and Beverly Hills Cop DNA. David and Cordrey HATE each other with an unrivaled passion, but they kind of NEED each other. They are forced to walk through these next five issues hand-in-sweaty-hand. It’s almost never pretty, but it’s almost always wicked fun.”

What the hip kids are saying about Aberrant:

“Go home, other comics people. Rylend Grant and
Zsombor Huszka just killed the game.”
(Charles Pulliam-Moore – i09)

Aberrant offers an intense, near-cinematic reading experience that
incites excitement and inspires interest for issues to come.”
(Charlie Chipman – The Brazen Bull)

Aberrant flat-out works. You have visceral action scenes. Personalities practically ooze out of the page. Honestly, this is the kind of storytelling that the big publishers are missing.”
(David Gladman – Big Comic Page)

“A bleak, dangerous, and serious story with a lot at stake. If you like revenge tales, military thrillers, and superheroes, Aberrant has it all.”
(Enrique Rea – Spartantown)

Aberrant is a game-changer at Action Lab: Danger Zone. You’ll become captivated almost immediately. The creative team put together one of the most seamless, cohesive, and dynamic collaborations I’ve seen this year on the indie scene.”
(Jason Bennett – PopCultHQ)
