Marcos Prior and Eisner-nominated artist David Rubín (The Hero, Rumble, Battling Boy: The Rise of Aurora West) weave a politically satirical look at democracy today through the lense of hyper-violence and explosive action.
Here’s a look at the cover, the storyline, and preview pages for this week’s new hardcover release from BOOM! Studios on New Comic Book Day! #NCBD
BOOM! STUDIOS COMICS
New Release for the week of May 29th, 2019
The Grand Abyss Hotel OGN HC
Cover Artist: David Rubín
Imagine a world overrun by big business and “fake news” via the social media machine . . . In The Grand Abyss Hotel neoliberalism has become a state religion, while the citizens quietly and then not-so-quietly rebel, giving way to violence on the streets and sowing chaos.
A masked vigilante takes on the role of hero to battle politicians, the erosion of democracy, and social media. After the fires burn low and the dust settles, social order returns. Or does it?
