Helena Crash Comic Series Crashes Scene With Brand New Collection
Nov 29, 2017
In a future where coffee is illegal, Helena is a courier, delivering black market goods to anyone who can afford her services. From the white hot creative team of Samurai Jack: Quantum Jack, Fabian Rangel Jr (‘Namwolf) and Warwick Johnson-Cadwell (Mr. Higgins Comes Home with Mike Mignola) present a brand new vision of the future.
“I love coffee. I drink a lot of coffee, and I actually can’t write without it nowadays (as bad as that sounds),” says Rangel. “It is the fuel for the storytelling fire in my brain. When I read that article about coffee becoming scarce, my imagination automatically started wondering about a new prohibition era, and how wild it would be in a sci-fi world.”
Interpreting this vibrant, futuristic world is no small feat but Johnson-Cadwell was up to the task.
“The city, the characters, everything is buzzing with life,” said Johnson-Cadwell. “It’s like a giant amusement arcade/carnival/funfair, and noisy as hell. I wanted to get across the wild energy I got from Fabian’s writing. I wanted to make sure I got the excitement I felt reading his scripts onto each page. So much damn fun.”
When Rojo, a ruthless crime boss, asks Helena to assassinate his rival, the alien mobster known as White Demon, Helena finds herself in the middle of a gang war! To survive, Helena must use all of her skills, and seek help from her friends to stay ahead of her enemies!
