Image Comics has announced All Against All, a new five-issue miniseries from writer Alex Paknadel (Giga), artist/colorist Caspar Wijngaard (Home Sick Pilots), and letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou (Rogues’ Gallery). Published as part of the Syzygy imprint, the miniseries will “offer a uniquely harrowing and vividly illustrated tale and launch in December.”

All Against AllHere’s how the publisher describes the miniseries:

All Against All is focused on a race of otherworldly conquerors in pursuit of an especially lethal predator… man. The series is set in the distant future. Earth is long gone, but a race of alien conquerors known as “the Operators” have preserved its most savage animals in an artificial jungle environment they barely understand.

With no bodies of their own, the Operators move from world to world, harvesting bodies for the organic exosuits they use to wage their endless wars. Ignored and underestimated by his captors is the habitat’s sole human specimen, Helpless. However, when their efforts to find and harvest an apex predator intensify, he gives them far more than they bargained for.

In an exclusive on the announcement at AIPT, editor/Syzygy co-head Chris Ryall explained what makes this series unique:

All Against All continues our efforts at Syzygy to produce compelling books with fantastic high-concepts as envisioned by some of the most talented and inventive creators working today. Alex and Caspar weave together elements of high adventure, horror, and science-fiction into a wildly thrilling series, and the added visual flair and skill that Hassan brings to each page only completes the story in such an exciting way.”

Paknadel added:

“Heady survival horror is very much my jam, so I couldn’t be more thrilled to be making one with the great Caspar Wijngaard, whose work I’ve admired for as long as I’ve worked in comics, and Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou, one of the most diligent and formally inventive letterers working today. Add the stewardship of the visionary Chris Ryall into the mix and I’m sure readers will agree that All Against All is a very special book indeed.”

Wijngaard likewise said:

“When Alex first floated the idea of a series that’s ‘Alien, but the human is the xenomorph,’ I was instantly onboard. It’s been such an awesome challenge to bring these aliens to life, relying on their fear as a rogue human stalks the dark station. Alex is a fiercely intelligent writer with a brilliant knack for dark, nuanced humour, All Against All promises to deliver fast, smart and brutal story. Don’t miss out!”

Each issue will feature covers not only by Wijngaard, but also by an array of variant covers, with the first issue sporting variants by Sean Phillips, Martin Simmonds (1:25 copy incentive), and Christian Ward (1:50 copy incentive).
