Eisner Award-winning American comic book artist and writer Rob Guillory, best known for his acclaimed eight-year run on Image Comics’ New York Times Bestselling Chew, is bringing his trademark style in an all-new series. Today BOOM! Studios announced that Guillory is teaming up with artist Sam Lotfi (Harley Quinn), and colorist Jean-Francois Beaulieu (I Hate Fairyland) or Mosely, brand new five-issue limited series chronicling one man’s attempt to take down the mighty idols of technology that have captivated the world in the near future.
Here’s how the publisher describes the miniseries:
In the hyper-technological world of the later 21st century, Mosely is a bitter old janitor on a mission from a higher power—to unleash holy Hell upon the “too big to fail” Tech Gods. Can one man bring down the corporate powers who’ve used their vast influence to oppress an all too complacent human race (and hopefully win back the favor of his estranged family while he’s at it)? Mosely’s taking up the Holy Hammer and you better believe he’s gonna smash some $h!t until he sets mankind free!
Guillory teased what readers can expect:
“I pictured Mosely as the summer action blockbuster I’ve always wanted to write. But when I put pen to paper, Marvin Mosely had bigger plans. Turns out Mose was such a huge character that this story had to grow to epic proportions just to contain him. He’s maybe the most unlikely savior of the world in comics today. And you’re gonna completely fall in love with the old bastard.”
Sam Lotfi added:
“I’m thrilled to be telling this story with Rob. It’s always a joy to create characters and a world from the ground up and even more fun to watch those characters collide! I found myself making sound effects out loud while drawing this book, that’s how fun the world of Mosely is!”
Sierra Hahn, BOOM! Studios Executive Editor, expressed excitement about the project:
“The false gods of technology have NOTHING on Mosely in this exciting new sci-fi series that pits a singular individual against all of the corrupt corporate powers of Big Tech. Of course, being the creative geniuses they are, Rob and Sam make this a fun, action-packed, and extremely entertaining thrill ride so get ready for big boss fights and a peek into a futuristic society that challenges our own relationships with our devices!”
Mosely #1 features main cover art by series artist Lotfi, and variant covers by series creator Guillory and highly acclaimed artists Joe Palmer (Time Before Time), Mike Huddleston (Decorum), and more.
Look for Mosely #1 to arrive in comic stores and on digital this January.
