Night Hunters by Alexis Ziritt and Dave Baker / ISBN 9781942801085 / 128-page paperback, 7 x 10 inches, published by Floating World
“A brutal, honest, and uncompromising vision of the near future, brought to life with stunning art. Night Hunters is science fiction comic book storytelling at its best.”– James Tynion IV
Night Hunters is a pulsing cyberpunk classic that tells the tale of two brothers who have to navigate the futuristic dystopian world of Venezuela, 100 years in the future.
How far would you go for your family? Would you enlist in a corrupt police department and slowly sell your body-parts for cyborg replacements so that your aging father can have a roof over his head? The only answer is pick up your gun and put one foot in front of the other.
This sci-fi epic by indie comics all-stars Alexis Ziritt (Space Riders, Tarantula) and Dave Baker (F*** Off Squad, Star Trek Voyager) combines the political sharpness of Paul Verhoven and the bleak sense of humor of Judge Dredd. If you’re on the search for the next great genre must-read this combination of Robocop and Blade Runner is definitely what you want.
