BOOM! Preview: Paknadel & Trakhanov’s Turncoat #1

What’s to Love: Employing the most compelling elements of science fiction and the detective genre, Paknadel & Trakhanov’s Turncoat is a gripping exploration of power vacuums and the legacy of oppression. Alex Paknadel (Arcadia) and Artyom Trakhanov (Undertow) tell the story of a guilt-ridden protagonist through a grisly quest for truth. Paknadel & Trakhanov’s Turncoat will scratch that itch you have for dark sci-fi like Blade Runner, The Forever War, and Neuromancer.

What It Is: 300 years since humanity was brutally subjugated by the alien race known simply as the Management. Two years since these invaders abandoned Earth to return to their home world. Following her participation in the brutal massacre of human-alien hybrids left behind by the Management, resistance fighter Marta Gonzalez declines to join the new human government and starts her own private detective agency instead. Gonzalez is forced to confront her own bloody past and acknowledge the fact that the transition from oppression to emancipation is anything but clean.
