Berger Books imprint expands with ‘Post York’

James Romberger’s dystopian eco-fable graphic novel is the latest to be welcomed under Karen Berger’s umbrella.

Karen Berger’s Dark Horse Comics imprint, Berger Books, has announced the latest creator to be welcomed under their umbrella in the form of James Romberger and his eco-fiction fable Post York.

Post York began as an Eisner-Nominated one-shot and thanks to a partnership with the esteemed Berger Books, it will arrive on shelves as a full graphic novel that includes an environmental fact sheet and other bonus material in September 2020.

Read the official Dark Horse synopsis for Post York:

The polar ice caps have melted, and New York City is flooded beyond recognition. Amidst the ruin, an independent loner along with his cat and only friend, navigates the submerged city as he tries to live another day. But everything changes when he encounters both a mysterious woman and a trapped blue whale. Will they be each other’s salvation… or destruction?

Their paths intertwine surprisingly, daringly, dangerously with others from this makeshift community– from outsiders like himself to the depraved and ruthless elite; all struggling to maintain a sense of normalcy in a city drowned in its past.

“When James told me he was expanding POST YORK into a graphic novel, I leapt at the chance to publish this singular and riveting story of daily survival in a not-so-far-fetched NYC,” said Karen Berger in statement. “It couldn’t be more timely nor terrifying.”

Post York’s hero is my son Crosby and the story is my apology to him for the mess my generation has left the planet in” Romberger added “The book is created in an experimental way; it is improvised directly onto the art boards without script or preliminary layouts. The alternative endings came about this way, as did certain narrative twists that grew from my conversations with Crosby, and from his rap song.”
