Madness, humor, and hyper-violence collide in ‘Survival Street’

After an unbridled wave of corporations take over America the country is left completely deregulated.

Press Release

Dark Horse Comics has announced new series Survival Street #1 set for the August 3rd release. The series is written by James Asmus (Ricky & Morty: Corporate Assets) and Jim Festante (Rick & Morty Presents Mr. Meeseeks, The End Times of Bram & Ben), drawn and inked by Abylay Kussainov (Brothers), colored by Ellie Wright (We Only Kill Each OtherThe Black Ghost), and lettered by Taylor Esposito (No One Left To Fight).

Survival Street originated as our personal pandemic passion project,” James Asmus said, “but once Jim and I connected with Abylay, he brought it thundering to life as the ultimate world and story to process so much of our anxieties, frustration, future shock, and gallows humor. And as a huge fan of Dark Horse’s original series since the early days of Hellboy, Sin City, Madman, and The Mask – I’m thrilled and grateful they’ve been so supportive of this wild and surprisingly personal series.”

So what’s Survival Street about?

After an unbridled wave of corporations take over America the country is left completely deregulated. It is effectively carved up into feudal states where billionaires and businesses make their own laws. Among the wreckage, mass privatization shuts down public broadcasting, forcing all the beloved edu-tainers out on the dirty streets. A group of them sticks together, determined to keep helping kids across the country–and to do it by becoming an A-Team-esque band of mercenaries fighting for (and educating!) kids in the crumbling, corporate war zone of New Best America.

Check out the covers below.
