Press Release

Image Comics has announced Golden Rage is screaming into comic shops on August 3rd. From creators Chrissy Williams, Lauren Knight, Sofie Dodgson, letterer Becca Carey, and editor Joamette Gil for a five-issue miniseries that Image says pairs the survival combat of Battle Royale with the character dynamics of The Golden Girls.

“Old women are formidable—I wrote Golden Rage to reflect that,” said Williams. “These characters are tough, capable, kind, and funny. I’ve fallen in love with the combination of cake and stabbing weapons, and hope you will too.”

So what’s Golden Rage about?

In a world where older women who’ve been deemed useless to society are abandoned on an island, Golden Rage documents their golden years of making friends, baking dessert, and fighting to the death for survival.

Knight added: “My brand is Angry Women and Golden Rage let me play around with characters we don’t get to see enough of in media. Read this if you’re looking for great examples on how to age disgracefully and for granny-on-granny violence with a gratuitous side helping of heart.”

Early praise for Golden Rage:

Battle Royale meets The Golden Girls with dashes of Agatha Christie and Logan’s Run. I’m all the way in!” —Kelly Sue DeConnick

Golden Rage’s not-so-farfetched dystopian island of castaway old ladies will [make you] question your attitude toward the aging women of this world. A very important subject of self-reflection indeed.” —Elsa Charretier
