August 16, 2022 — New York, NY — Screenwriter Curt Pires (Youth, Lost Falls, Memoria) is writing its fourth comic book series Comixology Originals New America, an action-packed political thriller. Created by Pires (Youth, Wyrd) and the artist Luca Casalanguida (James Bond, the scout’s honor) with colors by Mark Dale and letters by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou, New America is told in three oversized numbers. New America #1 debuts August 23, 2022 in Amazon’s exclusive Comixology Originals digital content line.
“I’m so excited to bring New America to life with my friends at Comixology and my amazing collaborators: Luca Casalanguida, Mark Dale, Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou and Fernando Rosales,” says writer Curt Pires. “New America is an idea that I have had for many years that I have been waiting to bring to fruition in a perfect way and I am delighted to finally be able to do so. A work of speculative fiction chronicling the events of the past two years, New America explores some of the key issues facing our world through the prism of an action thriller/crime story.
The old ways have failed us. Our leaders have let us down. The system failed us. So the decision was made to start over. Investing in the future, the foundation of something more, a New America.
With New America Pires continues to push the boundaries with its evocative and current storytelling. Ten years after the formation of the secessionist state in the United States of America, known as New America, ex-military Wyatt is reunited with his brother, now President of New America, Corey Walker.
New America follows the trials and tribulations both personal and political of the people who lead and live in the newly emerging territory as they struggle for a utopia, all the while questioning whether the new path is best amid protests and violence are continuing.
Pires’ previous work on Comixology Originals includes the YOUTH volumes 1 and 2now available in paperback from Dark Horse Books, lost falls and Memory. YOUTH is currently in development at Amazon Studios as an original series with executive producer Patrick Moran.
