Dark 48 (2008) comic books
by Steven O'Connell, Daniel Indro & Joel Seguin History will come to know it as Dark 48. It began when a terrorist cell intercepted a designer Soviet plague, a virus genetically engineered to attack the Y-chromosome of males, inducing rage. In the '80s the Russians had hoped the Afghan rebels would turn on each other saving them lives and ammunition. Thankfully they never used it. An ex-Russian General brought it to the attention of the CDC. They confiscated it. The terror cell got wind of it and the rest is history. We follow an all-female strike team - Battle Corp Delta - whose mission is to traverse the contiguous lower 48 searching for survivors - and hopefully a cure. Cover price $3.99.
by Steven O'Connell, Daniel Indro & Joel Seguin Always expect the unexpected! Anthem lives by that motto, especially since they seemed to have found a male unaffected by the virus, which means there could be a cure. To get him out of there, Battle Corp Delta will have to run a gauntlet through the darkened hallways, always watching their backs for the crazies. The hospital with all its shadows resembles a haunted house. They've been trained well but some scenarios like this one couldn't have been imagined. One thing is certain, some of them will survive to fight another day, and one of them will die! Cover price $3.99.
