Barrens cosplay cover

Project-Nerd Publishing’s new series Barrens spread like wildfire last weekend at its debut at Kansas City’s Planet Comicon.  The regular first issue of the series is still available at the publisher’s website (and we hope they get it into your local comic book store soon) but the variant cosplay cover featuring series lead character Esme Ford has already sold out.  So order your copy of the regular edition here before it sells out, too.

We previewed Barrens here at borg.com last year.  The creative team of writer CW Cooke (Solitary) and Bryan Timmins (The Monster King) knocked the first chapter of the series out of the park.  If you liked the Mad Max series, Steve Niles and Kevin Mellon’s American Muscle, Tank Girl, The Postman, or A Boy and his Dog, you’ll want to get in at the beginning of the series.

Writer CW Cooke (Solitary) and artist Bryan Timmins (The Monster King) are bringing a new kickass heroine to comic book shops next year.  New comic book independent publisher Project-Nerd Publishing is launching the post-apocalypse series Barrens via a Kickstarter campaign that will be winding up this week.  It’s the publisher’s first series and is sure to be the next big thing.  The minimum Kickstarter pledges to go forward have been met, but there are plenty of incentives that will prompt you to check out the campaign and pick some up for yourself.

Timmins calls Barrens a “Futuristic, Post-Apocalyptic, Punk Rock, Action-Adventure story.”  Timmins’ powerful, action-packed style and colors may remind you of DC Comics illustrator Jock or earlier classic comic book artists Moebius and Hergé.

Esme cosplay cover variant

The world is barren.  Just a few major cities remain and they are inhabited by the wealthy.  With their money, they survived the warfare… the virus.  But others survived too.

Those who won’t serve the wealthy live in the barrens, surviving on their own.  But with how dangerous the barrens can be, the wealthy actually need the filthy.  Hired escorts are paid handsomely to bring the wealthy from one city to another.  Protecting them on the journey.  Others are paid to act as mercenaries, task forces, and more.
