Experience the Fall of Society in Dark Horse’s Graphic Novel ‘Yellow’
Renowned music video director and storyboard artist Jay Martin, known for his previous work on Lost Boy, has once again partnered with Dark Horse Comics to present his new graphic novel adventure, Yellow. Set in an alternate future during a devastating Second Civil War in America, this beautifully haunting story delves deep into the depths of humanism.
The protagonist, Nick Carson, a wounded infantryman, finds himself fleeing the battlefield, desperate to escape the horrors of war. Branded a coward and marked for death, Nick embarks on a perilous journey across a desolate and war-torn America. In this world, power plants lie in ruins, and once-thriving cities have succumbed to darkness. It is an America at war with itself.
Within this backdrop of destruction and chaos, Yellow explores the fragile threads that hold society together when law and order unravel. As Nick traverses through the ravaged country, he encounters a myriad of challenges, both human and inhumane. It is in these encounters that he is faced with the ultimate choice: succumb to his basic instincts or rise above the darkness.
With Martin providing an enthralling blend of story, art, and color, readers will find themselves captivated by the haunting landscapes and intricate character development. Accompanied by the lettering of Frank Cvetkovic which sees the two creators re-team after their work on Lost Boy. Yellow presents a thought-provoking narrative that probes the depths of human morality and resilience in the face of adversity.
The hardcover edition of Yellow will be available everywhere books are sold on May 14, 2024, and at your favorite local comic shop on May 15, 2024. Check out the cover reveal below:
