Bitter Root co-creator Chuck Brown and #Like4Like artist Prenzy have a new series coming to Image Comics that introduces a world where politicians step into a different arena to decide who leads.
This February the campaign trail is paved with blood and broken bones.
In the On the Stump universe, history diverged in 1868 when a pivotal presidential debate turned violent. Today, elections are decided by highly publicized hand-to-hand combat in arenas called Stumps. Unfortunately, the violence doesn’t end in the ring, and powerful people can still get away with murder. Senator Jack Hammer and FBI Agent Anna Bell Lister are teaming up to bring it all down.
“This the rawest story I’ve ever written,” said Brown. “It literally doesn’t hold any punches. Having Prenzy and Clayton bring it to life has been a dream come true.”
“This series has everything I love drawing and the fact that I could also colour it helped me make it even more peculiar. Brown created a great story and Cowles was able to give the pages their rightful value. I can say this work will impress the readers… like a punch on the face!” said Prenzy.
The hyper-violent, hyper-stylized ongoing series On the Stump coming to Image Comics February 19th.
