Official Press Release
Devil’s Due’s latest recruit in Drafted this May is a familiar face from the pages of Hack/Slash. Rebekah Isaacs takes over art duties on Mark Powers’ epic sci-fi series beginning with Drafted #7.
“Drafted itself has been a like a dream job for me,” Isaacs said. “I’m thrilled not only to see a truly epic, engaging new story enter the sci-fi genre, but especially to be a part of its creation.”
A graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design, Isaacs has worked previously on a Twilight Zone graphic novel in addition to her work on Hack/Slash. She takes over penciling duties from artist Chris Lie in a Drafted issue that sees the first act of Powers’ saga reach a boiling point. In the wake of humanity’s draft into an alien army, issue #7 will see some humans begin to rebel against the aliens who are trying to help them.
“To say I’m excited about collaborating with Rebekah is an understatement,” said Powers. “Rebekah’s strengths in portraying interpersonal moments and creating characters that truly act will allow us to dramatically depict the enormous personal and emotional costs being demanded of our cast as the scope of story expands.”
Drafted #7 arrives in comic shops on May 14.
