Skybound Editorial Director Sean Mackiewicz’s new comic Gasolina is headed to a store near you this fall. With art by Niko Walter, the series follows fugitive newlyweds as they take on a cartel with “inhuman” tactics.
In Gasolina, rebellious fugitives Amalia and Randy are on a journey south from El Norte. Along the way, they’ve had to take on various roles in order to survive; however, their latest roles as the unlikely leaders in the fight against a new cartel may be their most dangerous mission yet.
According to the official series synopsis,
Fugitives. Rebels. Newlyweds. In their journey south from El Norte, Amalia and Randy have played many roles in order to survive. Now, they must become unlikely leaders in the fight against a new cartel, who uses inhuman tactics to ignite the most monstrous war Mexico — and the world — has ever seen.
“Skybound is the most creatively stimulating environment I’ve ever experienced. So, in creating this comic with Niko Walter, I’m putting to use everything I’ve learned from all the talented creators I’ve worked with… and also Robert Kirkman,” Mackiewicz said in a statement. “I can’t imagine publishing my first comic anywhere but at Image/Skybound.”
