After working on the inaugural arc of BOOM! Studios' Sons of Anarchy title, Ed Brisson and Damian Couceiro are going out on their own with new series Cluster in what the publisher describes as a "gritty, violent, sci-fi epic in the vein of The Dirty Dozen."
That opening panel shows more than just a dozen, but given Brisson's past writing, I expect that herd to be thinned down quick and with gusto. Cluster follows a group of incarcerated criminals drafted into service as soliders in a future war against aliens, but their predicament goes from bad to worse when they're stranded on one of the battlefield planets with only each other to rely on for survival.
For ROBOT 6's anniversary celebration, BOOM! has provided us with an exclusive three-page preview of this title, debuting on Feb. 4. In addition, we have three of the four covers by James Stokoe, Simon Roy and Declan Shalvey.
