From The Press Release
(July 27, 2021) Fan-favorite writer Jimmy Palmiotti (Harley Quinn, Painkiller Jane, Marvel Knights) and superstar artist Scott Hampton (Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, Black Widow, GI Zombie) are collaborating on an all-new, fully-painted original graphic novel titled RAGE. In this action-packed thriller, one man embarks on a cross-country journey to find his daughter in the wake of a worldwide catastrophe. RAGE is currently being crowdfunded on Kickstarter and award-winning artists Amanda Conner and Bill Sienkiewicz are providing limited edition variant covers for the campaign.
“RAGE is a full-throttle, white knuckle thriller about a man with secrets in his past, who will do absolutely whatever it takes to save his daughter,” said Palmiotti. “It’s a story all about survival, which in this case means learning to live with what you’ve done ― and what you’ve failed to do.”
In RAGE, Braden Radovick is a desperate man. He wakes up in a New York City holding cell to discover the world has changed overnight. Everywhere he goes, there are fires. The city is littered with corpses. People are losing their minds. The cops are so overwhelmed, they just let him walk out of the cell.
Braden’s journey is just beginning. He’s separated from his daughter Friday, who’s on the west coast, and absolutely nothing ― not even a global disaster ― will stop him from finding her. Before his cross-country odyssey is over, Braden will be forced to use all his resources and skills to reunite with his daughter and save her.
“Scott Hampton’s done an absolutely stunning job with the art and Amanda Conner and Bill Sienkiewicz have done jaw-dropping variant covers,” said Palmiotti. “Like most PaperFilms’ books, RAGE is a graphic novel with sex and violence and is for adults. We make comics for adults, by adults.”
RAGE is the 16th Kickstarter project for Paperfilms, the company Palmiotti co-founded with Amanda Conner. The project for the 68-page adult graphic novel is now live at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/creatorownedheroes/rage-2?ref=489i4m.
Jimmy Palmiotti launched PaperFilms in 2001 to create a company for creators skilled in world building, screenwriting, intellectual property development, video game development, illustration, editorial experience and much more, as part of their efforts to own and develop their own characters for various media, while also nurturing a community for like-minded comic book creators.
