October of 1962. The Cold War between the US and the Soviet Union is at its peak when the unthinkable happens: nuclear war. Sixty years later, the remaining 13 states rose from the ashes to form the American Union, governed by the authoritarian Joint Chiefs of Staff and protected by a border wall to keep out nuclear radiation . . . and the individuals who were enhanced by it. Nuclear Power is a darkly poignant alternate history tale that posits the lengths to which a government will go to protect (or deceive) its citizens. When the Joint Chiefs’ dark secrets are revealed, will survivors on both sides of the wall join forces to fight for their right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, or will their differences forever divide them?
“As two women with Cuban mothers, the Cuban Missile Crisis affected our families in many ways and was a big inspiration for the story,” notes writers Proctor and Harrell. “The series blends our love of history with our love of comic books and science fiction. We hope readers enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed writing it.”
Issues #1-6 of the comic book series will be released digitally (issue by issue) through Hoopla and ComiXology starting in April 2021. In addition, the series will be collected into a printed trade paperback for an October 2021 release. The Nuclear Power trade paperback will retail for $19.99 and is now available for pre-order through Fanbase Press. Pre-orders made by August 1, 2021, will receive exclusive signed prints of the single issue covers, as well as an Issue #1 variant cover, signed by the creative team.
