While we try to keep things light here at GEEK, it is sometimes impossible, and frankly irresponsible, to ignore the current climate of the country and the divisions happening between us. This is why it’s so important to create discussions and scenarios to further bring people together, and take a look at our society through a different lens. Days of Hate, a new series from Image Comics, does just that by taking our current climate and jumping ahead to the year 2022 in a fictional look at a US police state and the guerrilla war that fights against it. The story will focus on examining the relationship between our two protagonists on either side of the struggle.
The maxi-series comes to us from bestselling writer Aleš Kot (Zero, Generation Gone), who will be joined by artist Danijel Žeželj (Starve) and Eisner-winning colorist Jordie Bellaire (Redlands, Pretty Deadly) to bring us Days of Hate:
Days of Hate is set in The United States of America in 2022. The loss that ripped two of its main protagonists apart drove one into the arms of the police state and the other towards a guerrilla war against the white supremacy. Now they meet again, on the opposing sides—and all hell has broken loose.
“Days of Hate is all about the characters. It’s about them living in a country that is falling apart. It’s about love, hate, war, tragedy, and layers of intrigue and double-crossing,” said Kot. “It’s about the things people do to survive and to live—and about killing Nazis.”
