In 2019, a gray haze descends on planet earth and reduces every known metal to worthless piles of rust. With no technology remaining, humanity reverts to a violent feudal system ruled by knights of wood, stone and plastic, this is the new Dark Age. Also included is the return of Afterburn, soon to be a major motion picture! After a solar flare wipes out half the earth, Jake and his treasure hunters raid what's left behind. Post-apocalyptic mayhem is unleashed in Russia in this original short story.

    You Don't Read Comics - Andrew Huard May 14, 2019

    This creative team is off to a really great start. The Dark Age FCBD issue had just enough teaser material to hopefully grow a fan base for the first issue release in July. There is still much of the story yet to be told about the 13 years that have passed since the incident. This is a bold and dangerous world that Ethen is raising his children in. A healthy childhood is a thing of the past as every decision is now life and death and there is no room for error. There always seem to be a litany of comics based around the apocalypse on store shelves. The Dark Age offers enough of variety on the subject to make it worth adding to your pull list.

    Comic Spectrum - Bob Bretall May 9, 2019

    This is an interesting take on the post-apocalyptic in that it doesn't just focus on basic survival, instead telling tales of adventuring in the altered world. The current series of this being published as single issues, is called “Afterburn: Crossfire” and issue #3 is in the current May Previews catalog as MAY191884. Read Full Review
