Wildfire by Matt Hawkins & Linda Sejic Heating Up the Scene in June

Wildfire Matt Hawkins Linda SejicWildfire by Matt Hawkins and Linda Sejic Heating Up the Scene in June

What happens when you take one part storytelling skills of Matt Hawkins, add in one part artistic talent of Linda Sejic?  You discover the formula for Wildfire!

Is genetically modified food an end to world hunger or the beginning of the Apocalypse?

Coming this June from Minotaur Press, Top Cow publisher Matt Hawkins (THINK TANK, TALES OF HONOR) teams up with artist Linda Sejic in a haunting story that gives a Sinclair-eque speculation of the future spoils of genetically modified food consumption.

Matt Hawkins is doing it again, combining science and comics in a manner that leaves the reader not only better informed but entertained and enthralled by the story wrap Hawkins wraps around the science.

Dan Miller is a plant biologist working with a small team perfecting an accelerated plant growth process. When things start to go wrong, Los Angeles finds itself careening toward unforeseen disaster.

What does Hawkins have to say about why he is writing this book?

“Wildfire came out of an obsession I had researching genetically modified food,” said Hawkins. “When I discovered that both pro and con are shamelessly lying and covering up facts I wanted to do something fun, but rooted in the core science of what they’re doing and the debate. This is basically a disaster story unlike any before!”

WILDFIRE #1 arrives in stores on 6/11, and will be available for $3.99. It can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code APR140497. Cover B, featuring art by Stjepan Sejic, can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code APR140498.

Considering the story Hawkins has been delivering with Think Tank, Aphrodite IX and Tales of Honor, I was curious to see where all his research into GMOs would lead. Then with an unexpected surprise the other day, my curiosity was satisfied (at least momentarily) with a sneak peek at Wildfire.

This book is going to be hot! I won’t spoil it for you, but if you don’t put this on your Pull List or your Must Read list you are going to miss out!
