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.

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.

“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.

I’m super excited about this new book. I’ve met Matt before and besides being a great writer, he is a real nice guy who knows a lot about science which makes this comic book much more exciting!

We will keep you updated as we learn more details about this book.
