About the Series
A disgraced journalist is called to cover a mysterious story on an isolated European island. As she investigates, she discovers the children have taken control and are somehow killing off all adults by their 40th birthdays. Now, she must discover the truth behind the killings while staying on the good side of the children’s harsh leader…or she’s next.
You Are Obsolete is a spine-tingling thriller that evokes the eerie naturalism of 1970s horror films with a modern deadly digital twist. Written/created by Mathew Klickstein and drawn by Evgeniy Bornyakov. Out in five-part series from AfterShock Comics.
