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.
"[C]reepy and highly entertaining ... The dialogue is spot on ... and the art is terrific." -- George Gustines, Comic book beat writer for the New York Times
"I am so damn impressed with what Mathew has come up with here ... The story and plot development that we see here is extraordinarily good ... The character development that we are seeing is stupendous and how we manage to see the characters and some temporary baseline personalities that are set to grow, change and evolve is mesmerising. When we factor the pacing into the equation it takes on a journey through the twists, turns and revelations that are far worse than a haunted house on Halloween but one take willingly because it cannot be avoided, our curiosity that is." -- Reading with a Flight Ring
"You Are Obsolete #1 is a terrifyingly good read. It will keep you guessing with every turn of the page. The dialogue is solid, the pacing is on point, and the mystery behind the children is just terrific. If you love a good spine-chilling story shrouded in mystery, you need to download this book or get to your local comic shop today. Klickstein and Bornyakov definitely have a hit on their hands — Netflix, you need to make a live-action adaption pronto." -- AiPT!
