Dark Horse Comics presents a new action-adventure-horror comic in Savage Squad 6. This miniseries tells the tale of an elite team of post-apocalyptic soldiers undergoing the deadliest mission of their lives, and is written by Robert Venditti (Superman ’78, Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps) and Brockton McKinney (Jenny Zero), with interior art and cover art by Dalts Dalton, color by Geraldo Filho (Jenny Zero II) and lettering by Micah Myers (Youth, It’s Only Teenage Wasteland).

The year is 2037. A brutal world war has left humanity in shambles. The remnants of civilization are tracked down and systematically eliminated by The Scourge. For the people of the central colonies, only one hope remains, an elite team of warrior women deployed into the deadliest location on the planet: Savage Squad 6!

“Brock and I have been writing together for years, and we’ve been friends even longer,” says writer Robert Venditti. “For the first McDitti collaboration, we wanted to bring all the fun and abandon of ‘80s-‘90s action films to comics. Savage Squad 6 is everything we love about explosive firefights, impossible odds, and heroes who never say die.”

Savage Squad 6 #1 (of 4) will be in comic shops June 28, 2023. It is available for pre-order now at your local comic shop for $3.99.

Praise for Robert Venditti and Brockton McKinney:

“Jenny Zero” #1 combines fantastic visuals with an intriguing story for a promising debut issue.”—Multiversity Comics

“This issue features both a pitch perfect continuation of the classic Superman films and a stand-alone, continuity free Superman tale. The script captures the voices of the characters and the actors, while the art is absolutely fantastic. This is a must-read for any fan.”—ButWhyTho on Superman ’78 #1
