Meet writer Rylend Grant!
This past Wednesday, June 6th, Action Lab: Danger Zone released an exciting modern political/conspiracy thriller entitled ABERRANT from writer Rylend Grant. The creator has for years been penning smart, testosterone-driven action movies for some of Hollywood’s biggest directors; folks like Ridley Scott, Justin Lin, F. Gary Gray, John Woo, and Luc Besson. With ABERRANT, he teams with artists Zsombor Huszka & Davi Leon Dias, colorist Iwan Joko Triyono, and letterer Hde Ponsonby-Jones for this ten issue series, which will deliver two, five-issue story arcs filled with action, intensity, and surprises behind every corner.
In honor of the comic’s debut, Rylend Grant is out making appearances that you won’t want to miss! Check out the preview of ABERRANT #1, then learn how you can meet Rylend yourself, snag a copy of ABERRANT #1, and get it signed!
Iwan Joko Triyono (Colorist)
David, a U.S. Army Special Operations Commander, distraught after losing his entire unit to a superhuman attack, wages an absolutely brutal one-man war on the eccentric billionaire and former superhero, Lance Cordrey, whom he believes is ultimately responsible. That is until Nelson Little, the head of a clandestine paramilitary outfit called Article 13, provides David with evidence that Cordrey may be a patsy, and David’s men were killed as part of a vast and twisted government/military conspiracy.
