(W) Steve Skroce (A) Steve Skroce, Dave Stewart (CA) Steve Skroce

From MAESTROS creator, WE STAND ON GUARD co-creator, and The Matrix storyboard artist STEVE SKROCE with coloring by Eisner Award-winning DAVE STEWART.
The Cheyanne mountain installation, aka The BUBBLE, is the most sophisticated super bunker in the world. It was built to ensure the survival of America's executive branch of government and its most important citizens, should the unthinkable happen. When the world ended, the executive branch failed to reach the sanctuary, but the elite citizenry did. Eighty years later, one of their own has named himself the new President of the United States. His plan? Subjugate the survivors of the American Wasteland using the same bunker resources meant to rebuild it. The only thing standing in their way is a deadly Wasteland girl, hellbent on revenge! In-Store: 2nd of Dec 2020 

Here's how Steve Skroce discribed the series in a recent email to retailers:
"MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, SNOWPIERCER, and WE STAND ON GUARD are first cousins to POST AMERICANA in terms of tone, action, and batshit craziness, but, the extended family are badass too. Movies like BLADE RUNNER, AKIRA AND DAMNATION ALLEY, as well as novels like SWAN SONG and THE STAND make up a good chunk of its DNA.
This comic moves fast and is action packed. There's world building in every panel and it has characters you want to be on this journey with, emotional stakes are important to me too, extreme loss can erode your ability to empathize with your fellow humans, that idea is key to this story, When I wasn't storyboarding the fourth MATRIX film I was obsessed with creating this—it exists because I couldn't NOT make it..."  
MK1 Comment: I've read the first issue via digital sampler and can certainly atest to the  "batshit craziness" description - lots of fun!

The good life never lasts.

After paying off their debt to Drez Vina, Vox Machina enjoy a week in Westruun's lap of luxury. But that costs coin, which has a bad habit of running out.

But before they can bash their way to cash, their attention is snagged by the case of a missing child.

Prepare to jump back into the fray with series III of Critical Role: Vox Machina Origins, from the New York Times bestselling team of Jody Houser (Orphan Black, Stranger Things), Olivia Samson, MSASSYK (Isola, Gotham Academy), and Ariana Maher (James Bond, Xena)  In-Store: 9th December 2020
