AfterShock Comics Announces 2019 FCBD Offering in ANIMOSITY TALES

Just ahead of the turn of the calendar year, AfterShock Comics has revealed Animosity Tales, which will be its addition for Free Comic Book Day, 2019.

The FCBD book will be an all-new and fully-illustrated (by Elton Thomasi) one-shot and is an extension of the original series, Animosity, created by Marguerite Bennett and Rafael de Latorre. The story follows a ‘dog and his girl’ that must flee New York City, who are bound for San Francisco, seeking protection from the one person that may be able to protect her, following a day when animals have started thinking and talking … and taking revenge!

“I hope readers, new and old, will get a kick out of the more lighthearted tale of the world of Animosity and the events of the ‘Wake’, the day the animals all ‘woke up’ and gained the powers of thought and speech previously reserved only for humans,” said Bennett. “Our FCBD story is fun, funny (fin? finny?) adventures of a certain Siamese fighting fish and his college student mistress – while the birds, bees and other animals run amok in the aftermath. Our beta fish is determined not to let a glass bowl or tank walls keep him from living life to the fullest.”

The series will also soon be adapted by Legendary Entertainment, in which readers will see the intertwined tales of its main characters come full circle in a black comedy apocalypse where animals have risen to take control.
