Zack Kaplan Brings His Talents To AfterShock With LOST CITY EXPLORERS #1

AfterShock announced Tuesday morning Zack Kaplan’s first book with the comic book publisher, Lost City Explores #1 will hit your local comic book store in June.

“It’s a Stranger Things style story that follows a group of millennial teenagers who discover the Lost City of Atlantis is hidden underneath New York City.

I’ve always been fascinated by urban exploration and what underground secrets a city holds. I grew up on Goonies, so I remember wanting to go looking for lost treasure or mythical wonders in my backyard. And what’s more mythical than the Lost City of Atlantis?! This is my millennial spin on all that, something personal, empowering, dark, challenging: a gritty, modern adventure story,” said Kaplan.

The science-fiction adventure series is written by Kaplan, with art by Alvaro Sarraseca, colors by Chris Blythe, and letters by Troy Peteri. Rafael La Torre and Marcelo Maiolo worked on Cover A, with Sarraseca’s art on Cover B.

About the series:
Lost cities aren’t just the stuff of myths. They exist hidden right under our noses. But when a mysterious expedition is disrupted by supernatural activity, and an antiquities professor goes missing, his teenage daughter and her friends must become underground urban explorers, follow his tracks on a coming-of-age journey through subterranean tunnels, and ultimately find the holy grail of lost city: Atlantis buried right under New York City!

Lost City Explores #1 hits the streets on June 20.
