Pocket Jack Comics mainman, Youtuber and constant thorn in the side of Comicsgate, Preston Poulter, has announced a brand new escapist cyberpunk comic book series for fans of both Robocop and The Expanse.
Set several decades in the future, Lords of Iron finds humanity in a struggle for dominance of the solar system against a genetically engineered race of beings called “Vees” who have successfully colonized Venus and now seek control over the asteroid belt. Robotech meets The Expanse in this brand new cyberpunk comic book series, as we follow a squadron of Russian “Stellar Knights” who pilot power armor, as they seek to defend Earth’s smelting facility on Ceres.
Co-creator/writer Preston Poulton had the following to say about this coming release:
“I wanted a science fiction story that had the DNA of my World War 2 story, White Lily, about the two deadliest female fighter pilots who ever lived. So I’m bringing the same team over to Lords of Iron.”
The artist, Joaquin “Jake” Bilbao III, is a freelance Comicbook Artist who has worked on titles including Bloodrayne, Pathfinder, Wolverine, and a veritable smorgasbord of Indie Comics including Crispus Caesar, Once Our Land, The Outlaw of Torn, The Monster Men and White Indian.
