Pullbox Previews Orphans of the Impact Winter, an imaginative deep dive into a boy & his dog surviving the unsurvivable

Orphans of the Impact Winter (thePullbox reviewed the first preview issue back in October of 2022) is a comic that tells the tale of an imaginative young boy named Chuck and his loyal dog Addie as they struggle to survive in a world where the moon is falling out of the sky. Coping by pretending that they are explorers in a sci-fi world, Chuck and Addie embark on a perilous journey to find salvation from the impending catastrophe.

As the story drifts between Chuck’s imagined fantasy and harsh reality, so too does the art, which features
two distinct styles. Page by page the muted palettes and gritty style of the real world intermingle with the
saturated colors and cartoon characters of a science fiction fantasy.

At its core, Orphans examines the will to survive and why, in the face of futility, we choose to go on (or don’t). It also looks at the fantastic worlds we create as children, the ways we cope with trauma as we age, and how these habits collide in a character like Chuck. Orphans is aimed at mid-teen to early 30s readers, especially those who are nostalgic for cartoons in the style of Chuck’s imaginary world but can relate to the idea of reconciling youthful fantasies with the often harsh realities of the present.

Orphans of the Impact Winter was created by brothers Lee and Ross Carlisle, colored by Marina Gonçalves, and lettered by Marco Ventura.
