What if THEY’RE NOT LIKE US?

WHAT IF THE NEXT GENERATION
HAD SPECIAL ABILITIES?
WHAT IF THEY’RE NOT LIKE US?
Critically-acclaimed creators Stephenson
and Gane launch all-new series

Eisner-nominated writer and Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson (NOWHERE MEN) collaborates with red-hot artist Simon Gane for the all-new ongoing thriller series THEY’RE NOT LIKE US, coming to Image Comics on December 24.

We all have advantages over one another, but what if the next generation of youth were capable of things most of us could only imagine? What would they do—and who would they be? A doctor? An athlete? A soldier? A hero? Since the beginning of time we’ve all had to make choices about how to use our own unique abilities, but not like this generation… THEY’RE NOT LIKE US.

In a spotlight interview with Stephenson, he described the series as a “slow-building horror” that explores what happens if people take advantage of their special abilities for personal gain instead of goodwill. “Power does different things to different people, and in They’re Not Like Us, we’re going to meet a group of very desensitized young people whose extraordinary abilities have put them in a very unique position within the modern world.”

“When Eric told me the concept of They’re Not Like Us and asked if I’d like to draw it, I said ‘Yes’ with something approaching superhuman speed,” added Gane. “It’s smart, satirical and more than a little bit sinister. Now, I’m not psychic or anything, but you expect that edge from Image Comics and Eric’s writing.”

THEY’RE NOT LIKE US #1 arrives in stores this 12/24 and can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code OCT140592. The final order cut off deadline is Monday, 12/1.
