Media Release — Post-Katrina New Orleans comes alive this December when BOOM! Studios premieres NOLA. Writer/director Chris Gorak of the critically acclaimed RIGHT AT YOUR DOOR brings you NOLA, a relentless story about dead-cold vengeance in the face of losing everything.
After cheating death, Nola Thomas wakes up alone in a deserted New Orleans hospital. Bruised, broken, and badly burned, she emerges from the flood waters of Hurricane Katrina with one thing on her mind…revenge.
“NOLA takes the revenge/crime story to a complex setting, amongst a national disaster, where crime, and poverty reached a fever pitch,” says Managing Editor Matt Gagnon. “Combine one of the most culturally rich environments on the planet with a tragedy of biblical proportions, and a passionate anti-hero with a righteous mission and you get NOLA.”
NOLA is a four issue miniseries written by Chris Gorak, scripted by Pierluigi Cothran with sensational interior art by red hot newcomer Damian Couceiro. Issue one ships with two covers in a 50/50 split, featuring art by Erik Jones (THE UNKNOWN) and Chris Brunner (HELLBLAZER), and carries a Diamond Code of SEP090694.
