Per Dark Horse Comics, JENNY ZERO VOLUME 2 HOMELAND INSECURITIES will feature sex, drugs, and giant monsters.
The press release follows:
Media Release — Like a big, bad hangover, Jenny Zero is BACK! Writers Dave Dwonch and Brockton McKinney and powerhouse artist Magenta King return to the hard-hitting series along with electrifying new colorist Arnaldo Robles in Jenny Zero: Homeland Insecurities.
Following the events of the first series, Jenny returns to Japan with the Action Science Police, and reunites with her BFF, Dana Sheratin! But the two badass besties soon find themselves dealing with a Kaiju Death Cult, a giant burger mascot, and a new monster called… fame?! The massive madness starts HERE!
“It’s a real joy to get back into this world, where I can draw a lot of crazy kaiju and badass fights,” says series artist Magenta King.
“For volume two, Dwonch, Magenta, and myself, cracked open the notebooks (plus several six-packs) and set out to make this the most heartfelt and outrageous chapter of our drunken hero’s life yet,” says co-writer Brockton McKinney. “It’s Jenny and crew blasting through Japan, dealing with Machiavellian supervillains, tear-jerking reunions, telekinetic inanimate evil, shocking hook-ups, super powered designer drugs, and the most insane giant-creature battles this side of Toho’s Big Five. We also enlisted über-talented colorist Arnoldo Robles, who really turned the series’ knobs up to eleven. We can’t thank Dark Horse and the #TeamZero fans enough for giving us the chance to continue Jenny’s epic (and inebriated) tale.”
“Amen, brother Brockton!” agrees co-writer Dave Dwonch. “When we created the Jenny Zero universe, we had SO many ideas that weren’t able to make it into Volume One, and we’re so thankful that Dark Horse extended the creative runway for us. If you enjoyed the first 4 issues of our series, just wait… the best is yet to come!”
Jenny Zero: Homeland Insecurities #1 (of 4) will be in comic shops May 11, 2022. It is available for pre-order at your local comic shop.
