After a cataclysmic plague sweeps across America, survivors come together to form citystate-like communities for safety. Out beyond the settlement walls are innumerable dangers: feral animals, crumbling structures, and Abominations; those that were touched by the plague and became something other – something as beautiful as it is deadly. Welcome to The Wilds, a brand new comic series.
We’re joined by the writer and the penciler of this hot series from Black Mask Studios.
Vita Ayala spent years in comic and book retail, and night security at a one of the oldest museums in New York City before taking the plunge and entering the Thunderdome life-style that is pursuing a career in the arts. They have since written for DC Comics (Rebirth Wonder Woman Annual #1, Rebirth Supergirl #19), Dark Horse Comics (Secret Loves of Geeks), and Image Comics (Bitch Planet Triple Feature #4), as well as having a creator owned book, The Wilds, through Black Mask Studios.
Before coming to Black Mask Studios to work on the Wilds, Emily Pearson attempted to studying art at her local Junior College. After deciding to drop out she took on commissions and learned how to draw comics. Since then she has illustrated : Vault Comic's "Cult Classic: Zero Short" written by Eliot Rahal, and "All Roads" for "Jacob" written by Jed McPherson.
