Wilson posits that the source of good and evil is a virus and asks “What do we do next?” See the rest of the announcement and sample pages below:
Today, DC Entertainment and Alloy Entertainment are thrilled to announce a new and exciting original graphic novel. Written by none other than Daniel H. Wilson, current EARTH 2: WORLD’S END show runner and the writer of this June’s EARTH 2: SOCIETY as well as the New York Times bestselling novel Robopocolypse and its sequel Robogenesis, among others.
What if humanity discovered the root of all evil? And what if it was a virus? Must it be contained?
Welcome to the QUARANTINE ZONE. Set in the future, those infected with the virus have been forcibly imprisoned in the Quarantine Zone (whether they choose to do good or evil). These prisoners are watched over by the special forces unit known as Quarantine Zone Enforcement. While the rest of the world is sterile and crime-free, they live full of the fear of new outbreaks. But what happens if someone with the virus goes undetected in the outside world?
Drawn by Fernando Pasarin, QUARANTINE ZONE ($22.99 / 160p / on sale in comic stores January 6 and everywhere books are sold January 12, 2016) is an action packed scifi story that raises questions about free will and the nature of good and evil.
