Legend, by writer Sam Sattin and artist Chris Koehler, is an unusual sort of comic told from the point of view of the dogs alive after the apocalypse. In this world, dogs and cats have taken over the business of rebuilding the world, with cats as the technological experts. The art reflects the viewpoint of the main characters: “Since dogs actually see the world differently than we do, Chris’ use of color echoes Sam’s subtext, bathing the canine world in a chromatic, saturated glow.”
Z2 comics has recently released a trailer and preview images from Legend, which is coming in May.
Synopsis for Legend
What if a biological terror agent wiped out most of humanity, and our domesticated animals were left in charge? How would our dogs and cats set about ruling and rebuilding the world? Ransom, the leader of the Dog Tribe, has been murdered by a creature known as the Endark. An English Pointer named Legend reluctantly rises to lead in his place, vowing to kill the monster once and for all. From acclaimed novelist Samuel Sattin and award-winning illustrator Chris Koehler comes LEGEND, where cat technology rules, dogs partner with hawks, and humans may be the most beastly creatures of all.
