RED RISING: SONS OF ARES Gets Five Cover Variations

RED RISING comic prequel SON OF ARES reveals stunning cover designs!

It was announced back in July that Pierce Brown‘s Red Rising trilogy was getting a comic book sequel and today, we’re getting a few visuals of what’s to come thanks to Bleeding Cool!

Red Rising: Sons of Ares follows the early days of the Gold rebellion against the system as The Rage Knight, Fitchner Au Barca, falls in love with a “lowly red” and takes the first steps toward destroying the powerful Gold government from within. That’s right– We’re getting a badass story of tyranny and mutiny focused around Sevro’s parents!

“Like the books, ours is a fast-moving story set right across the vast canvas of the freshly-colonized solar system,” said writer Rik Hoskin. “We’re exploring the effects that the inflexible regime has on an individual who’s a key figure from the books, looking at the limits of humanity in a dehumanizing system. For me, that’s the key to the books — the very human characters striving against a system geared to beating them down. It’s harsh, cruel, unfair and — occasionally — uplifting.”

Check out a whopping five cover variations for the first issue based on two different outlines, all of which are slated to hit shelves in May.
