Outland Entertainment is pleased to announce that we’ve acquired a new, action-packed, post-apocalyptic, Mad Max style comic by Ariel Medel: Adelita: 3017.
Set in a futuristic post-apocalyptic world, the story follows Adelita, a character based on the archetype of the female soldier in the Mexican Revolution. Heavily influenced by Mexican folklore, with elements and visual settings similar to Mad Max: The Road Warrior, 80s action and martial art movies, and dystopian sci-fi with a fantasy aura reminiscent of Fables, the series is a perfect blend to appeal to fans.
You’ll find anthropomorphic coyotes, witches, giant iguanas, robots, rotten flesh skeletons, and of course a plethora of Mexican representation! All these are packed into an action-adventure comic with a compelling story and a mystery that will unravel throughout the mini-series.
Set in the year 3017, in a post-apocalyptic Mexico, the story follows Adelita and her dog, Xolotl, as she tries to save a world ravaged by war, famine, and disease, all while trying to discover her true identity. After centuries of war and destruction of the environment, empires have risen and fallen, and humanity is on the brink of extinction after a disease has turned many of its survivors into mindless, rotten beings, more machine than human. The few humans left are scattered along the wastelands, struggling to survive under the constant menace of vicious gangs commanded by Lord Mechanicus and Lady Masacres.
