“My favorite comic of the year.” -Grant Morrison
“A genuine spark of innovation is a precious thing, and Ballistic, by filmmaker Adam Egypt Mortimer and comics star Darick Robertson, transmits that spark with shocking force. It’s a future classic, and it comes out in collected form next month.” – Publishers Weekly
Darick Robertson (Transmetropolitan, The Boys) and Adam Egypt Mortimer’s madcap, psychedelic, transreal, utterly-wacko buddy adventure about Butch and his best friend Gun, a drug-addicted, genetically-modified, foul-mouthed firearm, as they attempt to elevate Butch from air conditioner repairman to master criminal in the twisted, eco-apocalyptic Repo City State, a reclaimed trash island built from DNA-based, living technology with bad attitudes.
Ballistic marks Darick Robertson’s return to the hard sci-fi worldbuilding of his classic Transmetropolitan, but mixed with The Boys’ ultra-violence and the lunacy of Happy. Mortimer’s mix of speculative science, pulpy noire, and drug-addled adventure cooks up a strange brew of Lethal Weapon by way of Cronenberg meets Dr. Who if written by Odd Future.
USA Today – Most Insane Read 0f The Year
“Quite simply the weirdest comic out there that’s as enjoyable as it is certifiable.”
#1 Best Debut Issue of The Year
“Adam Egypt Mortimer and Darick Robertson’s Ballistic blew me away this year. I’ve read the debut issue too many times to count, and I learn new things with every read. This is a deep book, which has an overwhelming amount to offer. It’s also filled with razor sharp dialogue. The story is insanely original and well thought out. Robertson’s art is unparalleled in its mastery. If you missed this book, do yourself a favor and get it immediately. It’s a Cronenbergian love letter to the intellectual science fiction of the past and it’s damn near perfect.”
“In the future, your gun will talk to you — and it’ll be kind of an asshole. After we read Ballistic, we were blown away not just by the insane creativity of the setting, but the detail — it’s a world so fully-realized it’s like writer Adam Egypt Mortimer and artist Darick Robertson are secretly living there… It will be one of the most fun, unique sci-fi comics of the year.”
