PREVIEW: 'Nuclear Family' #1 by Stephanie Phillips, Tony Shasteen, and JD Mettler

 America, 1957. Elvis dominates the airwaves and apple pie is served after every meal. But, with the dark cloud of nuclear holocaust looming, Korean War vet Tim McClean’s major concern is taking care of his family in the atomic age.


When the first bomb does drop on an unexpecting Midwest city, Tim and his family find themselves plunged into a strange new world, where what’s left of the United States has gone underground while continuing to wage war on Russia with unthinkable tactics.

Based on Philip K. Dick’s short story Breakfast at Twilight, NUCLEAR FAMILY is written by  Stephanie Phillips (Butcher of Paris, Heavy Metal, ARTEMIS AND THE ASSASSIN, RED ATLANTIS) and illustrated by Tony Shasteen (Star Trek). It’s Cold War-era science fiction at its most timely and terrifying.

As Phillips explained when interviewed about the series by The Hollywood Reporter at the end of last year, “[it’s] about a family that seems like the ideal nuclear family in the 1950s. But, when an unexpected nuclear attack happens on US soil, they find themselves propelled into an alternate future where the US has fled into underground bunkers in an unending nuclear war. The family struggles with this grim outlook of their future, while also trying to find a way home.”

“The series is really a collaboration with artist Tony Shasteen,” Phillips added. “We’ve tried to create a really weird vision for this nuclear future that is unlike anything that we have seen in apocalyptic fiction to this point.”

The blast from and to the past debuts tomorrow, February 24, at comic shops everywhere.
