Afterlift, Afterlift cover

For the first time ever, Dark Horse Comics and Comixology Originals present the Eisner-winning Afterlift in glorious print. Readers are going to be so excited to get their hands on a fast-paced story bound by car chases and demon bounty hunters.

“Janice Chen recently quit her day job in finance and signs up to be a driver on a ride-sharing app. She has enough to deal with, from annoying passengers to overbearing parents. But what was at first a mundane yet enjoyable way to pass the time takes a terrible turn when she picks up a pair of mysterious passengers who are pursued by otherworldly forces, Janice realizes that her already-terrible day might be headed straight to hell.”

Here are 5 reasons why you should get Afterlift:

5) The Creative Team!

So we have writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Jason Loo on the team! And then there’s colorist Paris Alleyne and letterer Aditya Bidikar. The must-read comic was edited by Allison O’Toole.

4) My Emotions! My Emotions!

Last year, in an interview with Comics Beat, Loo teased, “There will be moments that will tug on your heartstrings as well. Those were my favorite scenes to draw out and Paris Alleyne’s colors capture the atmospheric moods so perfectly. Also, issue one is only the tip of the iceberg before some of the cooler characters show up”.

3) The Trailer!

Did you know the creative team released a trailer for the comic book? And the soundtrack to the teaser includes Evanescence’s headbanger song, ”Bring Me to Life!” Take me back to 2003, please!

2) The Special Features!

The bonus features include a Jason Loo Sketchbook with commentary by Chip Zdarsky. There will also be a process piece called “Anatomy of a Page.” 

1) The Physical Release!

I love reading digital comics. Don’t get me wrong but there’s something about the feel of paper in your hands. So yeah, I’m definitely adding this must-have copy of Afterlift to my collection. 

Afterlift will be on sale starting February 2nd, 2021 in bookstores and everywhere books are sold (you know like Amazon, Barnes & Noble) on February 3rd, 2021.
