Exile to Babylon Adaptation Coming from David Lapham and Dark Horse Comics

Dark Horse Comics announced earlier today that they intend to launch a digital-only adaptation of Exile to Babylon, the apocalyptic drama soon to be a major motion picture from the mind of creative director Domagoj Mazuran and producer Helen Darras.

Eisner winner David Lapham will write the four-issue miniseries with help from artist Patric Reynolds. It will be available exclusively through Dark Horse's digital comics app for iOS and Android. The first issue is already on sale, and a collected edition will be available in print on May 22, 2013.

In the year 2040, the world’s precious resources are in high demand, and security is found on the streets. A private military operative of reeducated gang members—the Blackshield Angels—is the only hope of liberating a vital fuel supply from a criminal overlord. Blackshield’s best agent struggles through betrayal, love, and a seemingly unending war zone—Zone 12—to complete his mission in a dangerous world where tattooed warlords reign supreme and giant satellites watch men from above like gods.
