From the team that brought you Vertigo’s American Vampire comes Duck and
Cover, a manga-influenced teen adventure set in the strange post-apocalyptic
America... of 1955.
When a sudden nuclear exchange obliterates the United States, only the children
who hid under their school desks are spared. These teens now find themselves
the lone survivors in a strange and wild new ’50’s America. Stranger still, some of
them seem to be developing superhuman powers…
The kids knew the drill. They practiced it so many times. When the air raid siren
goes off, you hide under your desk. But they never expected to live in a world
where everyone who didn’t hide under a desk is dead. Now there are no
teachers. There are no adults. What are they supposed to do? Why were they
Duck and Cover is a riveting sci-fi thriller, chock full of Cold War paranoia, strange
mutant lands, and tribes of super powered children.
