Coming in February, the third volume of the hit AfterShock Comics series ROUGH RIDERS is debuting and things aren’t looking any easier for the historic heroes.
Created and written by Adam Glass (executive producer of Supernatural and writer of Suicide Squad) with artwork by Patrick Olliffe (Untold Tales of Spider-Man), ROUGH RIDERS: RIDE OR DIE not only gets the gang back together, but there’s a new member on the horizon! Writer Glass describes what this new volume brings, “Theodore Roosevelt and his Rough Riders take on the dead in a story that pays homage to horror comics of past.”
It’s 1906 and Theodore Roosevelt is the sitting president when a familiar face from his past asks him once again to call upon the Rough Riders to save the world. But this time it’s not anarchists or aliens—no, it’s something from the great beyond. Something so ancient and inherently evil that the Rough Riders will need to add to their ranks in hopes of defeating it. Who will be the newest historical figure to have the honor to call themselves a Rough Rider?
If you have never read any of the ROUGH RIDERS books, shame on you. Only kidding, but this is the perfect time to see what all the hype is about. And as Adam Glass explains, “Rough Riders ‘Ride or Die’ is like a kick in the teeth from history.” If you don’t know, now you know!
