Summary

Carrying on the legacy of America, but at what cost?

When a biological terrorist attack makes it impossible for anyone in America to conceive, those looking to start a family must rely on adoption of children from around the world. Brothers Jackie and Julian are adoption agents based in Nicaragua, securing deals with families willing to give their children up for adoption. The duo usually conduct their adoptions through legal means but it becomes more difficult when child kidnapping becomes the norm. Desperate and running out of options, Jackie snatches a young runaway, unaware that he’s grabbed the daughter of a local crime lord. In over their heads and on the run, the two brothers fall into the mystery at the root of their world’s status quo; a mystery much darker than they might be able to bear.

Written by emerging talent Phillip Kennedy Johnson and illustrated by Matthew Dow Smith (The X-Files), Last Sons of America is a grounded sci-fi crime story exploring families and childhood in a morally gray future.
