Catching Up With Snyder and Soule's Undiscovered Country

Scott Snyder and Charles Soule Image comic Undiscovered Country has been a hit since the first issue shipped. The Giuseppe Camuncoli drawn series takes place in a world where the United States has sealed itself off from the outside world for quite some time. But when a global epidemic threatens to kill millions a team of specialists will have to enter the US where they find that everything has changed and the US is filled with strange creatures and roving bands of marauders ruling the country. Snyder says the series came to be when he noticed a trend in the country to become isolationist so he started to do research and he and Soule ended up learning about such things like the strange fish we see after they both took a visit to DARPA (the huge think tank). So what they came up with was an off the chain version of Star Wars with weird creatures and rolling cities. Every city that we see in the series will be what could happen in certain regions of the country if America went in a certain direction. And each city is different by design. The main character of the book is Sam Elgin, who at the start of the series declared himself as the un-silent majority. He is the one who sent the message for the specialists to enter the US but there is something going on with him that we havenít learned yet. Both feel that the relationship between Daniel and Charlotte is the emotional core of the series but as things progress we will learn why each member of the team was chosen along with their back stories. And just because the two are in a relationship at the beginning of he series doesnít mean that it will last past the first arc. The comic was optioned to become a film even before the first issue shipped.
