TRDWTR: The Graphic Novel Spotlight


By: Ricky Strong(@strongricky)

In a pre-apocalyptic tale, as the world is forced to deal with the effects of an unstable global economy, the Euro finally collapses. The world nose dives into chaos. Mass rioting, looting, and outright civil disobedience erupts. While many nations begin to focus on protecting and securing their respective borders, others feel that the only way to deter attacks is with a preemptive gesture of strength. As Germany forms its aggressive stance behind a true military German patriot, General Kirklau, it becomes more than evident that the balance of global powers is all but obsolete. Governments and worldwide organizations have their hands tied, as one wrong move by any of them could launch an all-out world war. Treadwater is the only organization taking a proactive stance to keep the world afloat, while others helplessly do just that – tread water.

Treadwater, referenced by the acronym TRDWTR (Technological Research and Development Working Toward a Resolution), is the product of a brilliant medical researcher named Allen Downs. Downs has hand-picked each member of the TRDWTR team by bartering something uniquely important to them in exchange for working as one of his super operatives. While General Kirklau and Germany are perceived to be the biggest threat by the rest of the world, another, much bigger THREAT grows stronger – the Children of Chaos. TRDWTR knows that it’s only a matter of time before the world sees true destruction and devastation at their hands.

TRDWTR is a new franchise from Morgan Rosenblum and Darkrose Studios featuring a team of super operatives battling threats in a dystopian future. TRDWTR was originally conceived as a screenplay, but was adapted into a graphic novel that goes on sale today, September 10, 2014 at Midtown Comics in New York.
TRDWTR #1 is available at all Midtown Comics locations in New York City and online here.
