Howard Chaykin’s brand new series at Image Comics, The Divided States Of Hysteria will tell a dystopic tale about the downfall of the world’s most formidable government.

The story begins in a deeply troubled America that is barely beginning to recover from a profound national trauma when a worst-case terrorist attack further destabilizes the country.

The series aims to show an America sundered. An America enraged. An America terrified. An America shattered by greed and racism, violence and fear, nihilism and tragedy.

Chaykin even believes this new series may get him arrested in the United States.

Black Kiss was banned in the UK and Canada—The Divided States of Hysteria may very well get me arrested here in the good ol’ USA.”

The Divided States of Hysteria will echo today’s political turmoil and the restlessness of a jaded society. It may even upend what you have to expect from comics.

The new series hits stands with The Divided States Of Hysteria #1 hitting comic book shelves on Wednesday, June 7th!
