Nearly three years ago, Black Mask Studios made waves with the brutal, politically-tinged thriller Young Terrorists. Now the complete story is being collected in one package, and we have a look inside.

Created by Matt Pizzolo and Amancay Nahuelpan in 2015 before they went on to create the grim dystopian series Calexit for Black Mask, Young Terrorists follows a young woman named Sera who finds herself caught up in a violent conspiracy that sees her abducted for her father's role in a shadowy new world order.
After going through horrendous abuse, Sera finds freedom off the grid, taking on the role of a rebel operative looking to fight back against the surveillance state of a near-future America.
The full series is now being collected together - including an extra story written for Free Comic Book Day 2016 - for a trade release this month, and to celebrate, we have a preview of what you can expect if you've never read the series before. A warning though, as you might expect from a tale about violent conspiracies run amok, it does get a bit NSFW - so be careful where you read!
The Young Terrorists trade paperback is available in comic stores now, ahead of a wider release May 15.
