FCBD Comic Spotlight: Dark Horse's Briggs Land: Lone Wolves #1
Jun 14, 2017
On Free Comic Book Day 2017, Dark Horse exposed fans to Brian Wood's BRIGGS LAND series, starrring Grace Briggs and her family dealing with an armed militia and opioid ring in a secessionist community.
"Briggs Land is a crime drama set on an American secessionist compound," said writer Brian Wood in an inteview with PREVIEWSworld. "The Briggs family owns and runs this big chunk of private land, and they consider themselves outside the jurisdiction of the United States. This was originally a purist endeavor, a real “back to the land” movement, but in the age of religious extremism, ultranationalism, and domestic terror, the Land’s become host to some bad elements. Grace Briggs, the matriarch, is on a mission to purge the Land — and her family — of this toxic influence. At the same time, federal law enforcement is opening up an investigation into the Land since Grace’s husband, currently behind bars, is expressing an interest in selling out the family in exchange for his own freedom."
The next chapter of Wood's series BRIGGS LAND: LONE WOLVES #1 debuts from Dark Horse Comics this week, on Wednesday, June 14 in local comic shops. The new series follows Isaac Briggs as he encounters two random backpackers that wander onto Briggs Land, a nearly one hundred square miles of rural wilderness and the largest antigovernment secessionist movement in the United States.
