A Night of Gatecrashing: Book One is the first four issues from the The Gatecrashers’ series compiled into a trade paperback. This volume also includes additional pages including, district descriptions from the Palomar City Police archive, newspaper articles about the city from the pages of the Palomar Observer and an interview with creator, Zachary Mortensen.
When a bomb explodes in the center of a densely packed protest rally, Gatecrasher Hex Spencer is first on the scene and what begins as a routine call shifts into a life-threatening chase through choked streets of Palomar City. Hex’s only concern is saving her patient and collecting her fee but with each turn she is drawn further into a complex web of the dangerous forces surging through the corridors of power that will destroy anything – or anyone – that gets in their way.
Welcome to Palomar City, a tightly-packed, overpopulated American mega-city. Over the last sixty years, a series of traffic control devices known as Gates have transformed this thriving metropolis into a pressure cooker of political and socio-ethnic tension that is on the verge of exploding. One of the only groups with unrestricted passage through the Gates are the emergency medical teams, nicknamed “The Gatecrashers,” who find themselves in the middle of a building conflict that threatens to tear Palomar City apart once and for all.
From the mind of creator ZACHARY MORTENSEN comes THE GATECRASHERS – an intense, immersive storyworld about a city struggling to save itself and the people who risk their lives every day to save yours.
