(W) John Pence (A/CA) Zack Dolan, Laurie Foster, Eve Orozco
Set about 15 years after the world fell apart, a nomadic physician struggles to survive in a savage frontier of the poor and powerless, trying to balance her calling as a healer with the necessity of killing for survival. As a consequence, maybe she’s become more skilled with her saber than she is with a scalpel, and she’s trying to get out from under that reputation.
In Chapter 1, Turtle Island, we follow Doc Hanover as she answers a call for medical help that takes her farther west than she’s been -- away from the violence and anarchy she knew back east and away from her past. At the feet of South Dakota’s Black Hills, she finds a surprisingly prosperous and peaceful fort, where destiny has plans for her.
Created and written by John Pence, The Surgeon has now been brought to life by the Unlikely Heroes Studios team! Zack Dolan, Laurie Foster, Eve Orozco, and Erek Foster are bringing you this .45 caliber adventure of guns, swords, fists, scalpels, laughs, and maybe a few secret tough-guy tears.
