Retirees takes place in the distant future where people live in a utopian society known as the Retreats, where prosperity exists at the expense of the disenfranchised lower class living in the slums of Brine. To escape a life of servitude, citizens of Brine are given the opportunity to fight on the battlefields for a chance to become a citizen of the retreats. This chance for upward mobility seems impossible, especially for John Canty, a citizen of Brine who has lost loved ones in the battlefields. Things change, however, when he meets a boy in the retreats named Edward, who bears a striking resemblance to his son Gable.
night of silence follows Leah, who returns to her hometown to discover her father’s corpse. Although this is considered a suicide by authorities, evidence suggests otherwise.
Finally, 100 follows Hoyoung Cheon, who must survive a 100-player battle royale game called Battlegrounds. Equipped with a frying pan and a gun, Hoyoung must search for an Assemblyman who was captured while reviewing the game and is now an unwitting participant.
PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS is a popular battle royale video game that places players in a large-scale battlefield, forcing them to survive under high stakes and be the last one standing. The new comics are a mix of thrill, horror, and action to mirror the gaming experience.
pensions, night of silence and 100 will be available January 29 on WEBTOON in the United States, with the first three issues available for free on the platform.
