Howard Chaykin is examining today’s political turmoil in an all-new series from Image Comics.

The United States of Hysteria is a dystopic allegorical examination of modern politics set in a near-future America that is barely recovering from national trauma when a destabilizing terrorist attack happens. The first issue of the series will be in stores on June 7.

The series will have the hallmarks of some of Chaykin’s more gonzo projects. "Black Kiss was banned in the UK and Canada — The Divided States of Hysteria may very well get me arrested here in the good ol' USA," Chaykin said

The series was originally announced during last April’s Image Expo (see “Image Announces 20 New Titles”).
