You aren’t ready for IDW‘s The Ministry of Compliance #1. Written by John Ridley with art by Stefano Raffaele, the new sci-fi series from IDW, we called the book “funny… It’s dangerous,” in our advance review.
We also noted it is “nauseating at points”… Something you can get a hint of in the bloody action sequence below. Take a look, and prepare yourself.

The Ministry Of Compliance #1 Official Synopsis:
Eisner Award-nominated comic book writer John Ridley (The Other History of the DC Universe, I Am Batman) delivers a bold, new vision of science fiction with THE MINISTRY OF COMPLIANCE. Thirty-seven years ago, Earth was secretly invaded by an alien force known as the Devolution, and they have been shaping the direction humanity has been going in ever since to prepare us to be assimilated into their empire.
The Devolution has thirteen ministries, each responsible for manipulating a different aspect of human life. The Ministry of Compliance, the most feared of all the ministries, led by the fierce Avigail Senna, makes sure all the ministries stay in line and remain focused on the Devolution’s mission. As it appears the Ministry’s mission is on the verge of being completed and Earth will be assimilated, things begin to go terribly wrong, and a conspiracy among the ministries breaks out that Avigail must deal with head-on.
The beginning of comics’ next sci-fi epic in this oversized debut issue from John Ridley and acclaimed artist Stefano Raffaele (The Joker, GCPD: The Blue Wall)!
