This Riot Recommendation about your favorite sci-fi fantasy comics is sponsored by Pierce Brown’s Red Rising, out from Dynamite Entertainment.
In the future, when mankind has spread across the stars, the hierarchy of man is dictated by the color of one’s caste. The Golds rule all, but what will happen when one falls for a lowly Red? See how a forbidden love will set the course of events for the future and lead to the formation of the formidable Sons of Ares!
