In The Slicks, bounty hunter Leon Miller continues his epic hunt of the last of the Ten Most Wanted mutants—Number Six. The chase takes him into a giant, polluted oil slick that covers nearly a fourth of the planet.
Miller hires a mercenary pilot to take them into the Slicks. As they fly across the outer boundaries of the oil-covered wasteland, I tried to convey a sense of crossing the Rubicon, going beyond the point of no return. I’ve experienced that sensation a handful of times in my life and it’s a powerful, exciting and scary feeling.
Going into The Slicks is hard — getting out alive is damn near impossible.
