BRIGGS LAND

An American family under siege
 

Grace Briggs is the new head of the Briggs family, the largest and most secretive antigovernment secessionist movement in the United States. For over a hundred years it's been a safe harbor for anyone looking to live a simple, quiet life off the grid, but it has since devolved into a hotbed for white extremists, armed militia, and domestic terrorism.  She seeks to take control of the Land—and her family—from the forces of extremism and hate, and return it to its core values. But can she accomplish that before law enforcement finds the evidence it needs to wipe Briggs Land off the map?

Briggs Land Vol. 1: "State of Grace"
Briggs Land, nearly a hundred square miles of rural wilderness, represents the largest antigovernment secessionist movement in the United States. When matriarch Grace Briggs takes control of the operation from her incarcerated husband, she sparks a war within the community — and her immediate family —that threatens to bring the full power of the federal government down on their heads.

Briggs Land Vol. 2: "Lone Wolves"
Grace Briggs, having outmaneuvered both Federal law enforcement and an attempted takeover by white power stormtroopers, still endures troubles at home.  When a chance encounter with innocent civilians blows up into an ugly hostage situation, the privacy and integrity of Briggs Land is compromised.

INTERVIEW AT NERDIST (LINK)

Briggs Land is a uniquely American crime comic you need to be reading.
— Nerdist
AMC knew what they were doing in picking up the rights to this one. If any story deserves to be told in live action, it’s this well-oiled crime family saga.
— Black Nerd Problems
[Briggs Land is] the Sopranos of secession.
— GWW
Briggs Land feels like material for a true water cooler television crime drama we haven’t seen in a couple of years.
— Comics Beat
A gripping story of far-right terror that is empathic but never sympathetic
— Boing Boing
